easyJet to run some replacement Gatwick flights today

Airline easyJet said it would be operating a limited number of flights from Gatwick Airport today to replace ones that should have operated yesterday.

These include flights to Faro, Basle, Malaga, Alicante and Amman, while passengers from a cancelled flight from Gibraltar to Gatwick will be travelling on one from Malaga today.

EasyJet said it would be unable to schedule any further flights today because of limited capacity at airports and crew availability.

A spokesman said:

Due to the high amount of cancellations that were unavoidable on the 24th, we are currently working on a plan to repatriate all passengers back to their destinations as soon as possible.

But please be advised this may take a couple of days whilst the programme resumes to normal operation from Thursday.
