From 30 October 2022, easyJet moved its operation at Lisbon Airport to Terminal 1, providing a more convenient and quality experience for customers and further strengthening easyJet’s position at Lisbon which, combined with the increasing expansion of its network, marks the beginning of what will be a key winter season in Portugal with 4.8 million seats available, an increase of 51% compared to the pre-winter period.
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager said: “We are delighted to celebrate our 10th route taking off from Birmingham today, which is already proving popular for our customers travelling for leisure and business alike.
“Over the past year we’ve continued growing our operations at Birmingham, serving more customers and offering more connections to a greater range of destinations than ever before and, following our biggest ever summer at the airport, we remain focused on offering great value and more choice for our customers in the Midlands. I would like to thank our fantastic customers to choosing to fly with easyJet and we can’t wait to welcome more customers on board.”
Aviation director for Birmingham Airport, Tom Screen, said: “We are thrilled easyJet is expanding its offering from Birmingham Airport. Lisbon is a magnificent city which I know will be very popular with customers across the West Midlands region and beyond.”
The airline launched operations at Birmingham airport 15 years ago, flying its first customers from Birmingham to Geneva in 2007. Since then, easyJet has continued to return to Birmingham and in recent years established more services than ever before for those travelling for leisure and business alike.
