EasyJet operates more than 150 flights a week between the UK and France, it said on Friday.

The news comes as easyJet updated shareholders to report it will continue to assess further funding opportunities after raising an extra £203.6 million from the sale and leaseback of aircraft, as the pandemic continues to wreak havoc on travel and its finances.

EasyJet has spent recent months strengthening its balance sheet after COVID-19 halted travel, and while flying has restarted, the pandemic is still causing restrictions with the UK adding France to its quarantine list on Thursday.

The airline said on Friday it had raised £608 million from a sale and leaseback plan for 23 aircraft, at the upper end of guidance for proceeds.

Easyjet operates extensive services from Leeds Bradford Airport.
