EASYJET has announced flights will restart on June 15 – with all crew and passengers required to wear face masks.
It plans to restart domestic flights in Britain and France from 22 airports including Gatwick, Bristol, Birmingham, Liverpool, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Belfast as well as Inverness.
The airline said it is "introducing new measures to help ensure safety and wellbeing, including enhanced aircraft cleaning and disinfection and requirement for passengers and crew to wear masks".
There will be no food sold during flights.
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."
