easyJet introduces flexible services for Glasgow business travellers
Friday 1, April 2011
Low-fares airline easyJet has announced it is to improve flight times on its Glasgow-Gatwick service from June 6 when it will introduce a new 7am service.
The airline will further increase capacity on its London routes by introducing a fourth daily flight between Glasgow and Gatwick which will be available from this winter.
Hugh Aitken, easyJet’s commercial manager for Scotland, said: "Our flights between Scotland and London boast some of the highest percentages of business travellers across our entire network, so we wanted to thank Scottish customers for their loyalty by introducing these new and exciting products. In addition, passengers can avoid the hassle of Heathrow by choosing to fly to one of the three other London airports served by easyJet.”
Francois Bourienne, commercial director at Glasgow Airport, said: “This is great news from easyJet and I’m confident the early morning flight to Gatwick will prove extremely popular with members of the business community.
“The airline’s Glasgow to London routes are already well used by business travellers, and the addition later this year of the fourth daily flight to Gatwick will further strengthen Glasgow Airport’s connectivity with London.”
easyJet has also introduced 'Scotland Flex', a new flexible ticketing arrangement which gives passengers the freedom to fly back from any London airport to any Scottish airport.
Scotland Flex is just one of a range of convenient and cost-saving business offerings that aim to provide a welcome boost in business travel to and from Scotland – it will be available from April 5.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
