Easyjet puts autumn and winter flights on sale early
EasyJet has put all its flights for autumn and next winter on sale early – for a flat fare of £29.99, even during Christmas and school holiday peaks, writes the Guardian’s transport correspondent Gwyn Topham.
The airline said the move will give more scope to passengers who had booked flights for the next couple of months to find alternatives, without any charges to change existing bookings (or to rebook should the crisis persist).
The extraordinary step could provide particularly good deals for people booking in the next week for peak season – and perhaps a glimmer of optimism for some normality ahead.
EasyJet will hope it generates some revenues and forward bookings at a time when demand has vanished and airlines await details of the chancellor’s promised package of help, with the industry warning that most airlines worldwide could go bankrupt by the end of May.
Budget airline Ryanair is reducing its free check-in window from four days before flights to just two days from Wednesday 13 June.
Customers who don’t pay to reserve a seat will only be able to check in online from 48 hours to two hours predeparture – and if you don’t check in during this window, you’ll be charged a hefty £55-per-person fee to do so at the airport.
But if you do buy a seat reservation, which costs from £4 upwards, you’ll be able to check in from 60 days before departure.
The change applies to ALL flights from 13 June – both new bookings and existing reservations.
