easyJet has put two new domestic flights and more seats on sale today from Manchester to Scotland to serve demand for domestic travel.

Flights from Manchester to Edinburgh take off 9 July, operating four times a week on Mondays, Wednesday, Fridays and Sundays with fares starting from £30.99.

The airline has also put over 40,000 additional seats on sale on its existing route from Belfast International to Manchester from 9 July, which will now operate 27 times a week.

Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager commented:

We know our customers can’t wait to be reunited with friends and family or have more opportunity to explore the UK so these new routes from Manchester should prove popular and will further strengthen our domestic network providing customers with even more choice.

“We also know it is important to our customers to be reunited with loved ones overseas so we continue to urge the UK government to add more countries to the Green list – which can be done safely - to make this possible.”

“We continue to have some of the most flexible policies currently in place so customers can book with confidence and change their plans if they need to, making travel as easy as possible this summer.”

Karen Smart, Managing Director of Manchester Airport, commented:

We welcome easyJet’s announcement of these two new routes, in addition to the expansion of the airline’s Belfast service.

“This will enhance the choice on offer for passengers, is great for connectivity between Manchester and the rest of the UK, and in time, will also give travellers in Scotland and Northern Ireland improved access to onward connections from Manchester to hundreds of destinations internationally.

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, or request a voucher 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.

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.
