easyJet launches six of the best new routes

Beginning on 17 December, easyJet will connect Vienna with Amsterdam by operating four weekly flights on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays. “easyJet is one of the most renowned low-cost carriers in Europe, and we are very pleased about the new flight offering from Vienna including seven additional routes. Moreover, Berlin Schönefeld and Bristol represent two completely new destinations accessible from Vienna,” says Julian Jäger, Member of the Management Board of Vienna Airport, pictured on the right of the cake-cutting trio.

Tulips welcomed the outgoing passengers on the inaugural easyJet service from Lyon to Amsterdam on 17 December. The LCC launched three other new routes from its Dutch base during the same week – to Salzburg, Tenerife South and Vienna.

  • easyJet used the last week to start six additional services at three of its bases, Amsterdam (AMS), Naples (NAP) and London Luton (LTN). The average sector length of these six routes is 1,264 kilometres (up from 892 kilometres last week) – with the longest being the 3,220-kilometre city pair between Amsterdam and Tenerife South (TFS) (a week ago it was the 1,273-kilometre sector from Lyon to Belfast International), while the shortest was the 731-kilometre link from Amsterdam to Lyon (seven days ago the French airport featured again with the 724-kilometre service to London Southend). The average weekly frequency of the six new routes was 2.83, up from the 1.25 achieved by the LCC’s route launches last week. See how Lyon Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
