EasyJet, Ryanair and Jet2 have been ranked as some of the world’s best low-cost airlines.

EasyJet, Ryanair and Jet2 have been named as some of the world’s best low-cost airlines in a top 20 ranking.

Easyjet came in sixth place, Ryanair came in eighth and Jet2 came in at fifteenth.

The new rankings were announced at the 2021 Skytrax awards in the budget airline category. The research looked at over 350 airlines and covered things such as customer service, cabin seat comfort, cabin cleanliness, food quality and the check-in process.

EasyJet was also named first in the UK’s best low-cost airline, Ryanair was named third best in Europe and Jet2 came in at sixth.

As of October 4, the UK will no longer have an amber travel list and countries will be placed on either a green or red list.

Travellers returning to the UK from countries on the red list will have to quarantine in a hotel.

For travellers returning to the UK from the green, or ‘rest of the world’, list, rules will depend on their vaccination status.

Brits who are fully vaccinated will no longer have to take a pre-departure test when travelling back to the UK and at the end of October (the date is yet to be confirmed), they will also only need to take a lateral flow test on day two rather than a PCR test.

Brits who haven’t been vaccinated will need to self-isolate for up to 10 days and take a PCR test on day two and day eight.
