Scotland’s largest airline today announced new summer Inverness-Belfast and Glasgow-Newquay routes on the expectation of a “pent up demand” for travel when Covid restrictions are eased.
The peak-season move by Easyjet will see it compete against Loganair’s year-round Inverness-Belfast service, which is due to resume in April after the Covid lockdowns.
But The Scotsman has learned that Easyjet’s new Newquay route has prompted the Glasgow-based airline to ditch its plans to operate the route this summer, which was served by Flybe before its collapse last March.
Easyjet said it planned to launch both services twice weekly from late June.
