easyJet has begun flights from Edinburgh to Venice and will add further service from Edinburgh with flights to Vienna beginning on 6 February.
The year-round service to Venice operates four times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, while that to Vienna, also year-round, will operate twice a week on Tuesdays and Saturdays before increasing to three services a week from summer 2016.
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s head of Scotland, commented, “easyJet is Scotland’s largest airline and now has an unrivalled network of over 50 routes served from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inverness.
“We are pleased to further strengthen our network from Edinburgh with the addition of these services and are confident that Venice will prove a popular destination for travellers due to the assortment of contemporary hotels and restaurants, accompanied by the vibrant café scene and enchanting architecture,” she added.
“We believe that the new Vienna route will prove a popular addition to our existing network with its magnificent historical architecture including the Grand Imperial Palaces, bombastic baroque interiors, range of art museums and the impressive Hofburg,” Gayward noted.
