easyJet continues big expansion in Bristol with three additional new routes

Created: 10th Dec 2014

easyJet has today announced a further three new routes to its growing portfolio. From April and May next year, the airline will start flying to Bilbao, Isle of Man and Zante from Bristol Airport.

The announcement follows easyJet’s October announcement of four additional new routes to Gibraltar, Porto, Lanzarote and Catania. In total, easyJet will add seven new destinations to its Bristol operations next summer as part of its five year agreement with Bristol Airport for continued growth. 

The trio of new routes went on sale this morning at More than 47,000 passengers are expected to fly on the three new routes in summer next year, and more than 115,000 on the seven new routes combined.

Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Commercial Manager, said:

“We’re absolutely thrilled to add Bilbao, Isle of Man and Zante to our Bristol operations. Whether our customers want to marvel at Bilbao’s striking architecture, soak up the sun on Zante’s pristine beaches or wander the unspoilt hills and valleys on the Isle of Man, we’re confident that our new routes will be a popular choice.

“easyJet now flies to 53 destinations from Bristol – more than any other airline from the airport. We’re committed to making it easy and affordable for our customers to travel, and our growth at Bristol has made it simpler for people in the surrounding areas to fly directly into Europe’s top airports, with no need for stop-offs or additional fuss.”

Shaun Browne, Aviation Director Bristol Airport, said:

“These three new routes show the further commitment by easyJet to Bristol Airport. They are a welcome addition to the expanding route network and provide improved connectivity for business and leisure passengers in the South West and Wales region.”

As part of easyJet’s expansion at Bristol, a twelfth aircraft will be located at the base in summer 2015.
