The airline easyJet is expanding its flight offering from Vienna by adding five additional destinations to the upcoming winter flight schedule. Starting in November 2015, the airline will connect Vienna with Bristol (England) and thus offer a completely new destination from Vienna Airport. In the autumn of 2015 easyJet will also initiate flight service from Vienna to Manchester (England), Amsterdam (Netherlands), London Luton (England) and Berlin Schönefeld (Germany).
We are pleased with the expansion of the flight offering by easyJet featuring new destinations and flight connections from Vienna. Business and private travelers will thus have an even greater choice, which in turn strengthens Austria as a business and tourism location as well as the target regions, says Julian Jäger, Member of the Management Board of Flughafen Wien AG.
"Vienna is a very popular travel destination in Europe, states Thomas Haagensen, Managing Director of easyJet Germany. "For this reason, we are looking forward to the expansion of our flight offering from the Austrian capital to encompass five new destinations and to fly from Europe to Vienna. On balance, we will offer a total of eight routes from Vienna, which also includes important business travel destinations such as London as well as popular holiday destinations such as Amsterdam."
