The move is presumably a reaction to Air France-KLM’s effort to step up competition against the low-cost airlines and opened a base in Marseille earlier this month. “France is a strategic market for easyJet, where the airline – already the country’s second largest – clearly has room to grow,” said Catherine Lynn, easyJet’s customer and revenue director.
