2017-10-30, kl. 13:45
easyJet continues to expand at Stockholm Arlanda Airport at a rapid pace. Two new destinations are now being opened, Bristol (Great Britain) and Basel (Switzerland). With this launch, Swedish travellers will now have access to six direct routes with easyJet.
The focus on new European destinations with easyJet from Arlanda continues. Today, easyJet's new direct route between Arlanda and Bristol, in southwestern England, was opened. Bristol is a historic city with a modern pulse, from there you can explore the beaches of Devon and Cornwall, the picturesque Cotswolds and rugged coast of South Wales.
Tomorrow easyJet opens the new non-stop route to the city of culture, Basel in Switzerland. The new direct route also makes it easy for Swedish skiers to fly conveniently to the Alps while France’s Alsace region is just a half hour away by car.
“easyJet is one of Europe’s largest airlines. Their fast growth at Stockholm Arlanda is naturally very satisfying with now six non-stop routes from Stockholm. Obviously, that provides more options to Swedish travellers, but it also enables both tourists and business travellers to fly here conveniently,” said Elizabeth Axtelius, Aviation Business Director at Swedavia.
Javier Gandara, easyJet Country Director said: “We are delighted to be announcing a further route to our Swedish network today which we are sure will prove popular for travellers wanting to fly for both business and city leisure to two fantastic European cities. easyJet is committed to ensuring we continue to provide the best service and choice of destinations to our passengers across Europe and with this new flights, we can meet customer demands from both sides of the route.’’
Service launch October 31, with three weekly departures: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The route will be operated by an Airbus A320 with a flight time of 2 hours and 40 minutes.
