easyJet launches 22 routes in a week

I always wondered what I looked like when I peer out of an aircraft window…now I know! Solving this mystery were the passengers of easyJet’s first flight from Naples to Menorca on 28 June. The thrice-weekly service was also welcomed with this fabulous cake.

easyJet launches 22 routes in a week

Good job it wasn’t too windy on the apron at Gibraltar on 3 July, or else the passengers on the first easyJet flight from Manchester may have received a welcome they were not expecting. The route will be flown twice-weekly and will face direct competition from Monarch Airlines.

  • easyJet has used the last seven days to commence 22 new services from 12 of its bases in France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland and the UK to 11 destinations in Croatia, France, Gibraltar, Greece, Italy and Spain. The longest sector distance of the 22 routes was the city pair from Manchester (MAN) to Gibraltar (GIB), at 1,926 kilometres, while the shortest was the 476-kilometre link from the French city of Lyon (LYS) to Pisa (PSA). The average sector length of the 22 new services is 1,098 kilometres, while the average weekly frequency is 2.13. Only nine of the new routes will face any incumbents, with the most competitive being the Naples (NAP) to Cagliari (CAG) link, which has nine weekly services from Meridiana (seven) and Volotea (two). See how Gibraltar Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
