Easyjet’s expansion plans


The low cost carrier, Easyjet, have now expanded their routes.

Firstly, Easyjet have announced the launch of it's first ever service from Gatwick to Bergen- otherwise known as the ‘Gateway to the Fjords' in Norway and the 33rd country Easyjet now flies to. The new flights to Bergen will mean Easyjet now flies to two Scandinavian cities from four UK destinations (Bristol, Edinburgh, London Gatwick and Manchester).

Secondly, the low cost carrier has launched its first flight between Gatwick and Moscow. This is the first time the service will be available from Gatwick to Moscow, with an expected quarter of a million passengers flying on the route annually. Later this month, Easyjet will launch services between Manchester and Moscow, bringing in a predicted 60,000 passengers on the first direct scheduled link.

Quickly expanding routes! What does this mean for the low cost industry? Will others be following in their footsteps? Will this bring in the number of passengers and hopefully profit as expected? Lets us know what you think.
