British low-cost airline easyJet has announced that it will be resuming flights in July, connecting Portugal’s four main airports – Lisbon, Porto, Faro and Funchal (Madeira) – to 50 destinations in July and 59 in August.
In a statement to the press, the airline said half of its network would be reopen by the end of July, increasing to 75% during August.
“Flights will be at a lower frequency than normal, meaning the airline will operate at around 30% of its normal capacity between July and September,” the airline said.
In Portugal, easyJet says it will be operating 78% and 92% of its usual flights in July and August, respectively.
In a bid to “help our clients fly again”, the airline is selling one million tickets for €29.99.
“Flight restrictions are being lifted and demand is returning, so there is no better time for us to launch this campaign,” said José Lopes, general manager of EasyJet Portugal.
