easyJet has launched flights from Manchester Airport to Green list destination Ibiza for the first time, with the inaugural flight having taken off on Saturday, 3 July at 15:20 with 130 passengers onboard reuniting customers with friends and family and taking holidaymakers away on a long-awaited break.

Flights from Manchester to Ibiza are now operating up to three times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays throughout the summer, providing customers in the North West of England with even more choice to get away. Seats are on sale at easyJet.com with great value fares still available from just £24.99*. Alternatively, anyone looking for a getaway to this Balearic isle can book a package with easyJet holidays, such as a seven night stay on a bed and breakfast basis at the Invisa Es Pla Hotel from £369 per person which includes flights, accommodation, transfers and 23kg of luggage per person.

Ibiza is an idyllic Mediterranean destination, offering something for everyone, with small coves and pine forests set by the sea, sleepy villages full of rural charm as well as luxury beach clubs and accommodation in paradise-like settings, Ibiza combines exciting nightlife with a historic UNESCO World Heritage town and scenic nature reserves.

All customers booking flights with easyJet benefit from some of the most flexible policies under its ‘Protection Promise’ which means that customers can book now with the confidence that if their plans change, so can their booking.

Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager said:

“We are delighted to have launched flights for the very first time from Manchester to Ibiza, providing more choice for our customers in the North West, which will be popular with those looking to reunite with family and friends or take a long-awaited holiday."

“We have over million seats operating to current European Green list destinations this summer and are ready and able to ramp up. We are focused on providing greater connectivity for customers in the North West as well as offering great value fares and more choice when they fly with us.”

Karen Smart, Managing Director of Manchester Airport, said:

“It is really pleasing to see easyJet now operating a direct service to Ibiza for the first time, giving passengers in our catchment area even more choice.

“We look forward to continue working with easyJet as travel restrictions continue to ease and even more destinations are added to the Green List over time.”

All customers booking flights with easyJet benefit from industry leading flexible booking policies under its ‘Protection Promise’ which means that customers can book now with confidence that if their plans change, so can their booking. 

All easyJet customers will now be able to change their flights this summer without a change fee at any time up to two hours before departure, providing even more last-minute flexibility. Unlike other airlines, there are no restrictions on dates or destination; customers can transfer to any flights currently on sale up to the end of September 2022, and to any other destination on the airline’s network which spans 35 countries across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. This means that if some travel restrictions are impacting their destination country, such as self-isolation in destination or on return to the UK, customers can easily change their trip to another country on easyJet’s network. Plus, should a mandatory hotel quarantine impact a customer’s travel destination this summer, customers can now request a refund for their flight within four weeks before departure if the restriction is still in place, even if their flights are still operating.

The safety and wellbeing of all customers and crew remains easyJet’s highest priority and the airline continues to have a number of biological safety measures in place onboard in line with guidance from the relevant authorities. This includes daily enhanced cabin disinfection effective in protecting against coronavirus for at least 24 hours and mandatory mask wearing for customers and crew. All easyJet aircraft are already fitted with HEPA filters, similar to those used in hospitals, which filter 99.97% of airborne contaminants in the cabin, including viruses and bacteria.
