easyJet adds new Manchester-Jersey route

posted on 2nd May 2019 by Justin Burns

easyJet has announced a new year round twice-weekly service between Manchester and Jersey commencing 1 July 2019.

The low-cost carrier will operate an Airbus A320 aircraft on the route.

The addition of the new route comes after a significant year of growth for the easyJet network at Manchester Airport, with a total of 13 new routes being launched over the last 12 months.

easyJet now operates 65 routes and over 26,000 flights a year to and from Manchester – served by the addition of 5 extra new aircraft this summer.  The addition of the new route means easyJet customers will be able to enjoy direct flights to an even greater variety of destinations.

easyJet launched the very first flight to Jersey on 20 March 2008 from London Luton Airport and since then the airline’s services to and from the island have continued to grow.

Just 10 days after the Luton inauguration the airline launched direct flights from Liverpool and over the last decade has expanded its network offering, adding services between Glasgow (2011), London Southend (2012), Newcastle (2013) and London Gatwick and Belfast in 2014.

easyJet has also extended a winter service from Bristol Airport to Lyon Airport as will now operate it during the summer. The flights will commence on 1 July and will operate twice a week on Monday and Friday. They will be operated on an A320 aircraft.

The airline will also position its 17th aircraft at Bristol this summer as well as launching three brand new routes from the airport this July –  Milan and Brindisi in Italy and Biarritz in France.

easyJet now operates up to 770 flights a week from Bristol across 74 routes –  10% more flights compared to summer 2018.
