The airline expects more new routes to be announced in the coming weeks.
easyJet: "easyJet continues to attract new customers because we offer the lowest fares to the most convenient airports. Despite the challenging economic conditions, we will grow 10% and will carry 50 million passengers this year on over 500 routes. The 70 new routes we will launch in the coming months will reinforce our position as Europe’s Number 1 air transport network,” Andy Harrison, CEO. Source: Etravel, 02-Feb-2010.
