Lisbon base for easyJet

easyJet is to open a base at Lisbon, but not until the winter season 2011.  Already the second largest airline in Portugal, the carrier will add to its 15 existing routes to connect the country’s capital city to up to ten new European leisure and business destinations.

The base, which will be the home for up to seven Airbus A319 aircraft, will be the airline’s 20th in Europe and enables further expansion, the development of new routes, and the provision of improved service to customers.

Carolyn McCall, easyJet’s Chief Executive, put the operation in perspective by noting that Lisbon already attracts 3.6m tourists and 4m business travellers a year.  She said that the airline hoped to contribute one million passengers per year. www.easyjet.com
