Fraudulent EasyJet email

I’ve received a convincing promo to “Book your next trip” from this email address but with zero Covid information just pure promo.  I’m suspecting it’s fraudulent as EasyJet surely have no idea when things will recover.  But more to the point with all of their contact centres closed we can’t verify this? 

Does anyone recognise that email as congruent with previous valid  promotional material?

thanks

    I’ve only received one other email from this address and now the next one (today) is also personalised!

     "easyjet.com" is certainly owned by Easyjet, but of course email addresses can be spoofed.
    Open the properties of the email, see if it does genuinely come from easyjet.com.

     It just looks like a promo email to me offering holidays next year. As long as you don't click on link in the email I don't see the problem.

    Probably genuine.

    Have a similar email here.

    There's a link at the top right: 'View in browser'.

    Tapping/clicking on that (probably) takes you to a personalised webpage hosted at easyjet.com.  It did in the email I received.

    Edit to add: charge your phone!

    To check if any email is genuine or not "hover" your curser over the the name to reveal the true email address.
    I recently had an email from "Easyjet" to win two flights which when I checked it came from India. Clealy a scam

    LOL. Email addresses are VERY easily spoofed.
