Budget airline easyJet has announced it will be increasing its services between London Gatwick and Copenhagen. The new service will see an additional early morning and evening departure added to its flight schedule.
The increased service will mean easyJet will fly to Copenhagen four times a day instead of three from the 24th May this year. “We are actively improving our product choice, flexibility, availability and quality to help our business passengers by offering early morning and evening flights seven days a week which are supplemented by two afternoon departures,” said Paul Simmons, easyJet’s UK director.
“Our flights to Copenhagen are available from as little as £29.99* and we deliver outstanding value with our regular fares proven to be cheaper in eight out of ten occasions and flexi fares nine out of ten, so it really does make business sense to fly easyJet,” he added.
The move is part of easyJet’s expansion plan which has also seen increased flight services between London Gatwick and Spilt, Dubrovnik and Nice. The airline has also begun offering flights to Moscow’s Domodedovo, despite the fact that the airline has yet to secure final permission for the route. Flights to Russia are set to start on the 18th March, but with permission still not granted, there is much debate as to whether the service will be able to go ahead or not.
In other news for easyJet, it was announced earlier today that the low-cost airline is the leading candidate to join the FTSE 100 on Wednesday. The news comes after the company was valued at £4 billion.
