easyJet Rennes

Celebrations were had at Rennes Airport on 29 October as the French regional city welcomed easyJet’s inaugural service from Geneva.

Turin Airport easyJet

Turin Airport greeted easyJet’s first flight from Berlin Schönefeld on 28 October, one of five new routes which the LCC has launched from the German airport this week. It will offer three weekly flights on this city pair.

  • easyJet launched its W18/19 season schedule on 28 October by commencing 13 routes, while it added a further six new airport pairs to its network the following day. The airline’s biggest expansion comes from the German capital – Berlin – where the carrier has added five new routes from Berlin Schönefeld (SXF), with a further four added to its Berlin Tegel (TXL) network. The airline’s latest routes also involve the carrier’s return to Warsaw Chopin (WAW), an airport easyJet has not served since July 2009, with it linking the Polish capital with Basel (BSL), Geneva (GVA) and Tegel, while from next week it will begin flights to Chopin from London Gatwick. Of the 19 routes inaugurated by easyJet this week, seven will face direct competition, with one of the routes seeing two incumbents, that being on the airline’s new service between Manchester (MAN) and Lisbon (LIS), a route already connected by TAP Air Portugal 12 times weekly and Ryanair six times weekly.
