easyJet began weekly flights (Tuesdays) from Basel to Funchal on 6 December, heralded by this fabulous Madeira cake of course! The route faces no direct competition.
- easyJet has used the last seven days to commence five new routes from five different bases. While the average sector length of the five new city pairs is 1,468 kilometres, the shortest is the 945-kilometre link from London Luton (LTN) to Turin (TRN), with the longest being the 2,626-kilometre route from Basel (BSL) to Funchal (FNC). Interestingly, all five of the city pairs are flown on a weekly basis, with just one facing direct competition. See how Funchal Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
