Easyjet Launches New Routes From Bristol Airport

Tuesday, 30 March 2010

easyJet, the UK's largest airline, today (Tuesday 30th March) launched the first of four new routes from Bristol airport.

The airline continues to expand in the South West with its new Tenerife route taking flight on Tuesday.


This will be followed by Paphos in Cyprus on 14 April, its new Turkish route to Bodrum and Dalaman mid July and Heraklion in Crete on 17 July 2010.


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

Sophie Dekkers, UK commercial manager of easyJet, said: "Tenerife is famed for its year round sun and with flights from £35.99 running three days a week, we're making this more accessible for all.


"easyJet now offers a total of 42 routes from Bristol 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."

easyJet arrived at Bristol airport in 2001 initially operating five routes and has carried more than 21 million passengers to date. Now the airline has nine aircraft based at Bristol and carries over three million passengers a year, making easyJet the largest carrier at the airport.
