Today is Ascencion day, a bank holiday and also father’s day if you live in Germany. The bank holiday part does not make any real change to our current day to day life at this time of  confinement.

EasyJet just announced that planes will be able to take off again. The British airline announced that it intends to resume certain flights from 15 June, mainly on routes “within the United Kingdom and France”.
