For some time, travellers have been able to book easyJet flights that the search function on the company website showed as unavailable. Here is how you can do so too: On the easyJet homepage, search for a flight to your desired destination but specify a date that’s not too far into the future (e.g. next month). Then, to search for a flight on your desired dates (such as ten months from now), use the Year-view or 3-week-view tabs or the New Search button.
This information should be enough to help you book your flight, but in case it isn’t, a step-by-step explanation of this method follows below.
It is important to note that this is a perfectly legitimate way of booking your flight: you don’t have to click on suspicious links, download software or do anything unusual. You search, book, and pay on Easyjet.com, as you normally do.
Second note: This method is useful only for a few minutes/hours between the moment a flight schedule is released on the easyJet website and the moment flights can be found using the search form on the easyJet homepage. This delay is probably caused by an inconsistency in the company database or a caching mechanism, and I hope easyJet solves it soon. Until then, book away!
Step 2: Search for an existing flight on your route. Enter your desired route (such as London to Palma de Mallorca), but instead of entering your desired date (flights on which are not yet available on the homepage), enter a date closer to the present day (e.g., one of the last dates for which a flight is available on your route). You can search for either a return flight or a one-way flight. Click on the SHOW FLIGHTS button.
Option A. Navigate to the Year-view tab. Here you should find the best price of the month you are interested in. Click on it and choose your dates from the 3-week-view that opens.
Option B. Navigate to the 3-week-view tab. Use the blue arrows to navigate to your desired date.
Option C. Click on the NEW SEARCH button on top. Select your desired dates and click on the SHOW FLIGHTS button.
Step 4: Once you see your desired flights, book them fast, as many prices increase rapidly during the first minutes/hours after a release.
Step 5: I would be glad to hear your feedback after you use this tip! Feel free to leave a comment below or email us.
Update: some travellers report being able to book the flights with the EasyJet app, while they are still not present on the airline’s homepage. So, using their app may be another method!
