easyJet has conducted its first flight between London Luton and Vienna as part of a new year-round twice-weekly service between the two destinations.
Including the new route to Vienna, the airline is expected to fly 5 million passengers from London Luton airport during 2015, an increase of half a million in the last year.
Neil Slaven, easyJet’s UK commercial manager, stated, “We are delighted to be celebrating another new route from London Luton Airport. With the addition of new affordable routes, we are catering for the demand from passengers in the region who wish to fly from the airport. The Austrian Capital will be a firm favourite for those looking for a city break with a strong emphasis on historic heritage.”
“This summer has been record breaking for the airport in terms of passenger numbers and it’s great to think that we will continue that success into the winter,” added Simon Harley, head of airline development, London Luton Airport. “The introduction of this new route to Vienna will help meet this growing demand from passengers. As the £110 million development of the airport continues, we will be adding even more destinations.”
