EasyJet (UK) (easyJet.com) (London-Luton) is adding 19 new routes, due to start flying this autumn, across the EasyJet network including nine new UK services. These new routes will provide over 390,000 additional seats across the EasyJet network, with over 144,000 of these being to and from the UK.
With the overwhelming popularity of easyJet’s current flights to Reykjavik, Iceland, the airline has launched two further routes to the capital. Over 30,000 passengers are expected to use Ireland’s only direct scheduled flights from Belfast International airport alone which join easyJet’s current UK connections from Bristol, London Luton, Edinburgh and Manchester airports. Reykjavik also becomes destination number 107 from London Gatwick – easyJet’s largest base.
The brand new connection will launch from Belfast International on December 12, 2014 and will operate twice per week, throughout the year to the Icelandic capital of Reykjavik (via Keflavik).
The route will be operated using a 156 seater Airbus A319 and easyJet expects to carry around 30,000 passengers to Reykjavik during the first 12 months.
There are three brand new EasyJet destinations from London Luton to Naples in Italy, Basel – Switzerland’s third largest city – and Munich, the capital of Germany’s Bavaria region.
EasyJet will also offer the only direct connections from Aberdeen to Geneva, as well as flights from Glasgow to Marrakech and Edinburgh to Funchal.
Edinburgh to Funchal, Portugal is a year round service which will fly twice per week from 3 February 3, 2015.
Aberdeen to Geneva, Switzerland is a winter service operating weekly from December 13.
Glasgow to Marrakech, Morocco is a year round service operating twice per week from October 29.
In total EasyJet is now offering 33 destinations with over 2.3 million seats to and from Inverness, Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh Airports this winter – this is more than any other airline operating in Scotland.
EasyJet has already introduced four new routes to Scotland in 2014 including double daily connections between Inverness and London Gatwick and new links to Croatia and Greece from Glasgow.
