Covid: EasyJet flights cancelled

EasyJet and British Airways have been forced to cancel flights because of high levels of Covid-19 infections among staff, in a reflection of rising UK case numbers after the removal of almost all pandemic restrictions.

EasyJet has cancelled 222 flights since Friday because of coronavirus absences. It said it had made efforts to offset staff shortages by rostering additional standby crew on the weekend but was forced to make “additional cancellations for [Sunday] and [Monday]”.

A total of 62 flights scheduled for Monday have been pulled, most of which were announced at short notice on Saturday.
