easyJet launches Zurich service

easyJet haslaunched a new twice daily
service to Zurich, with fares from just £27.99 one way (£49.98 return). 

Many assume Zurich is just a ski gateway for accessing some of the most famous ski
resorts in the world such as Laax and Engelberg, but dashing straight off to the
slopes can mean missing out on this picturesque city also famed for its shopping and
festive markets.  Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland and a major contemporary
art centre, with the magnificent fine arts museum, Kunsthaus, which is home to the
large-scale Georgia O’Keeffe’s 74-painting collection. You can spend days exploring
the narrow alleyways of the old town, peeking into the tiny boutiques spread along
both sides of the Limmat River or experience the vibrant nightlife and traditional
cuisine as the rhythmic tunes of Oompha bands fill the night air. 

The airline
expects to carry more than 160,000 passengers on the route over the next 12 months.

Paul Cable, easyJet’s UK Market Manager, said:



“Zurich is not only a perfect ski gateway for reaching some of Europe’s top winter
sports resorts. With its quaint old town, world famous shops, cultural attractions
and a vibrant and sophisticated nightlife, this captivating city is also ideal for a
romantic getaway.”
