Our first easyJet flight
It’s easier with easyJet for sure, we took our fist easyJet flight from Gatwick to Cyprus in October 2020 and found every element of the flight booking to be really easy and straight forward.
The flight booking was extremely clear about the travel requirements, which was super important as it was just after the first lock down and only a few travel corridors were open.
We booked the last minute flights after our first choice holiday was cancelled with only 24 hours notice. We quickly had to have corona testing, received our results and applied for a Cyprus travel pass within 48 hours and then booked our flights- talk about tight timing!
The booking process is so straight forward with very clear guidelines about upgrade options, seat sizes and leg room and luggage allowance. The easyJet app allows you to check in online, saving time queuing and also enables you to purchase extras such as food, car hire and transfers.
The app allows you to download your boarding passes and then you scan them going through security and when purchasing any duty free items. We found this to be time saving and also extremely convenient.
Staff throughout the process were friendly, happy to help and clear about boarding/disembarking with the new social distancing measures. We found the easyJet flight to be clean, seat size was adequate for our needs and it wasn’t an issue not having tv/radio through our short 4 hour flight.
There was a choice of hold/cold meals snacks and beverages and several trolley runs during the flight.
On arrival, our luggage arrived very quickly and easyJet ground staff were happy to help with queries despite us not being on an easyJet package holiday. We would definitely consider booking an easyJet package on our next trip.
