easyJet grows Amsterdam base with six new European departures

easyJet is launching six new routes from Amsterdam alongside some additional frequencies.

In total, easyJet will now connect passengers in the Netherlands to 25 destinations with the new routes complementing easyJet’s existing schedule by strengthening city-to-city connections as well as introducing new destinations.

easyJet is increasing the links between the UK and the Netherlands as it will be offering 154 flights each way per week between the two countries – with 108 each way between Amsterdam and London each week.

This equates to around 15 flights per day with the introduction of an additional daily flight between Amsterdam and London Gatwick and two extra frequencies a week to and from Bristol.

Four new predominantly business destinations will provide Dutch businesses with access to lower fares.


Business passengers also benefit from additional frequencies on popular routes to Basel, Berlin, Bordeaux, Bristol and London.

The creation of an Amsterdam base has also allowed easyJet to provide a new daily early morning departure to Geneva, in addition to the existing early slot to London Gatwick.

easyJet transports more than one million business passengers to and from Amsterdam each year.

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol will become home to three easyJet Airbus A320 aircraft, increasing the capacity on routes that are now served with the A319.

The first two aircraft to be stationed in the Netherlands will land at the end of March and a third in May.

William Vet, easyJet commercial manager for the Netherlands, said: “easyJet will bring a balanced and mature offering to the Netherlands.

“This will grow in line with our passenger needs. Basing three aircraft in the Netherlands will bring more choice for Dutch passengers and lower fares.

“It will also help boost local tourism and economic growth with the creation of hundreds of jobs and increased passenger numbers.”
