LONDON (AFX) - easyJet PLC, Europe's second-largest no-frills airline, has announced plans to launch six new routes from its new base at Madrid's Barajas airport.

Two of the new routes are domestic, to Oviedo and La Coruna, while four are international, to Lyon and Toulouse in France, Rome in Italy and Casablanca in Morocco.

The new services will start February next year. easyJet will initially base three aircraft at Barajas.

With what aircraft are they going to operate the LYS to CIA flights? They don't have aircraft based in CIA and LYS do they?

Interesting new routes! I suppose they will announce more new routes shortly, as they will base 3 aircraft; these routes seem to be few for 3 aircraft.

Not surprised for the Lyon routes. I always considered Lyon to be the most underserved airport of Western Europe. It's one of the largest cities in France, but connections to the metropoles of Southern Europe (Rome, Madrid) were served by a couple of regional jets.

On their Spanish website they also mention a frequency increase to LGW SXF GVA MXP as a first phase of the base creation; the new destinations as a second phase.

Just a guess but as it has been announced with the MAD base, maybe MAD-Lyon-CIA or MAD-CIA-Lyon-CIA-MAD

Interesting to Casablanca as EZY's second African destination and I think EZY are Casablanca's first LCC

It could possibly mean that some existing flights to MAD will be converted to a MAD based aircraft. Similar to MXP, where 2 new daily LGW routes will be operated by MXP based aircraft alongside the two operated by LGW aircraft. However, there is nothing on the EZY website about the planned new routes, so as of yet we can't tell.

I wouldn't exactly call them "Moroccan" given that they are part of the TUI brand.

Though technically, they are moroccon as 60% of the shares is held by Moroccon institutions, where TUI AG holds the other 40%.

As I understand it, TUI owns 40% of the shares and provides the expertise and part of the tourist feed, however, as Joost mentionned, 60% of the shares are owned by moroccan companies, and the Company's headquartered in casablanca.

Cheers

At least he is born in Morocco, from http://www.eee-press.net/71/sp9.html
