Easyjet

remains the leading carrier at London Gatwick airport and confirms this for the French market. The low cost carrier will launch three weekly flights to Limoges on May 1 – Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. The flights will operate until October 27. Limoges airport will be the 23rd French airport to join the EasyJet network. Limoges is already connected to London Stansted by Ryanair.

Easyjet will also land in Rennes twice a week from May 2 to June 24, every Monday and Friday. Between June 25 and September 3, the company will increase to 5 weekly frequencies. Flights will take off every day except Wednesday and Sunday. After September 3, Easyjet will return to its two weekly frequencies. London Gatwick

will be connected to 16 French cities during this summer season.

This is a good development for passengers, especially business passengers. With the end of the pandemic, the South London hub has regained its status as an intercontinental airport. This summer season, Gatwick has routes to 30 intercontinental destinations.

New routes include Bangkok/Singapore (Scoot), Quebec and Montreal (Air Transat) and Islamabad (British Airways). The British national airline will reactivate its daily service to New York on May 28. Qatar Airways has also announced its return to Doha in June. While the new low-cost airline Norse Atlantic will soon announce the new long-haul routes it intends to open from Gatwick.

The reopening of the South Terminal, which took effect on March 27, comes at the right time. The terminal had been closed since March 2020, the beginning of the pandemic.
