EasyJet grounds entire fleet due to COVID-19 crisis

LONDON, March 31, 2020

British budget carrier easyJet has grounded its entire fleet of planes in response to the collapse in demand for air travel because of the coronavirus pandemic, said a report.
 
The airline said it could not give a date for when they would restart, said a report in BBC.
 
EasyJet said its cabin crew would be furloughed, with staff paid 80 per cent of their wage from April 1 through the government's job retention scheme.
 
The airline's boss, Johan Lundgren, said he was "working tirelessly" to make sure the airline was "well positioned to overcome the challenges of coronavirus".
 
"I am extremely proud of the way in which people across EasyJet have given their absolute best at such a challenging time," he added.
