EasyJet is restarting flights from today across the UK for the first time since March.
The airline’s first UK flight as it restarts operations will be the 7am departure from Gatwick to Glasgow.
The travel industry is gradually gearing up once more after the pandemic left airlines grounding virtually all their planes.
The Foreign Office currently advises against all non-essential travel, but this is expected to change soon.
Sources have claimed that the rules could be loosened in order to allow for Brits to travel to low-risk countries.
But as easyJet gears up to once again resume flying, we’ve taken a look at the new rules in place.
All passengers and cabin crew will be required to wear masks when travelling.
No food will be served on board and passengers will be offered hand sanitiser and wipes.
The airline has promised that planes will be regularly cleaned in between services and disinfected.
Where will easyJet fly to and from?
From June 15, EasyJet will fly mainly between UK airports with one international service from the UK will fly to Nice.

EasyJet chief executive Johan Lundgren previously said: “I am really pleased that we will be returning to flying in the middle of June.
“These are small and carefully planned steps that we are taking to gradually resume operations.
“We will continue to closely monitor the situation across Europe so that, when more restrictions are lifted, the schedule will continue to build over time to match demand, while also ensuring we are operating efficiently and on routes that our customers want.
“The safety and wellbeing of our customers remains our highest priority, which is why we are implementing a number of measures to enhance safety at each part of the journey, from disinfecting the aircraft to requiring customers and crew to wear masks.
“These measures will remain in place for as long as is needed to ensure customers and crew are able to fly safely as the world continues to recover from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.”
