easyJet will welcome a record number of passengers on its flights over
the Easter holidays, with close to 700,000 passengers set to travel with easyJet across its
European network.Over 300,000 passengers will be flying on
routes out of London (Gatwick, Luton and Stansted), which represents a
19% increase in the number of passengers taking advantage of the
Spring break compared to last year.
The favourite hotspots for Brits are clearly the sun terraces of;
Alicante, Barcelona and Nice, whilst Geneva, Turin and Venice are also
particularly popular destinations for travellers who want to slip into
their ski boots one last time before the season ends.
easyJet’s Consumer PR Executive, Marianne West, said:
‘More people than ever are taking advantage of their Easter break this
year with close to 700,000 passengers jetting off across Europe with
easyJet. With the majority of passengers looking to soak up the sun or
hitting the slopes to make the most of the last snow of the season,
getting away from the unreliable English weather or DIY superstores,
seems to be the main objective.
