EasyJet has begun cancelling most of its summer flights just days after saying it would resume services on routes where there was enough demand to be profitable.

Most of its planned departures were shown as operating as late as yesterday. But there are now just three out of 10 of the original schedule still flying.

The budget airline announced on 21 May that it would resume flying from 15 June, mainly domestic services.

It still plans to operate half of its network of 1,022 routes from next month, increasing to three-quarters in August.

But 70% of flights between July and September will be grounded.

Robert Carey, easyJet’s chief commercial and planning officer, said: “We will be flying the majority of our route network across Europe, meaning customers can still get to their chosen destination for their summer holidays this year.”
