easyJet opens its 30th base in Bordeaux

easyJet has opened its 30th base in Europe at Bordeaux Airport. France continues to be a central part of easyJet’s strategy and the decision is aimed to build on its leading #1 and #2 positions in key French airports.

Johan Lundgren, CEO of easyJet and Francois Bacchetta, easyJet’s France Director, celebrated this milestone in the airline’s French expansion plan during a ceremony attended by the President of Bordeaux Airport, Pascal Personne.

“I am very pleased to be here celebrating our new base in Bordeaux,” said Lundgren. “My priority is to help easyJet to continue to go from strength to strength and our expansion in France, our largest European market where one quarter of all easyJet passengers start or finish their journey, supported by today’s new base, entirely supports this aim.”

Bordeaux represents over 11% of the total operation of easyJet in France and the new base together with the expansion across the other French airports brings easyJet’s total capacity in France to 22 million seats, an increase of 6% versus 2017.
