Easyjet Launch New Route From Liverpool Airport

Monday, 05 July 2010

Flights from Liverpool to Lyon will go on sale from Thursday 1st July with fares from £25.99 one-way (inc. taxes). The first flight is scheduled to fly on Saturday 18th December.

The airline expects more new routes to be announced later this year.

Ali Gayward, UK commercial manager of easyJet, says: "Lyon is both a popular winter and summer destination. And with flights from £25.99 one-way, we're making it even more accessible.

"easyJet now offers a total of 28 routes from Liverpool airport, and we plan to expand further from this key base to provide even more choice to travellers.  The secret to our success is offering the lowest fares, to the most convenient airports."

Lyon is characterised by classical French architecture, Renaissance-style buildings and outstanding cuisine, boasting delectable local specialities and quaint bistros. Day or night, this attractive city has much to offer and set in the Rhone Alps area is a gateway to many outstanding ski resorts.

easyJet arrived at Liverpool John Lennon Airport in October 1997 and now carries more than 2.4 million passengers from the base each year.
