Bristol Airport announces two new routes to Stockholm and Athens

Stockholm, Sweden

easyJet have announced that it will start two new routes from Bristol Airport to Sweden’s capital city, Stockholm and the capital city of Greece, Athens later this year.

The new service to Stockholm will start on 31 October 2017, operating twice weekly on an A319 aircraft on Mondays and Thursdays year round with fares starting from £26.49* one-way.  Stockholm is a stunning coastal city made up of 14 islands, over 50 bridges and more green spaces than almost any other city in Europe.

The new route to Athens will operate every Monday and Friday on an A3320 aircraft from 6 November 2017 with fares starting from £28.49* one-way.  Athens is a modern and bustling city, yet charming and steeped in history with museums and monuments at every turn.

Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager, said: “We’re really pleased to announce these two new beautiful destinations to our network from Bristol Airport and we are confident they’ll be very popular with our passengers. Many people are already starting to plan ahead for their Winter holidays and with flights now on sale, they can take advantage of our low fares.

“With these two new routes, easyJet now flies to 64 destinations across Europe and beyond from Bristol Airport. It’s one of the biggest bases in our network and we’re committed to ensuring we continue to provide the best service and choice of destinations to our passengers in the South-West.”

Nigel Scott, Bristol Airport’s Business Development Director said: “The announcement of these two new routes by easyJet is very exciting news for Bristol Airport.  Athens and Stockholm are destinations our customers have frequently told us they would like to see served directly from the region, and their addition to our network increases the number of European capital cities we serve to 18 – the largest number in the airport’s 60-year history.

“These new routes will also support our ongoing efforts to grow inbound tourism to the South West and Wales, and we look forward to working with easyJet as well as our partners in the tourism industry to promote the fantastic attractions of the region to an even wider audience.”
