Last year easyJet announced that flights to Preveza in Greece and to the Greek island of Kos would join its Bristol network for the first time. The launch was postponed as a result of the covid-19 pandemic, and the routes have today been confirmed to launch to Kos from 29 March 2021 and to Preveza from 2 May 2021, with fares available at easyJet.com from £26.99.
Flights to both new destinations will operate twice a week throughout the summer, providing travellers from the South West with a direct connection to even more popular Greek resorts, joining existing easyJet routes from Bristol to Athens, Corfu, Crete, Kefalonia, Rhodes and Zakynthos.
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager said:
“In anticipation that demand for travel will return – and having recently seen signs of growing confidence by our customers in making plans for travel next spring and summer – we are delighted to confirm the launch of these new routes from Bristol next summer, providing even more choice for customers to book a trip to look forward to.
“Returning customer momentum is supported by the welcome news of the vaccination roll out, which will enable normal life to resume; including travelling again for work, to visit friends and family, or for a much-needed holiday.
“We are proud to be the largest airline at Bristol and remain committed to providing great value services to our customers by offering low fares, and more choice when they travel.”
Dave Lees, CEO, Bristol Airport said:
“We are delighted with easyJet’s exciting news introducing new routes to Preveza and Kos in Greece for summer 2021 from Bristol Airport. This decision extends the route network available to customers in the region and provides even greater opportunities for customers to fly from their local airport, reducing the need to travel to other airports outside of the region. The introduction of the test to release scheme when customers return to England possibly reducing the quarantine period, and the roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccination programme gives customers extra confidence to return to international travel. We will continue to work with easyJet, enhancing and developing the route network for the future.”
