easyJet has announced the launch of a new route between Glasgow and Amsterdam, further adding to growth at the Scottish airport following last month’s announcement of a new route to Jersey.
Additionally, the carrier is now set to replace one of its four Glasgow-based aircraft with a 180-seat Airbus A320.
easyJet will also include an early morning flight on its Glasgow to London Gatwick route from 6 June, providing passengers with greater options on the busy Scotland–London routes. Additionally a fourth daily flight between Glasgow and London Gatwick will be available from this winter.
The new routes to Amsterdam and Jersey as well as the additional flights to London Gatwick plus investment in the A320, will increase easyJet’s capacity out of Glasgow by around 250,000 seats each year.
Hugh Aitken, easyJet’s commercial manager for Scotland, commented, “We are delighted to announce this new route for Glasgow. We have listened to customer feedback and there was a demand for Amsterdam as both a business and leisure destination. Amsterdam will be our 15th easyJet route from Glasgow and further demonstrates our commitment to the city and the region, by offering passengers a greater choice of destinations at affordable prices.”
