EASYJET is to resume flights from Glasgow Airport on June 15.

The low-cost carrier announced that its initial schedule will involve domestic flights in the UK.

Further routes will be confirmed "over the coming weeks" as demand increases and coronavirus lockdown measures across Europe are relaxed, the airline said.

The only international route from the UK will be between Gatwick and the French resort of Nice.

As part of new safety and hygiene measures, passengers and crew will be required to wear masks in the airport and on aircraft.

There will be no food sold during flights, enhanced cleaning of planes and hand sanitiser made available to passengers.

EasyJet chief executive Johan Lundgren said: "I am really pleased that we will be returning to flying in the middle of June.

"These are small and carefully planned steps that we are taking to gradually resume operations.

"We will continue to closely monitor the situation across Europe so that, when more restrictions are lifted, the schedule will continue to build over time to match demand, while also ensuring we are operating efficiently and on routes that our customers want.

"The safety and wellbeing of our customers remains our highest priority, which is why we are implementing a number of measures to enhance safety at each part of the journey, from disinfecting the aircraft to requiring customers and crew to wear masks.

"These measures will remain in place for as long as is needed to ensure customers and crew are able to fly safely as the world continues to recover from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic."
