Following the country lockdowns, travel restrictions and changes to travel advice across its network, easyJet has taken the decision to ground its entire fleet of aircraft.

easyJet said that it is parking all of its 344 planes to remove significant cost as the aviation industry struggles to cope with a collapse in demand caused by the outbreak of the virus.

EasyJet chief executive Johan Lundgren said: “I am extremely proud of the way in which people across easyJet have given their absolute best at such a challenging time, including so many crew who have volunteered to operate rescue flights to bring our customers home.

“We are working tirelessly to ensure that easyJet continues to be well positioned to overcome the challenges of coronavirus.”
