Basel EuroAirport’s Business Development Manager, Ingrid Sturzenegger, prepared a sweet send-off for the crew on easyJet’s inaugural flight to Santiago de Compostela in north-western Spain.
- easyJet added two routes to its network last week. On 31 October, the airline expanded offering from its Basel (BSL) base with twice-weekly flights to Santiago de Compostela (SCQ) in the north-western Spanish region of Galicia. On the following day, easyJet launched also twice-weekly services from Manchester (MAN) to Tel Aviv (TLV), turning the northern English city into the fourth (after Basel, Geneva and London Luton) airport across its European network to have a direct link to the Israeli airport. Jet2.com’s twice-weekly departures, launched in spring 2009, provide competition on the Manchester to Tel Aviv route.
