With the introduction of the 2014-2015 winter timetable, from 26 October 2014 to 28 March 2015, EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg is increasing its flight offering to include ten new destinations, and most of the new scheduled services are being provided by low-fare airlines including easyJet, Wizz Air and, for the first time, Vueling.
Completely new for EuroAirport are flights to Bucharest with Wizz Air (twice weekly) and to Lanzarote with easyJet (also twice weekly).
For the first time during a winter season, easyJet will operate flights to Brindisi (twice weekly), Montpellier (three times weekly), Reykjavik (twice weekly) and Larnaca (twice weekly). The carrier will also be resuming flights to London Luton (six times weekly).
Also new this winter, Wizzair will operate two flights weekly to Cluj-Napoca in Romania and Ryanair will continue to fly to Dublin (three times weekly) and London Stansted (daily).
Over the Christmas period, Vueling – a completely new airline at EuroAirport – will offer additional flights to Barcelona and Rome and airberlin will fly to Lamezia Terme.
There will continue to be a wide selection of sunny winter destinations with weekly departures to Egypt (Hurghada), Morocco (Agadir, Marrakesh),Tunisia (Djerba) and Southern Europe including Spain (Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Majorca, Tenerife), Turkey (Antalya, Izmir) and the Cape Verde islands (Boa Vista, Sal).

EuroAirport’s management is expecting growth of around 10% for the whole of 2014 with passenger figures reaching almost 6.5 million.
