The EasyJet route network from Bristol Airport is in such high demand that the low-cost airline have made the decision to base a 13th aircraft at the airport. Bristol has become EasyJet’s second larger UK centre after Luton airport and it currently accounts for nearly 4million of the airports 6.3million annual passengers.
It is just two years since a 12th EasyJet aircraft was agreed for Bristol, with a five year agreement signed between the two parties and now the 13th aircraft based at Easyjet’s Bristol operations will be in place from next year, allowing EasyJet to cater for the growing demand from passengers in the region hoping to fly to more and more destinations around the world.
EasyJet has recently added a whole host of new destinations to its list of flights out of Bristol, including Basel, Vienna, Bilbao, the Isle of Man and Lanzarote amongst others and the Basel and Vienna routes are particularly exciting as they are the first scheduled services to the destinations by EasyJet and are expected to carry as many as 78,000 passengers each year. Bristol’s EasyJet routes currently add up to 58 in total and the arrival of this 13th aircraft should ensure that all the new routes will be able to be managed and demand will be under control. It is an exciting time for EasyJet and Bristol, with EasyJet UK’s commercial manager, Ali Gayward, describing 2015 as ‘an impressive year of EasyJet in Bristol’ as well as confirming how much the airline are looking forward to welcoming many more South West customers aboard their flights in the future.
