The start of easyJet’s twice-weekly service to Thessaloniki on 29 June completes the 28 destinations ex-Hamburg for its S15 programme. In the centre of the picture, marking the occasion with the inaugural flight’s crew was Alexandra Ringel, Senior Manager Traffic Development & Sales for the German airport (Photo: Michael Penner).

This cheese and wine-themed cake, cut by Glasgow Airport’s Commercial Director Francois Bourienne, was used to celebrate the start of easyJet’s twice-weekly service to Bordeaux from the Scottish airport.

The first flight on the 724-kilometre sector from Geneva to Menorca was welcomed by this island-shaped cake on 27 June. The twice-weekly, A319-operated route will face no direct competition.

  • easyJet commenced 13 new routes over the past two weeks, operating 30 new weekly flights from nine airports to 12 other airports across Europe. Bases in Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Swizerland and the UK saw the start of flights to airports in Croatia, France, Greece, Italy and Spain. Of the 13 routes 10 were begun with a minimal twice-weekly frequency, and seven city pairs will see the LCC face direct competition, the most significant being the four airlines already operating on the Hamburg (HAM) to Heraklion (HER) sector. See how Menorca and Pula airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
