easyJet Hamburg base route launches

The start of the winter season has seen easyJet base a third aircraft (an A320) at its relatively new Hamburg base. This has enabled the airline to launch six new routes to Amsterdam (3 November), Fuerteventura (5 November), Geneva (4 November), Krakow (4 November), Lanzarote (6 November) and Salzburg (3 November). This brings to 19 the number of destinations served by easyJet from Hamburg this winter.

On 29 October, easyJet launched a new twice-weekly service from its Rome Fiumicino base to Tenerife South. Passengers travelling on the first flight between Tenerife South and Rome were greeted by a giant pizza decorated with the colours of the Italian flag. Pictured are: master pizza chef Luca Anfossi; Santiago Yus Saenz de Cenzano, Airport Director; and Rosana Medina, Ground Operations Manager, easyJet.

  • easyJet has followed the launch last week of four new routes with the addition of nine further new airport pairs this week. Six of the airline’s designated bases receive additional services; Geneva (GVA), Glasgow (GLA), Hamburg (HAM), London Luton (LTN), Naples (NAP) and Rome Fiumicino (FCO). Weekly frequencies range between two and 11, while competition will be faced on four of the nine routes. The shortest of the new routes is between Hamburg and Amsterdam (AMS) at just 381 kilometres, while the longest sector is the 3,021-kilometre route from Rome to Tenerife South (TFS).
