EasyJet to fly non-stop to Lyon from Stockholm Arlanda

2016-07-01, kl. 16:44

The British low cost carrier easyJet is expanding its operations at Stockholm Arlanda Airport. During the winter of 2016, the airline will introduce a new destination from Stockholm Arlanda. Lyon, in the Rhône-Alpes region of southeastern France, offers not just a city escape but also proximity to some really popular ski resorts in the Alps.

“EasyJet is one of the largest airlines in Europe, and it is great that they are investing in Stockholm Arlanda by adding another route. We see high demand for non-stop service to Lyon among Swedes, for both business and leisure travel, especially during the ski season,” says Elizabeth Axtelius, Director of Aviation Business at Swedavia.

Lyon offers proximity to the Alps and popular ski resorts such as La Plagne, Les 2 Alpes and L’Alpe d’Huez. But the city is perhaps best known as the food mecca of France, and is also renowned for hosting the Bocuse d’Or, the most prestigious gastronomic competition in the world.   

“Lyon has a great deal to offer and, as the gastronomic capital of France, it attracts many Swedes who are interested in food and wine. It is also a cultural destination with well-preserved Roman heritage sites. Shortly after non-stop service from Stockholm Arlanda is launched, in early December, the delightful Fête des Lumières, or Festival of Lights, which is held each year, will draw visitors from across the world,” says Benoit Chollet, Director of Atout France, Scandinavia, Finland and Baltic Counties.

The Stockholm Arlanda-Lyon route debuts on Saturday, November 19. Service will be twice weekly, on Saturdays and Wednesdays.

Tickets can now be booked on EasyJet’s website.
