easyJet carried 18.8 million passengers to and from France in 2017, with 1.7 million to and from Bordeaux.
The inauguration of seven new routes will bring the total number of destinations served by the “orange airline” from Bordeaux to 29, consolidating its position with 28% of the French market.
easyJet has operated in Bordeaux since 2006, and the opening of the Bordeaux base and the arrival of three aircraft this spring 2018 will bring the total capacity to nearly 22 million seats in France, including more than 2.2 million in Bordeaux, which is an increase of approximately 21%. These changes will mean an additional 400,000 seats during the summer period alone. The new base will also allow easyJet to recruit 110 staff in Bordeaux.
