Operators have scrambled to add capacity to holiday destinations that have been added to the green list.

EasyJet has put more than 50,000 seats on sale, with new routes to Malta from Bristol and Luton launching next month and extra capacity on Gatwick and Manchester routes, which are bookable now.

Extra flights and holidays have also been added to Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza.

CEO Johan Lundgren said: “EasyJet is ready and able to ramp up.”

Jet2 has put more holidays on sale, with Ibiza, Majorca, Madeira and Malta operational from 1 July.

A new route, from Stansted to Malta will launch on 3 July, every Tuesday and Saturday until the end of August. The service is one of 70 extra flights to Malta and Madeira for the summer.

New flights have been added to Madeira from Birmingham and Leeds Bradford, with extra services to Malta from Birmingham, Leeds Bradford, Manchester and Newcastle.

CEO Steve Heapy said Thursday night’s announcement on new destinations added to the green list was ‘an overdue but welcome step in the right direction’.
