easyJet travel disruption update
Due to the volcanic eruption in Iceland, UK Air Traffic Control (NATS) has now closed UK airspace until at least 13:00hrs on Friday 16 April. This means that easyJet is currently unable to operate flights in and out of the UK. We are unable to say when normal operations will resume given the uncertainty of this situation, however the disruption is likely to continue throughout the day tomorrow.
Flights to and from France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and from elsewhere in Europe are also affected. We therefore strongly advise all passengers who are booked to travel with easyJet tomorrow to visit easyJet.com before travelling to the airport. Passengers who are booked to travel on a cancelled flight should not travel to the airport but should instead arrange either a full refund or a free transfer to another flight on the same route within 30 days of the original flight date through easyJet.com.
