Coronavirus pandemic: EasyJet make 'significant cancellations'

EasyJet is making “significant cancellations” for the foreseeable future, which could result in the grounding of the "majority" of its fleet.

They will continue to offer rescue flights for short periods in order to repatriate customers.

IAG (the owner of British Airways) revealed its capacity for April and May would be cut by "at least 75 percent," compared with the same period for 2019.

EasyJet chief executive Johan Lundgren said: "European aviation faces a precarious future and it is clear that co-ordinated government backing will be required to ensure the industry survives and is able to continue once this crisis is over,"

He went on to say: "We continue to operate rescue and repatriation flights to get people home where we can, so they can be with family and friends in these difficult times.”

Martin Lewis advised viewers to get travel insurance after booking flights. Take a look at his tweet below...
