Easyjet, a UK-based airline company, is offering new services from London Gatwick Airport in the UK to Findel Airport, in Luxembourg, with flights to commence from October 29, 2012.
The airline is offering a four times weekly service from London to Luxembourg, giving competition to the two airlines that are already flying the route, British Airways, another UK-based airline, and Luxair, a Luxembourg-based airline company.
Luxembourg is a an important commercial centre in Europe, with a number of international companies, including Amazon, Paypal, Exxon Mobil and Skype, having their global headquarters based there, so a new connection to the city of Luxembourg from London will give business travellers more choice when flying on the route.
The airline also intends to increase the number of flights on the route in due course.
Paul Simmons, the airline’s UK director, said, ‘The launch of our new services to Luxembourg further bolsters our network of business destinations across Europe. Luxembourg is a key addition to the winter schedule which clearly demonstrates our commitment to providing a comprehensive range of key business routes, taking on the flag carriers, head on.’
The airline is also currently offering a new winter schedule, with the expansion of its services to Tel Aviv (Israel), Tallinn (Estonia), Turin (Italy), Amsterdam (The Netherlands), Geneva (Switzerkland), Venice (Italy), Isle of Man and Copenhagen (Denmark) from its UK airports.
The new route and expanded services mean that the airline is offering around 230,000 more seats. These new seats will be on sale from this week.
