Budget airline easyJet has announced it will offer new flights from Bristol Airport starting in October - and they start at just £26.49.
From Bristol to Stockholm, Sweden
Stockholm is Sweden’s capital city and flights with easyJet from Bristol Airport will begin on October 31.
The flights will run twice weekly on Mondays and Thursdays all year round. Fares will start at £26.49 each way and you will fly away on an A319 aircraft.
Stockholm is a stunning coastal city made up of 14 islands. It has more than 50 bridges and more green spaces than almost any other city in Europe.
From Bristol to Athens, Greece
The new flights to Athens – Greece’s capital city – will operate every Monday and Friday from November 6.
Prices start at £28.49 each way, and passengers will take off on an A320 aircraft.
Athens is a modern and bustling city, but history fans can rest safe in the knowledge it has 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.
“With these two new routes, easyJet now flies to 64 destinations across Europe and beyond from Bristol Airport.”
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.”
