easyJet to introduce twice-daily flights to Zurich and Vienna this winter

Cheap flights carrier easyJet will launch twice-daily flights to Zurich and Vienna as part of its 2009/10 winter schedule.

As a result of increased demand, the airline has brought forward the launch of its winter timetable, which also includes the popular destinations of Geneva, Palma and Alicante.

Paul Simmons, easyJet’s UK regional general manager, said that people are looking to book flights to ski destinations and their Christmas holidays to "escape the doom and gloom of the credit crunch".

"We have also increased daily frequencies on some of our new routes from Gatwick because they have proved so popular with customers," he explained.

"Zurich and Vienna increase to twice daily whilst Munich becomes a three times a day service."

The carrier is increasing its number of cheap flights to Split, Dalaman, Bodrum, Mykonos, Montpellier and Toulouse from Gatwick from July 17th.

In order to accommodate demand for the flights, easyJet will base an additional aircraft at London Gatwick, taking its presence there to 39.
