“These actions will continue on a rolling basis for the foreseeable future and could result in the grounding of the majority of the easyJet fleet.

“EasyJet will continue to operate rescue flights for short periods where we can, in order to repatriate customers.”

Yesterday routes to Morocco were cancelled. In a statement the airline said: “Moroccan authorities have implemented strict travel restrictions and, as a result, easyJet will cancel all flights between France, Germany, Switzerland and Morocco. We are currently planning some new flights to help people return home – please bear with us.

“As soon as these flights have been scheduled, we will update them here. You will also be able to re-book onto these flights via Manage bookings as soon as they are available.”

The airline will be getting those in the country home, but outgoing flights are cancelled.

The same is true of Spain, Italy and Israel.

EasyJet said of Spain: “We will be operating our normal schedule on Sunday 15 and Monday 16 March to try and allow as many people as possible to return home.

However, flights from 17 March until 29 March will be cancelled and only a number of rescue flights will operate.”

EasyJet has “cancelled a number of flights” to and from Italy.

For travellers hoping to go to Israel, the airline has warned: “Following an Israeli Government travel restrictions update, easyJet has been advised that passengers who have travelled internationally and who are not Israeli citizens must prove they have a residential address and phone number where they can self-isolate for 14 days in order to be admitted to the country. Israeli citizens will also be required to self-isolate on their return to Israel.

“As a result of this, we would advise passengers to ensure that they can meet these requirements in order to fly with us. easyJet’s flights to and from Israel continue to operate.”
