easyJet, a British multinational low-cost airline group, has announced it will launch a new winter route between Bournemouth and Lyon in France.
These new scheduled flights will start on 13th January 2024 and will operate once a week on a Saturday until 24th February 2024. With flights already on sale starting from just £23.99, customers can book early and get the best fares.
Complementing easyJet’s existing winter route from Bournemouth to Geneva which started in December 2021, the new route to Lyon will offer customers in southern England another gateway to the Alps where the airport is a short journey away from popular ski resorts including Tignes, Val d’Isère, Alpe d’Huez, Les 2 Alpes, Val Thorens and La Plagne.
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager, said, “We are really pleased to be announcing a second winter route from Bournemouth to Lyon today, providing more choice for our customers in the South who are looking to visit the Alps region whether that’s for skiing and other winter sports, or a city break to enjoy Lyon’s impressive architecture, cuisine and history.
“With flights on sale today, now is a great time to book early to get the best fares and we can’t wait to welcome more customers.”
Steve Gill, managing director at Bournemouth Airport, said, “This is great news for passengers and offers them even more choice from their local airport. Winter routes are increasingly popular from Bournemouth and Lyon provides even more connectivity to the Alps this winter.”
On the confluence of the Rhône and Saône rivers, Lyon is the third-largest city in France and is also known for its world-renowned food and architecture, with its four historic districts listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
The new easyJet winter flight will enable travellers from the southern town of England to explore the incredible city life of Lyon.
