Like other industry players, EasyJet has been overwhelmed by high demand in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The company has canceled thousands of its flights in recent weeks, many of them only on the day of departure.
Moreover, strikes at EasyJet cause problems. For example, the Spanish cabin crew announced between the end of June and the end of July in total nine days to strike, due to disputes about their wages and a limitation of flight times.
“I want to thank Peter for his hard work and wish him the best,” said Johan Lundgren, the airline’s CEO. “Everyone at EasyJet remains resolutely committed to ensuring safe and reliable operation this summer.” The airline says it will organize up to 1,700 flights daily and transport about 250,000 passengers.
