EASYJET has reached a landmark figure of 500 routes, following the launch of a new service from its base at Milan Malpensa Airport to Porto (Portugal). Founded by Stelios Haji-Ioannou (still the major shareholder) in 1995 with two wet-leased Boeing 737-200 aircraft it initially operated from Luton to Edinburgh and Glasgow. It is now established with 19 bases across 28 countries, and a fleet of 182 aircraft, predominately Airbus A320 series. The airline says it plans a 10% growth this year with a target of 50m passengers. easyJet’s latest route, a once a day 30 minute hop between Liverpool and the Isle of Man, has caused established airline Flybe (4 times daily Q400) to jump around somewhat. www.easjet.com
