EasyJet to open two new bases



EasyJet is to open two new bases in France, stationing two aircraft in both Nice and Toulouse to strengthen its French domestic and pan-European network.

The bases, easyJet's 21st and 22nd, will be operational by summer 2012. The airline already has aircraft stationed in Paris Orly, Charles de Gaulle and Lyon.

Following the opening of Nice and Toulouse, the airline said its regional and European routes would grow by 10.

Customer and revenue director Catherine Lynn said: "France is a strategic market for easyJet, where the airline - already the country's second largest - clearly has room to grow. Low cost penetration is only 24% - half the European average. This strategic investment will allow us to strengthen our position in one of Europe's key markets.

"By making travel easy and affordable for French passengers we've firmly established the easyJet brand in France.  With these two new bases in Nice and Toulouse we will offer more choice to our French leisure and business customers."
