easyJet’s inaugural Berlin Tegel to Aarhus service turned heads with this spectacular low-light water salute on 1 September. The route is one of five being launched this week, of which three have no competitors according to OAG Schedules Analyser. This is easyJet’s first-ever route to Aarhus, its only airport operation in Mainland Denmark.
- easyJet inaugurated five routes from bases at Berlin Tegel (TXL), Naples (NAP) and Venice Marco Polo (VCE) this week. The longest sector of the five, from Berlin to Granada (GRX), spans 2,160 kilometres, whilst the shortest, Naples to Palermo (PMO), is just 319 kilometres. The new batch of routes also resulted in a new airport joining the European LCC’s network, with Aarhus (AAR) in Denmark seeing the launch of flights from Tegel, with the Danish city becoming the carrier’s first airport operation in Mainland Denmark. Along with this service, the carrier will add flights from London Gatwick to Aarhus on 2 November. Of the five routes inaugurated this week, only two are poised to face direct competition according to OAG Schedules Analyser data.
