easyJet has seen UK bookings surge within hours of the UK government confirmation that fully-vaccinated travellers will no longer be required to take a PDT (pre-departure test) to return to the UK from non-red list countries.
The change comes into effect on October 4th, ahead of the half-term holiday.
Flight bookings for the late summer season increased significantly, with beach resorts among top destinations for this autumn and travel in October proving most popular, suggesting that Brits are keen to book a late summer break getaway.
Alicante, Majorca and Tenerife in Spain and Faro in Portugal are proving to be the most popular destinations for travel in October.
In the coming days easyJet will be adding a further 51,000 seats for departures from the UK to beach destinations for October.
easyJet has seen strong early demand for ski destinations for the New Year, with the top destinations being Geneva from Manchester, London Luton, Birmingham, Bristol, Liverpool and London Gatwick.
easyJet operates 325 routes from the UK to 94 destinations across 35 countries in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East from the UK and is one of the UK leading operators to European green and amber list destinations, with nearly two million seats still available for a late summer getaway.
