EasyJet France bookings skyrocket

Monday, Jan 17, 2022 0

As France announced it will welcome back UK tourists, easyJet saw a 600% lift in UK bookings to popular French ski destinations for the remainder of the winter season.

Last-minute bookings to Switzerland also spiked immediately after the news broke with a 386% increase in flight bookings, suggesting consumer confidence in international travel continues to build. 

Recent research carried out by the airline showed that around two-thirds (65%) of Brits are planning to prioritise a trip abroad in 2022.

EasyJet says it is offering more seats to Europe’s major ski destinations from the UK this winter than any other carrier.

The airline has also extended its Big Orange Sale, with up to 25% off selected seats and low fares still available to book until 18 January 2022.

It is operating 37 routes this winter from the UK to 10 destinations across Europe which serve the continent’s major ski resorts.
