easyJet, the UK-based European regional airline, has said that it will launch a new route from Bristol to Antalya in Turkey for summer.
The new flights will operate three times a week on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays throughout the summer, providing travellers from the South West with a direct route to the Turkish resort, alongside routes already operated to Dalaman and Bodrum.
Situated on the Turquoise Coast, the port city of Antalya presents several historic attractions and is known for its stunning blue waters.
Flights will take off from May 3, 2020, and the new service is expected to carry over 23,000 customers during its first season. Seats are now on sale at www.easyjet.com, with fares from £28.99.
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager commented, ‘We are delighted to confirm today that we will be launching a new route from Bristol to Antalya. As the largest airline at Bristol we’re focused on strengthening our network and providing our customers in the South West with excellent services by offering great value fares, a convenient schedule and more choice when they travel.’
Nigel Scott, Business Development Director, Bristol Airport said: ‘This is exciting news extending the number of easyJet destinations available from Bristol Airport and adding Antalya to the route network. The additional route demonstrates the long-term collaboration and joint growth strategy between easyJet and Bristol Airport. For customers in the South West it offers another sun destination and continues to increase the choice and flexibility of flights available to passengers in the region selecting to fly from their local airport.’
Antalya is the seventh new destination easyJet has added to its Bristol network in 2019. In October the airline launched a new route from Bristol to Hurghada in Egypt and earlier this year to Montpellier and Biarritz in France, Milan and Brindisi in Italy and Rhodes in the Greek Islands.
