easyJet has today brought its Easter 2021 flight sale forward by five months in an attempt to attract sales.
THE airline will be desperate to recover as the aviation industry continues to be among the hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic.
The Luton-based budget airline is now allowing customers to book reduced flights for the two week period between March 28 and April 18 next year.
easyJet secured a £600 million loan from the Treasury and the Bank of England’s coronavirus fund, earlier this month.
The company, which employs 9,000 employees, was the first airline in the UK last month to stop all flights and ground jets due to the health crisis.
The bookings though have outraged customers on the Costas who are still owed money by the airline for cancelled flights.
“I’ve been waiting six weeks for a refund when the law is seven days, are they going to pay me back with somebody else’s money now?” said Steph Williams of La Cala.
“I see today they have only just put their refund application form back on their website, I’ve been seven weeks without no flight or refund and trying to get through on the phone is hopeless,” said Dean Jenkins.
