With Montigo Resorts opening its doors in the heart of Somerset, Bristolians have found themselves with a precious gem in their back yard. This historic country house hotel and spa, with its serene gardens and upscale dining facilities, demonstrates the potential for unforgettable holidays right on Bristol’s doorstep.
But Bristolians’ horizons aren’t confined to local treasures alone. easyJet, a low-cost multinational carrier, has cemented its presence as Bristol’s largest airline over the past two decades. Since joining Bristol Airport, easyJet has evolved into a vital link connecting the city to the world and plays a crucial role in making international travel accessible for Bristolians.
Transforming Bristol’s travel scene
easyJet’s pivotal role in transforming Bristol’s travel landscape is due to a quarter-century of innovation and expansion. Founded in 1995 by Greek Cypriot entrepreneur Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, easyJet emerged as a trailblazer in low-cost aviation. Choosing Luton Airport as its launchpad, the airline quickly became a household name for Bristolians and Brits seeking global adventures.
This relationship between Bristol and easyJet has blossomed into an enduring partnership. As easyJet became the largest airline in Bristol, flying over 72 million passengers in two decades, its commitment to the city deepened. As of August 2023, easyJet propels Bristolians toward over 1,100 routes across 35 countries with a fleet of Airbus A320 narrow-bodies.
easyJet’s unparalleled services
easyJet’s legacy in Bristol goes beyond mere flights—it’s about delivering an unparalleled travel experience. easyJet’s all inclusive holidays transform the dream of stress-free holidays into reality. Popular destinations such as Morocco or Egypt have become readily available through the bundling of flights, accommodations, meals, drinks, and even activities into seamless packages. The airline’s dedication to ensuring each aspect of travel is meticulously curated means that Bristolian holidaygoers can indulge in their wanderlust without budgetary concerns or logistical headaches.
Additionally, easyJet’s extensive network connects Bristolians to a world of captivating destinations. From the vibrant streets of Spanish cities to Greece’s historical marvels, Turkey’s cultural richness, and the idyllic landscapes of Cyprus, the airline’s offerings cater to every kind of traveller. Bristolians can explore Amsterdam’s canals, savour Italian cuisine in Milan, or embrace the enchantment of Prague — all with the assurance of easy and stress-free travel.
Unveiling Bristol’s travel potential
The expansion of Bristol’s international routes resonates particularly vividly with Morocco World News reporting that easyJet will be linking Bristol with Marrakech in October. This new addition signifies more than just a route: it symbolises easyJet’s dedication to expanding Bristol’s global reach. The twice-weekly flights will seamlessly connect Bristolians with Marrakech’s enchanting landscapes, vibrant streets, and rich cultural tapestry.
While easyJet’s history and present services are remarkable, the airline remains firmly committed to a sustainable future. Collaborating with industry leaders like Rolls-Royce, easyJet is testing hydrogen aircraft and exploring eco-friendly alternatives. The airline’s CEO, Johan Lundgren, lauds the UK government’s green hydrogen commitment, underlining the importance of sustainable aviation ecosystems for Bristol and beyond. easyJet has since set a new goal to cut emissions by 35% by 2035.
From the historic charm of Montigo Resorts to the exotic allure of Marrakech, it’s become easier to close the gap between local retreats and far-flung escapades. Bristolians can eagerly anticipate an era of enriching experiences and cultural discoveries — each journey backed by easyJet’s convenience and assurance in every voyage.
