Robert Carey, easyJet Chief Commercial Officer said: "We’ve taken the decision to put our flights for the winter season on sale today in order to support customers as much as possible during this time."
The new flights are available for all passengers to book, but are also available for passengers who have had their current flights affected by the travel ban.
The new routes provide more options for people who need to move their flights to a later date.
With the flight change fee also waived, it means travellers have more choice of flight options to be able to move their current cancelled flights for their next holiday.
It is also the first time that easyJet flights have cost a flat fee of £29.99, including taxes and charges.
Despite this, the government currently warns against all non-essential travel abroad due to the coronavirus pandemic spreading across Europe, now dubbed the "epicentre".
While the warning is only in place for 30 days, this is likely to be extended and it is uncertain how long the travel advisory could last.
UK airports are also likely to close and repatriation flights are "unrealistic" for Brits who find themselves stranded abroad.
Other countries have banned British tourists too, with flights cancelled and borders closed, which is likely to extend for the next few months.
