easyJet: La Dolce Vita in seven chapters and Sirtaki in one lesson!


Geneva, 24 November 2011 - For Spring 2012, easyJet has decided to please lovers of la Dolce Vita and the Italian community, which has a strong presence in the Lake Geneva region, by opening two new routes to Catania and Venice. Looking towards the summer season, easyJet will also be offering a new route to Athens and will increase the number of its flights to Nice, at unbeatable prices! Bookings are already open!


Italy takes pride of place with seven destinations from Geneva

Every year, easyJet charters more than 2,280 flights and carries almost 290,000 people to one of the five Italian destinations it flies to from Geneva: Brindisi, Cagliari, Naples, Olbia and Rome. These routes, which are very popular with travellers from the Lake Geneva area, reflect the importance of the Italian community in the region and the strong appeal of the country.

With this in mind, easyJet has decided to open two new routes to Catania and Venice. "We pay great attention to satisfying all the communities present around our flight bases”, says Peter Voets, Marketing Director of easyJet for Switzerland. “Today that attention is focussed on Italy. We are particularly proud that in 2012 we are offering seven different destinations to that sunny land whose tourist appeal no longer needs demonstrating.”

The new Italian destinations served from Geneva are:

  • Geneva / Catania, from 18 April 2012
    Up to 2x a week: Wednesday and Sunday
    Price per trip from CHF 35.95 incl. taxes / Bookings start 24 November 2011
  • Geneva / Venice from 28 March 2012
    Up to 3x a week: Wednesday, Friday and Sunday
    Price per trip from CHF 29.95 incl. taxes / Reservations start 24 November 2011


A new route to Athens and more flights to Nice for better deals

easyJet will open a new route previously little served by the market:

  • Athens, from 19 April 2012 until 30 September 2012
    Up to 3x a week: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday
    Price per trip from CHF 35.95 incl. taxes / Bookings start 24 November 2011

This new destination should offer attractive new options for travellers in search of sun and sirtaki!

To meet ever-growing demand, easyJet is increasing the number of its flights on offer to Nice:

  • Geneva/Nice up to 5 times a day. Price per trip from CHF 29.95 incl. taxes / Bookings start 10 November 2011.
