EasyJet has become the latest firm to report a surge in bookings to France with skiers ‘racing to the slopes’.
The budget carrier claimed it saw a 600% lift in sales for ski resorts in the hours after French authorities eased travel restrictions.
From today, Brits no longer have to justify their reasons for travelling or self-isolate although they will need to produce a negative COVID test taken 24 hours before arriving in France.
With consumer confidence increasing across the board, easyJet also reported a 386% increase in bookings to Switzerland.
EasyJet UK country manager Ali Gayward said: “With France welcoming British tourists once again, skiing is well and truly back on. This is welcome news for UK consumers, particularly for those looking to book a last-minute family break or planning to head to the slopes, with low fares still available across thousands of flights to France this winter, including over half-term.
“We know that there is pent up demand with many desperate to get away this year, which we continue to see each time restrictions are removed. With flying already scheduled to increase in the coming weeks we will continue to review our schedule to meet demand and we look forward to taking our customers away on a long-awaited break this winter.”
