Blue Line On Easyjet Route Map, What's It Mean?

Tue Dec 05, 2006 1:21 am

Just wondering what the blue line (instead of the red/orange) line means on the online easyjet route map.

The reason I'm asking this is because I'm interested in the TLS-MAD route to be launched soon by Easyjet, but I am puzzled as it appears the route is only going to operate for 1 month???!!! Flights can only be booked from February 25th until March 24th 2007. Doesn't make much sense, as I don't see why they' launch a new daily service for only one month?? And on the route map, the MAD-TLS route is in blue.

If anybody knows what the blue line means, or indeed if you know what EZY's intentions are regarding the MAD-TLS route, please let me know.

Thanks!
Long live Aer Lingus!

Hi! The blue lines mean that it is a route that has not yet started (as you say yourself, it will start on 25th February. I think that at the moment all easyjet flights are only selling up to 24th March. This would be because the winter schedule is only confirmed up until that date at the moment. Probably towards the end of December they will start selling flights from March onwards.

Blue line means a route yet to be launched (sometimes inaccurate).

The reason that you cannot book this more than one month is that the Madrid base has not gone on sale yet for Summer 2007.

Thanks to both of you (Peterinlisbon and Runway23) for the reply. I was worried they were only launching this route for one month (which baffled me), and as I'll make good use of this particular route.
