30.06.2017

Leave the big city and head for the sea! easyJet is expanding its network from the end of June to include the port cities of Bastia, Pula and Varna.

Head off to trendy destinations this summer. Ready for the start of summer, easyJet is expanding its network from Berlin Schönefeld Airport to three new tempting destinations! Passengers can now fly from Schönefeld to Bastia (Corsica) from 29 June and Pula (Croatia) from 30 June. Flights to Varna (Bulgaria) are already set to begin from 28 June. These additional routes mean passengers flying from Berlin are spoilt for choice with 48 different summer destinations. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, CEO of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH: "easyJet is continuing its expansion in Berlin. This clearly acknowledges the importance of our location. In the last 14 months, the carrier has stationed three new aircraft at Schönefeld, as well as adding eleven new destinations to its Berlin flight plan. With a total of 48 destinations, there is hardly a region in Europe that cannot be reached by flying easyJet from Berlin. As always, we wish the airline a safe and successful onward journey."

Dream beaches for big-city travellers, jobs for Berlin

Just in time for the summer months, easyJet is banking on fresh, new holiday destinations. The addition of its new entry points means the airline is continuing with its eclectic mix of popular business and leisure destinations throughout Europe. Thomas Haagensen, CEO of easyJet Germany: "We would like to provide our guests with a colourful choice of travel destinations, whilst continuing to extend our network. By adding another three aircraft to our fleet, which brings the total up to twelve, we’ve shown just how strongly our programme continues to grow." Not only will passengers, curious for adventure, benefit from the airline's renewed presence in the German capital, but also the region itself. The addition of the three new aircraft has led directly to the creation of over 100 new jobs.

Cool coves, festivals und port flair: the new destinations at a glance

With three new destinations, Berlin and Brandenburg residents alike can relax on Europe's dreamy coastlines. EasyJet now flies twice a week to the picturesque port city of Bastia in northern Corsica. Experience the true Mediterranean feeling with a coffee stop at Place Saint-Nicolas, amidst palm trees, baroque buildings and the port. The Croatian port city of Pula is serviced three times a week. Holiday mermaids can dip their fins into the turquoise-blue waters of dreamy, coastal coves. For those who wish to mix a beach holiday with cultural highlights, a detour to Pula's amphitheatre is worth a visit.

easyJet flies more of the most popular European routes than any other airline. Each year, more than 73 million passengers fly with easyJet, 12 million of which are business travellers. easyJet operates a fleet of more than 250 aircraft over 874 routes between more than 138 airports in over 31 countries. More than 300 million Europeans live less than an hour’s drive from an easyJet airport.

easyJet sees itself as a reliable, conscientious and sustainable company, which employs its workers in seven countries throughout Europe under local employment contracts that conform to the national regulations and recognise the importance of trade unions. The airline supports a number of local charities and maintains a partnership with UNICEF, which has collected over 8 million GBP for children in need since 2012.

easyJet rakes sustainability seriously. The airline invests in the latest technology, employs efficiency in all operations and flies with a high seat occupancy ratio. This means that an easyJet passenger generates 22 % less emissions than a passenger on a traditional airline on board the same type of aircraft, on the same route.
