easyJet has announced the opening of a base in Naples, its third in Italy and 24th in its European network, which will be operational from spring 2014.
The airline first started operations in Naples in 2000 and currently carries more passengers than any other airline into and out of Naples. In the last twelve months the airline has flown 1.6 million passengers. So from spring, having two aircraft based in Naples will enable easyJet to fly more than an additional 350,000 passengers taking annual passenger numbers to almost two million.
Mike Campbell, easyJet Europe director, commented, “Italy is a key market for easyJet where it has regularly invested and we are delighted to announce that Naples becomes our third Italian base and in Italy’s third largest city.”
easyJet will fly 20 routes from the base, five of which will be newly introduced in spring 2014, and will offer 130 flights a week at peak season from Naples. The airline will fly additional frequencies on key routes such as London Gatwick with two daily flights. easyJet is also now offering “Fast Track” security in Naples for its FLEXIfare customers, making travel even easier by saving time at the airport.
