easyJet opens new Amsterdam base; launches sale of winter flights

EasyJet has opened its new base at Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam and has announced plans to add a fourth aircraft to its fleet at the airport from October 2015 onwards.

Carolyn McCall, CEO easyJet, said: “Opening a base at Schiphol is an important strategic move for easyJet. easyJet is already the second largest airline at Amsterdam – one of Europe’s leading airports serving a large and growing aviation market with strong passenger demand both to and from the Dutch capital.

“Schiphol was easyJet’s first destination outside of the UK back in 1996 and today we fly to and from London 108 times per week – a brilliant example of the strength of easyJet’s network and schedule.

“Basing aircraft at Schiphol allows us to offer more destinations for Dutch passengers – both business travellers flying to cities and leisure travellers flying holiday destinations.

The new base has enabled easyJet to introduce nine new destinations including Corfu, Dubrovnik, Hamburg, Ibiza, Nice, Olbia, Palermo, Toulouse, and Venice, bringing the total number of destinations from Amsterdam for the airline to 29. Earlier this week, the airline also announced that it will start flying from Amsterdam to Milan Linate airport.

EasyJet has also put its winter schedule on sale for 2015 with more than 78,000 flights set to take place to and from the UK between 25 October 2015 and 28 February 2016 providing 13,045,080 million seats.

Sophie Dekkers, easyJet’s UK Director, said: “We’re pleased to be putting winter 2015 on sale for our passengers today, allowing them to book early and take advantage of our lowest fares to the ski resorts as well as to the cities and beaches across Europe.”
