Press: easyJet to scrap Irish routes

Budget airline easyJet is poised to abandon three key Irish routes where it competes head-on with larger rival Ryanair, according to the Sunday Times. In a report citing industry sources, the paper said easyJet will drop its flights from Gatwick to Shannon, Knock and Cork, which it started only last year.

An easyJet spokesman told the paper that the routes were under review and that no decision had yet been made on their long-term future.
