Flights with easyJet will start up from Wednesday, July 1, giving people the first chance to take holiday flights since non-essential air travel came to a halt in March.

The aviation industry has warned of huge difficulties in overcoming the financial hit of bringing services to a halt and the new restrictions needed to make flying safe for staff and customers.

EasyJet is to restart flights from Newcastle International Airport from next month.

It will relaunch its domestic and international flights from 14 airports across the UK, with London Gatwick, London Luton, Manchester and Edinburgh among those to join the North East airport in handling services.

It will operate around 500 flights a day across Europe, including more than 900 a week to and from the UK.

Newcastle’s destination list includes Belfast, where flight on the first day of next month will cost £56.99 or Bristol from £20.99 when flights resume later in July.

Those who want to catch more sun can head to Faro from £34.99, Corfu from £38.99, Majorca Palma from £33.99, Nice or Split from £26.99, Alicante or Malta from £42.99, Malaga from £46.99 and Barcelona from £52.99.

Easyjet bosses have commissioned the artist Will Sliney, who has worked on Marvel, Spider-Man and Star Wars artworks before, to create a range of comic-book inspired facemasks for young passengers to wear.

Robert Carey, easyJet chief commercial and strategy officer said: “We are really pleased to be relaunching even more of our flights from 1 July and starting to get customers away on their much-needed summer holidays.

"With so many families travelling over the peak summer easyJet has teamed up with a superhero illustrator to create comic book inspired face mask covers for children flying this summer to help ease the experience for both kids and parents.

“Of course, the safety and wellbeing of our customers and crew remains our highest priority.

“This is why we have implemented a number of measures enhancing safety at each part of the journey from disinfecting the aircraft to requiring customers and crew to wear masks.

"These measures will remain in place for as long as is needed to ensure customers and crew are able to fly safely as the world continues to recover from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.”

This week Ryanair restarted flights to Alicante and from next month, passengers will be able to head to Dublin, Gdansk, Wroclaw, Faro, Malaga and Mallorca.

A flight to Alicante later this month costs £257.99, while a flight to Faro early next month is priced at £137.99.

The cost of heading to Palma de Mallorca next month is £116.99 or £79.99 to reach Malaga.
