easyJet route expansion

Now the UK’s largest airline easyJet has announced a further 10 new routes which it will launch as part of its summer 2014 schedule.
The new service will operate from its Belfast, Edinburgh, Gatwick, Glasgow and Newcastle bases to destinations across the UK and Europe.
There are four new additions to the Gatwick schedule with Jersey, Paris, and Newcastle strengthening easyJet’s business network out of the airport, plus flights to Brittany, a region of France popular with British holidaymakers.

Belfast International Airport gains Bordeaux and Jersey.  From Edinburgh, Bodrum (Turkey) and Heraklion (Crete) are added, whilst Glasgow gains both Kos (Greece) and Split (Croatia).  easyJet currently operates around 225 aircraft including easyJet Switzerland.

An anticipated route from Gatwick to Guernsey will not now take place, problems with the Guernsey runway not making it suitable for a planned Airbus A319 operation. 

This leaves Aurigny with a virtual monopoly on flights to London, the only alternative being a Jersey link with Blue Island to London City. www.easyjet.com
