A new route has been announced by easyJet between Edinburgh and Birmingham. The service will begin on 29 March 2020 and operate 13-times per week, with an anticipated passenger demand of around 180,000 per year.
According to reports by World Airline News easyJet will be operating its Airbus A320s on the Edinburgh-Birmingham route. This route will become the second easyJet route between Scotland and the Midlands. The first, also a 13-times-weekly service commencing on the same day, will operate between Glasgow and Birmingham.
With the announcement of these two new routes, easyJet is piling pressure on regional operator Flybe, who currently focuses on short-haul domestic flights within the UK.
