easyJet has begun operating a twice weekly service between Glasgow and Milan Malpensa on Wednesdays and Saturdays which is expected to carry 26,000 passengers each year.
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s head of Scotland, explained, “As Scotland’s largest airline we are pleased to further strengthen our network with the launch of this new route to Milan Malpensa. Milan’s rich history, range of shops and extensive choice of restaurants are amongst the key attractions for visitors to Milan and we believe that this will prove a popular addition to our existing network.”
“Milan is a fantastic new addition to the wide range of European cities easyJet serves from Glasgow, and we are excited to be bringing this brand new route to our customers,” continued Paul White, business development manager at Glasgow Airport. “Milan and Glasgow have many things in common – as well as being economic powerhouses the two cities enjoy a fantastic reputation for being fashion capitals. Not only will this new route provide Scottish passengers with the opportunity to visit one of Europe’s top city-break destinations, it has huge potential to generate significant in-bound tourism for Glasgow and the West of Scotland. We have enjoyed tremendous success in strengthening our links with European cities this year, and look forward to working with easyJet to continue the airline’s growth at Glasgow Airport.”
easyJet already flies to Milan Malpensa from Edinburgh, London Gatwick and London Luton.
