Easyjet to cut routes at Luton and closes East Midlands base

Post by Wouter on Thu 3 Sep 2009 - 13:49

I just read that Easyjet will close 1/5 of the Luton-routes and the base at East Midlands airport will be shut down. The planes probably will based on new bases in Europe.

Easyjets passengers amount grew 4.7% to 4.8 million in August 2009, and the load factor grew 0.5% to 91.5% (compared to August 2008)

EDIT: Ryanair launched a ú35 Easyjet rescue fare, following the closure of several Easyjet routes. http://www.ryanair.com/site/EN/news.php?yr=09&month=sep&story=gen-en-030909-2

It seems ryanair bail other airline passengers (sky europe and now easyjet) out in times of trouble and may i say it makes great business sense.. but when ryanair close a % of its flights others dont step in ... maybe they are not in a position to help... the future is looking brighter for ryan.
