EasyJet has shifted flights to Spain from the UK to Germany due to the ongoing restrictions on international travel.

Aircraft that were due to operate from UK airports to Majorca this summer have been moved to Berlin.

EasyJet told the Independent: “We are seeing European governments progressively opening up using frameworks in place which enable travel and much of it restriction-free.

“This relaxation and removal of restrictions has sparked a positive booking momentum across Europe with the majority of our bookings showing a strong swing towards Europe – when in normal times it would be a 50-50 split with the UK.”

It said that over the past week it has added 150,000 further seats to its intra-European network.

“Europe is demonstrating that a safe reopening of travel is possible and so we continue to urge the UK government to do so urgently so our customers in the UK can reunite with loved ones or travel for a much-needed break,” added a spokesperson.

The Independent also reported that demand for holiday flights in Germany is so strong that Lufthansa is flying Boeing 747 aircraft from Frankfurt to Palma and wide-bodied A350s from Munich to Palma.

Meanwhile, Polish airline LOT is now flying Boeing 787s from Warsaw to the Greek islands, it said.
