easyJet inaugurates its exclusive new destination from Bordeaux: Copenhagen (Denmark) for the 2022/2023 winter season
easyJet, the second largest airline in France and leading carrier in Europe is terms of network, is inaugurating its new Bordeaux - Copenhagen route today, for the 2022/2023 winter season.
easyJet is offering passengers from Bordeaux an exclusive opportunity to discover Copenhagen, Danish capital and emblem of Scandinavian “slow life”.
The airline with the orange logo has acquired new slots to Lisbon airport, where it has a base, enabling it to expand its offer from France to the Portuguese capital. Bordeaux Airport will benefit from this move, with added flights to Lisbon.
Reginald Otten, Deputy CEO for France at easyJet, commented that:
“With this exclusive new route, we’re offering a refreshingly different destination in Northern Europe. To further enhance the attractiveness of Bordeaux, we have also seized the opportunity to bolster our route to the more southern destination of Lisbon.
The demand for travel from the Nouvelle Aquitaine region is holding steady, with a marked trend for short-haul destinations at an affordable price. In the current economic context, our customers are more attentive than ever to value for money.”
Simon Dreschel, Chairman of the Board of Bordeaux Mérignac Airport SA:
“We’re delighted to welcome this new Bordeaux-Copenhagen route which will develop the connectivity of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region to Northern Europe. This appealing destination provides us with the opportunity to boost exchanges between Scandinavian countries and our region, and to develop a tourism target with high added value for Nouvelle-Aquitaine.”

easyJet, Europe’s leading airline and France’s number two in terms of network, offers the widest choice of routes to Europe’s main airports, with attractive fares and friendly service.
easyJet serves more European routes than any other airline company and carried more than 96 million passengers in 2019, including over 16 million business travellers. The easyJet fleet boasts more than 300 aircraft and operates around 1,000 routes to over 150 airports in 35 countries. More than 300 million Europeans live within one hour of an airport where easyJet operates.
easyJet is committed to being a responsible employer, with all employees signing local contracts across eight European countries. These contracts are fully compliant with national legislation and in collaboration with local trade unions. The airline supports numerous charities on a local level and also works with UNICEF to help children in need. Since its launch in 2012, the easyJet-UNICEF partnership has raised over €16 million in aid of underprivileged children.
Sustainable development is eayJet’s priority and the company joined the international “Race to Zero” campaign, in association with the United Nations, in November 2021. The airline recently published its roadmap for a zero-emission strategy by 2050, with a focus on the latest developments in aviation technology. easyJet’s long-term aim is to achieve zero carbon flights for its entire fleet, a goal it is working towards in partnership with Airbus, Rolls-Royce, GKN Aerospace, Cranfield Aerospace Solutions and Wright Electric. The road map combines the renewal of the fleet, enhanced operational efficiency, the modernisation of air space, sustainable aviation fuel and carbon removal technology. It also includes an interim aim to reduce the level of its carbon emissions by 35% for 2035. Since 2000, easyJet has already reduced its carbon footprint per passenger and per kilometre by a third, thanks to the ongoing renewal of its fleet, the efficiency of its operations and efforts to fill the majority of its seats.
Innovation has been a feature of easyJet’s DNA since its launch 25 years ago, and the airline has considerably shaken up the codes of air travel since then. We are industry drivers in terms of digital and web services, engineering and operational innovation, with an ongoing aim to make travel easier and more accessible for our passengers.
