More Scottish flights from easyJet

A new service from easyJet launched yesterday (May 30th), linking the Scottish city of Edinburgh with Dortmund in Germany.

The flights will operate four times a week, and one-way fares will start from just £24.99 (including taxes).

Low-cost carrier easyJet revealed that it expects 50,000 people to use the service in its first year of operation.

As well as being a lively city in its own right - principally famous for its beer and passion for football - Dortmund is also a major European crossroads with good links to the German autobahn system.

"We are delighted to launch this new route which once again demonstrates easyJet's commitment to serving our Scottish market," explained Katie Stitson, easyJet's Scottish marketing manager.

"Dortmund is a significant German city noted for its links to key transport hubs and its burgeoning reputation as a leading software and development producer.

"This route will not only provide further choice for holidaying Scots but increase revenue coming into Scotland through fantastic new business and tourism opportunities."

Earlier this week, links between Edinburgh and Europe were further improved when flyglobespan revealed it would offer services to Nice and Madeira.
