In recent months we seen easyJet start routes over Eastern Europe (Warsaw, Krakow, Budapest, Bratislava) a new route coming in shortly will be Cagliari from LTN, where can you see them going next?? I would like to see Vilnius/Kaunas in Lithunia, maybe Bourgas in Bulgaria, or even Croatia

Don't forget Ljubljana which they also serve.

They won't serve Bourgas until Bulgaria becomes a part of the EU. The same goes for those other countries currently outside the EU.

I should think that Croatia, Zagreb, Split or Dubronik or Pula, will be served sometime.

Strong rumours indicate a twice daily Basel to Vienna route starting in summer 05. So Vienna would be a new destination for easyJet then...

Hi Glenn

easyJet was just signing a contract with a large pharma company here in Basel. And Vienna was mentioned during the talks. Nothing confirmed yet though.

Nice weekend to you.

Some possible routes from NCL could be:

Ahh, NCL-BSL or EDI-BSL would be great. But it's not going to happen next summer (easy is basing 3 aircraft in BSL then). But it is an interesting possibility for aircraft number 4-6 in 2006.  Smile

RJ100, EDI-BSL is very doubtful...easyJet don't like the charges they get at BAA Scotland airports, so the European flights are limited to a daily AMS from both EDI and GLA

NCL-BSL could be possible if EZY base another 73G at NCL soon

EDI would be cool because there are a lot of tourists from the BSL region that visit EDI.

I see your point with the charges but who knows. Apparently they are also looking at Vienna although the fees are high there too.

But I keep my fingers crossed for NCL. I need more "pub flights" hehe Big grin

They should serve Helsinki as it is a good Market (from LTN/LGW/SXF)! But easyJet will only serve EU Airports + Swizerland ! So former Yougoslavia is exepted ... they won`t fly there! I doubt that they will fly into VIE as Bratislava is only some 50 km from Vienna City Center and you are quicker from BTS Airport than from VIE Airport to Vienna City Center!

Would Easyjet consider flying to the Canary Islands, like Tenerife or Lanzarote? They already have a big presence in Spain.

I dont think they are going to fly to Tenerife or Lanzarote. easyJet's bases are in central Europe and the Canary Islands are 4 hours away. But to operate low cost flights successfully you need to use your aircraft as much as possible. So they need at least 3-4 roundtrips a day per aircraft. And that is not possible with routes to/from the Canary Islands (and probably Finland as well). Plus, the Canary Islands already see a lot of charter flights from Central Europe. The big exception is Athens but I think they only fly all the way down to Athens because of Stelios.

I still don't know why they and others don't tap into the resort areas of the Middle East, N. African, and Turkish/Greek coasts.

Perhaps:

Agadir
Casablanca
Malta
Tunis
Monastir
Djerba
Alexandria
Cairo
Hurghada
Sharm
Marsa Alam
Taba
Antalya
Corfu
Rhodes
Mykonos
Split

Why not?

Go (for less experienced a.netters - BA's LCC that was brought out by the management and then taken over by easyJet) did fly from Stansted to Tenerife, but the route was dropped after one season due to very poor loads. It was operated at night, which may have been a reason why the service was not popular.

I think both Romania and Bulgaria will see Easyjet/Ryanair in 2007 when they join. I think Sofia would make a good easyjet destination and maybe Bucharest (baneasa).
Ryanair could look at Cluj or Timisoara (which is only a few hours from Belgrade and could attract people from there)

The problem with Romania and Bulgaria is that their are significantly poorer than the 10 new members of the EU. This could mean that a route like London - Varna was only profitable in the summer when there are UK tourists using it.

I'm sure we will see a rush of airlines fly to Croatia once they are allowed to. If the Croatian Government signs the open sky treaty before they join the EU it could happen soon. If not, expect Easyjet in around 2008/9.

I've always thought Thessaloniki would make a good Easyjet destination.

i assume you mean novartis. they have their generics business based in vienna, so it's important for them to have connections BSL-VIE, therefore this route would absolutely make sence

Exactly Matterhorn  Big grin

And they are only using easyJet if they fly into VIE with a twice daily service so that a same day return is possible.

And that would not be possible with a flight to Bratislava.
