easyJet’s 15th route out of Glasgow, to Amsterdam, was launched with a cake. Hugh Aitken, easyJet’s commercial manager for Scotland, celebrated the new service with Amanda McMillan, Glasgow Airport’s managing director.

- easyJet’s new winter schedule includes two all-new routes, a route resumption after six years and a change of airport for two other routes. The all-new routes are between Geneva (GVA) and Bilbao (BIO), which operates three times weekly, and between Manchester (MAN) and Belfast International (BFS), which operates twice daily. Neither of these routes is currently operated by another carrier. After a gap of six years, easyJet is also re-launching daily flights between Glasgow (GLA) and Amsterdam (AMS), a route it served between August 2001 and the summer of 2005. Finally, the carrier is shifting its Lyon (LYS) and Paris Orly (ORY) flights from Rome Ciampino to Rome Fiumicino (FCO) with the start of the winter schedule. This marks the end of the carrier’s services at Rome’s smaller airport. This winter sees easyJet operating to 18 destinations from Rome Fiumicino and with the addition of Corfu next summer, the airline will serve 26 destinations in total from Italy’s busiest airport.
