easyJet’s 2015 summer schedule from Bristol Airport will include flights to four new destinations – Lanzarote, Catania, Porto and Gibraltar – keeping in line with the five year expansion plan the airline agreed with Bristol Airport last winter.
“We’re committed to making it even more easy and affordable for travellers across the South West to fly to great destinations, whether it be for leisure or business,” explained Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK commercial manager. “We’re constantly listening to the feedback from our customers and are confident that these new routes will prove popular with passengers.”
This secures easyJet’s position as the largest airline operating out of Bristol, flying to 50 destinations in total, with the new routes also meaning one additional aircraft will be based at the airport from 2015 onwards.
Kathryn Davis, head of tourism at Destination Bristol, remarked, “The announcement of additional flights provides further opportunities for in-bound tourists visiting the area. We are delighted that we will once again establish a route between Bristol and our twin city of Porto. This is an excellent way to celebrate 30 years of the partnership between the two cities and make Bristol more accessible to Portuguese visitors.”
