EasyJet's Luton-Istanbul Service - Discontinued?

Sun Jul 22, 2007 3:05 am

Can any easyJet insiders help me out???

I am looking at travelling to Istanbul in November or early December...

I have tried to book Luton to Istanbul with easyJet and this does not seem to be onsale for any departures after 27th October. As far as I am aware all of the airlines winter timetable is now on sale...

Can any one confirm if the airline intends to continue operating the route during the winter timetable.

easyJet have succesfully operated the service for about 2yrs and has no other LCC competition on the route. Has the route not been a success for the airline?

Some of our routes get discontinued in the winter. For example, at gatwick we discontinue Ibiza, Olbia, Palermo, and Split. Probably more but i can't remember

Quoting Christopherwoo (Reply 2):

The ones you mentioned are mostly holiday/seasonal routes. SAW is an all year around destination. I don't think EasyJet will give up SAW easily...

I was on that flight last november and it was packed. I would doubt Easyjet is going to stop the SAW flights. If anything they may increase frequency and I intend using it again soon too.
