A new year-round service to the Italian city of Verona will take off this December as easyJet expands its destination choice at Edinburgh Airport.
The inaugural flight will depart Scotland’s busiest airport for Verona on 7 December, perfect for those looking for ski options this winter. It will operate on Tuesdays and Saturdays on an A320 aircraft.
It’s the airline’s 40th route from Edinburgh and comes just a few months after it reached the 50 million passenger milestone at Scotland’s busiest airport.
Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport said:“It’s great to see easyJet continue to grow at Edinburgh Airport by adding another new destination to its already extensive list, something that increases choice and flexibility for passengers.
“We know there’s a desire to travel and take in the sights and culture of other cities across the world and we are always working to build and grow our destinations list. We also look forward to welcoming people from Verona to Scotland and showcasing what our fantastic country has to offer.”
Neil Slaven, easyJet’s UK Country Director said:”We are really excited to have announced Scotland’s only direct winter connection from Edinburgh to Verona which will commence this December.
“We remain committed to expanding our network from Scotland and this is a particularly exciting addition to our base at Edinburgh. We are confident it will provide a popular addition to easyJet’s network.
“In total easyJet now serves 40 destinations from Edinburgh spanning the UK and Europe and this new route will complement our existing network of leisure and business flights.”
