EasyJet to rescue everyone during strike!
We told you about a large strike that was going to hit loads of flights, but there's a knight in shining armour on the way to help out you travellers!
EasyJet are going to run some 'rescue' flights and may well put some bigger planes in service on busy routes in a bid to counteract the strike by French air traffic controllers. The company had to cancel 248 flights on Wednesday and a further 340 flights on Thursday.
Even though there were no cancellations today, EasyJet said some passengers still needed flights. There are more flights affected in the next few weeks, notably another strike from April 16th and a further one from April 29th.
For passengers stranded in European cities (how awful), Easyjet put in five rescue flights today, with additional flights running from Luton to Paris, Paris to Barcelona, Barcelona to Luton, Gatwick to Madrid, and Marrakech to Gatwick.
"EasyJet recognises that there are a number of passengers across the network who have been affected by these cancellations and still require flights as soon as possible," a spokesman said. There's going to be extended hours at their call centres too, to try and help out passengers.
