Clients who were issued with EasyJet vouchers during the COVID-19 pandemic will be able to use them until the end of January 2024.
This follows the airline’s announcement that its spring 2024 schedule is now on sale, with 100,000 flights between 24 March and 2 June (including Easter) now available to book. These include 60,000 flights to and from the UK, with seats priced from £24.99 for early bookings at www.easyjet.com or via the airline’s mobile app.
With more flights to choose from, the airline says it is now extending the validity of any vouchers issued throughout the pandemic. “Any customers who opted to receive a voucher during the pandemic and are yet to redeem it will now have their voucher validity automatically extended from 31 July 2023 to 31 January 2024, providing them with more time and more choice for making a future booking.”
According to EasyJet, the extensions will be carried out over the coming weeks and customers will be notified directly once their voucher has been extended. “Customers with vouchers do not have to have flown by the time the voucher expires, and vouchers can be used to book flights to any EasyJet destination.”
The low-cost airline company has also launched “thousands” more package holidays for spring 2024, available to book through EasyJet Holidays. The packages include flights, hotel, 23 kilograms of luggage and transfers on beach holidays, all covered by EasyJet’s “ultimate flexibility, offering freedom to change a booking, a refund guarantee, and best price guarantee”.
Announcing the spring deals, UK country manager Ali Gayward said, “We are delighted to be putting our spring 2024 schedule on sale today, so that customers can book early and enjoy great value fares on flights and package holidays for a spring break or Easter getaway and to provide even more time for those with unredeemed vouchers to use them to book something to look forward to. And, with our schedule now available to book up until 2 June 2024, our customers can choose from an unrivalled range of nearly 1,000 routes to more than 150 airports in 35 countries across Europe, northern Africa and the Middle East.”
During the pandemic EasyJet provided customers on cancelled flights with options to receive a refund, or transfer to an alternative flight free of charge, or receive a voucher. “The airline has continued to extend the validity of these vouchers to provide customers with more opportunity to redeem them and has continued to contact customers directly to remind them of the vouchers they have available.” Customers can also check their voucher balance and expiry date on www.easyjet.com via the airline’s voucher checker tool.
Last month EasyJet released the results of a survey which showed that summer holidays to such destinations as Murcia’s Costa Cálida are still a cherished priority when British tourists are planning their budgets.
