Easyjet announces Hamburg and Grenoble routes

Easyjet has announced two new routes from Bristol International Airport to Grenoble and Hamburg. The year-round service to Hamburg, starting on 1 December, will operate every day except Saturdays, while the three-times-weekly service to Grenoble will commence on 15 December and operate throughout the winter. The airline plans to carry almost 100,000 passengers on the Hamburg service in the first 12 months and the route is expected to be popular with both business and leisure travellers. Over 25,000 passengers are also expected to take advantage of the Grenoble route this winter due to its proximity to the ski slopes. Easyjet has more than doubled its capacity at Bristol in the last three years and now offers a choice of 24 routes. With over 200 departures every week, the airline carries over 2.6 million passengers every year from its southwest base. Easyjet market manager for Bristol Emma Curwood said: "We are pleased to bring even more low-cost services to the South West. These two new routes will bring more tourism to the area while providing the Bristol region with direct links to Germany and France, attracting both business and leisure passengers.“
