EasyJet extends flexible Covid booking rules – here is what it means for your cancelled holidays


EASYJET is extending its flexible Covid booking rules until the end of March 2022.

Concern over the spread of the new Omicron Covid variant has prompted the budget airline to give passengers more flexibility during a time of travel uncertainty.

With a growing number of countries being added to the red list, easyJet customers can now make changes to their flights without a change fee up to two hours before departure.

This gives flyers last-minute flexibility if new Covid restrictions are announced.

There are no restrictions on flight dates or destinations, and customers with both new and existing bookings can transfer to any flights currently on sale up to the end of September 2022.

So if there are some travel restrictions impacting a customer's destination country, they can easily change their trip to another country on easyJet's network.

The budget airline's existing travel restriction protection for flights will remain in place until the end of next year.

The protection gives customers flexibility if a lockdown, travel ban or hotel quarantine is imposed by the government.

If that happens, customers are able to receive a refund, a voucher or can transfer their flight for free.

The Government has warned of the dangers of the Omicron variant, with Health Secretary Sajid Javid saying it could be the most dangerous variant so far.

Fourteen cases of the variant have now been detected in the UK.

Face masks are once again compulsory in shops and on public transport, but not in pubs and restaurants.

And new travel rules were introduced today for Brits returning from abroad.

All Brits must now self-isolate for two days when returning from any country, and pay for a PCR test to be taken on or before day two.
