To mark Black History Month in the UK, some of easyJet’s black flying colleagues came together to celebrate and highlight the importance of this month to them, by operating an all-black crew flight.

The flights operated by the crew were EZY8861 from London Gatwick to Alicante and the return flight EZY8662 Alicante to London Gatwick, on Monday 26 October 2021.

Leading the crew was Captain Michelle de Graaf who has been with easyJet for 11 years and captain for over five years flying an Airbus A320. Captain Michelle trained with CAE on an integrated ATPL course.
