Easyjet announced this morning that it will add three new destinations, one from each of Switzerland’s three main airports. The airline’s model, now used by many airlines, flies passengers directly to destinations rather than flying them into a hub airport first before flying them to their final stop, a model known as hub and spoke.
Geneva’s new Easyjet destination Pisa, will start on 1 February 2016. Basel’s new flight to Figari, in southern Corsica, France, will run during the summer high season from 11 June 2016 until 3 September. Starting on 27 March 2106, Easyjet will fly direct from Zurich to Hamburg.
The airline, which started in 1995 with the objective of making flying as affordable as a pair of jeans, carried more than 68 million passengers in the year to 30 September 2015 generating £4.7 billion of revenue – £69 per passenger.
