easyJet launches three new Manchester routes
LOW cost airline easyJet has revealed three new routes next summer for business and leisure passengers travelling from Manchester.
The new services to Pisa, Marseille and Porto will mean easyJet will serve 38 destinations from Manchester, which will be fulfilled by the addition of a ninth aircraft to be based at the airport from next June.
Across the new routes the airline is expected to fly 2,000 passengers a week from the airport throughout next summer, operating twice a week to Marseille and Pisa and three times to Porto, Portugal’s second-biggest city.
Ali Gayward, commercial manager at easyJet, said: “The three completely new routes underline our commitment to both leisure and business passengers in the North West.
“Whether our customers want just a short hop to Marseille on the French Riviera or to soak up the charms offered by Pisa and Porto, we expect all our new routes to be popular. Our routes make it easy and affordable for business and leisure travellers to connect to a choice of summer destinations.”
Stephen Turner, aviation commercial director at Manchester Airports Group added: “By adding new routes, easyJet continue to offer popular destinations and the addition of Porto and Marseille are two brand new routes for Manchester Airport which is fantastic news.
“The extra capacity will help to accommodate our continually increasing passenger numbers and offer our passengers a wider choice of destination for summer 2015.”
