Further ahead easyJet recently put its spring 2024 schedules on sale, including over 60,000 flights to and from the UK.

And next summer the carrier will launch 15 new routes from Birmingham, to destinations including Barcelona, Tenerife, Antalya, Berlin, Jersey, Malaga, Sharm El Sheikh, Rhodes, Alicante, Dalaman, Corfu, Heraklion, Larnaca, Tunisia and Kos.

However this week easyJet also confirmed plans to cancel around 1,700 summer flights from Gatwick, citing “challenging conditions” due to ATC strikes and the ongoing war in Ukraine.
