easyJet launches two new routes to Jersey and Newquay, and more seats from Birmingham Airport

easyJet has recently announced the launch of two new domestic routes to Jersey and Newquay from Birmingham Airport

The airline will launch operations from Birmingham with new flights to Jersey and Newquay and fares starting from £22.99. The airline has also added thousands of additional seats on its existing route from Birmingham to Belfast International from July 3, operating six times a week.

Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager, commented: ‘We know our customers can’t wait to be reunited with friends and family or have more opportunity to explore the UK so the new routes from Birmingham should prove popular and will further strengthen our UK domestic network providing customers with even more choice.

‘We also know it is important to our customers to be reunited with loved ones overseas so we continue to urge the UK government to add more countries to the Green list – which can be done safely – to make this possible.

‘We continue to have some of the most flexible policies currently in place so customers can book with confidence and change their plans if they need to, making travel as easy as possible this summer.’

Nick Barton, CEO of Birmingham Airport said: ‘It is great news that EasyJet is offering twice weekly flights to Jersey and Newquay from Birmingham Airport for summer 2021. Newquay and Jersey do not fall under the government traffic light system as they are both classed as domestic within the common travel area, giving ease and flexibility for those needing to holiday or travel for business. These domestic summer sun routes complement the existing Belfast International, Edinburgh and Glasgow services that EasyJet currently offers from Birmingham and we’re pleased that this valued airline customer is expanding its operation for Midlanders.’

easyJet is offering flexible booking policies under its ‘Protection Promise’ scheme. Customers will now be able to change their flights this summer without a change fee, at any time up to two hours before departure, or request a voucher. There are no restrictions on dates or destination; customers can transfer to any flights currently on sale up to the end of September 2022.
