Created: 30th Jun 2016
easyJet has today announced that it will start a new route from Bristol Airport to Turin later this year, meaning passengers in the South West and Wales now have an impressive 60 easyJet routes to choose from the airport.
The new route went on sale this morning at www.easyjet.com and will start on 11 December, flying every Sunday over the autumn and winter. Passengers can take advantage of low fares by booking early, with prices to the Northern Italian city starting from just £30.49* per person.
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Commercial Manager, said:
“This is an important milestone for easyJet and demonstrates how committed we are to providing our passengers in the South West and Wales with a vast selection of Europe’s best destinations on their doorstep. We have an unrivalled network with something for everyone whether you are travelling for business or leisure, on a city, ski or beach break.
“Turin is a beautiful city and one we’re very excited to start from Bristol Airport. Our flights will commence just in time for the ski season, so our passengers can take full advantage of the wealth of ski resorts in the Italian Alps or nearby French resorts, and will have easy access to some of Europe’s most popular ski destinations.
“For those visiting the main city area, it also has a wealth of history and is ideal for wandering around exploring the baroque-style streets. Of course, visitors will also be able to enjoy the incredible food that Italy is so renowned for and be able to stop at one of the many coffee shops where they can sit and watch the world go by. For those who enjoy shopping, Turin boasts one of the biggest markets in Europe – the Porta Palazzo Market – which hosts clothing and shoe stalls as well as fresh fish, meat and cheese stalls to name but a few.”
Shaun Browne, Bristol Airport’s Aviation Director said:
“We are delighted with easyJet’s announcement adding another European destination to their route network. It is exciting news to have reached such a major milestone offering 60 direct destinations available from Bristol Airport. We look forward to working with easyJet in the future on further developing the routes and flights available for passengers in the region.”
easyJet has also today put more flights on sale on its new route to Las Palmas in Gran Canaria, which the airline announced earlier this month. Flights to Las Palmas will take-off for the first time on 28 September, flying every Wednesday until November where it will now increase to twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays.
