easyJet Europe was established on 18 July 2017 and started operations on 20 July 2017, with the first flight being an Airbus A320 (re-registered as OE-IVA, previously G-EZPA) flying from London Luton Airport to its new home base at Vienna Airport. easyJet Europe was made as a solution to mitigate the effects of Brexit, the UK referendum vote to leave the European Union. The parent company, easyJet, wanted to obtain an Air Operator's Certificate in another EU member state to protect itself against the potential consequences of the UK leaving the EU. The destinations remain the same as easyJet currently holds. To find out more about the affect of Brexit on your travel plans, please visit our page on flying after brexit.

Eastern Airways will no longer service passengers between the capital of Northern Ireland, Belfast, and the Isle of Man. This may also affect the airlines flights from Isle of Man to Glasgow and Newcastle, and the Belfast City to Newcastle service, which all operate on the same plane, which makes several stops. This is due to EasyJet starting flights on this route next year and Eastern Airways not sure if they can cope with the competition. The Belfast route has become infamous for airlines, Eastern only began operating the route, which originates in Newcastle, in September of last year following the liquidation of CityWing.
