easyJet’s six new routes are hot stuff

Giving the new easyJet Basel to Bristol route and this tasty-looking cake the thumbs-up were: Mario Eland, Marketing Director Basel Airport; Matthias Suhr, CEO Basel Airport; Ingrid Sturzenegger, Manager, Business Development Basel Airport; Stephan Schwertzig, easyJet Basel; and Mike Schwyn, Manager Airline Development Basel Airport.

Brrrrrrrrr! An ice-cold greeting was waiting for the passengers on the first easyJet flight from London Stansted to Reykjavik/Keflavik this week – in the form of this brilliant ice sculpture. The twice-weekly service began on 4 November.

“It was all edible – even the special black sugar for the ash,” said London Southend Business Development Manager Paul Haynes. easyJet UK Commercial Manager Neil Slaven and Stobart Aviation CEO Glyn Jones had to do the cutting of the volcano cake (above Haynes’ pay grade), which was apt as the new route from the London airport was to the Spanish volcanic island of Lanzarote.

  • easyJet has used the last seven days to start six new routes from six of its bases – including five from its UK bases. The average sector length of these routes is 1,883 kilometres – with the longest route being the 2,919-kilometre Belfast International (BFS) to Lanzarote (ACE) airport pair, while the shortest was the 848-kilometre link from Basel (BSL) to Bristol (BRS). The average weekly frequency of the new routes was 2.33.
