Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager said: “We know that people want to travel as soon as they can and as soon as it is safe to do so and so we want to ensure they have even more destinations to choose from when making a booking for this summer. “And while we remain optimistic for summer travel, given the successful roll out of the vaccination programme which will be an important trigger for the Government to begin to unwind some restrictions, our Protection Promise means that customers can book with confidence knowing that if they are unable to travel or their plans change so can their flights or holiday. And unlike other airlines we will offer customers refunds if they are impacted by a travel ban, even if their flight is not cancelled, which is industry leading. “And in the meantime we continue to focus on offering a network of the most attractive destinations and ensuring we will be ready to ramp up our flights so we can take our customers away to see friends and family or on long-awaited holiday breaks when they can safely take to the skies again.”

The rich heritage, culinary scene and historic distilleries of Inverness makes it perfect for a city break as well as offering excellent connections to picturesque seaside resorts and the legendary Loch Ness. Flights to Inverness will operate twice a week on Mondays and Fridays throughout the peak summer season from 28 June 2021.

We can’t wait to start taking people away on their well-earned breaks once again.”

Uel Hoey, Business Development Director, Belfast International Airport, commented: “It is fantastic to join with easyJet in order to report positive air travel developments coming down the track for Summer 2021 and beyond. The COVID-enforced curtailment of the past year has served to remind everyone of just how central a liberty and lifestyle issue the freedom to travel and experience different surroundings has become.
