EasyJet - 20 million passengers from Orly
Almost 10 years have passed since the first flight operated by the British airline, EasyJet, at Orly Airport in Paris. On 10 May 2002, EasyJet made the first flight from Paris airport to Geneva. A decade later, Orly's EasyJet air base counts 7 single-aisle Airbus aircraft and aims to transport over 3 million passengers to 2012. In 10 years of activity, EasyJet carried over 20 millions of passengers from Orly.
The low-cost airline did not say exactly when it crossed the threshold of 20 millions of passengers carried, but did mention that a quarter of the passengers on Orly are businessmen.
EasyJet currently operates to 20 destinations in Orly: Nice and Toulouse, Geneva, Athens, Berlin, Brindisi, Budapest, Dubrovnik, Faro, Milan - Linate, Mykonos, Naples, Olbia, Palermo, Pisa, Rome - Fiumicino and Venice, plus three summer races in Cagliari, Lamezia Terme and Rhodes.
EasyJet also operated from Otopeni for 4 years. But at 15 January, 2012 made the last take-off in Romania. The flights operated from the Bucharest airport were not profitable. Peter Voets said, in an angry tone, that the Romanians are saving everything and spending money on board the aircraft, which amounts to a low-cost company. I tend to blame him, but all this in another article.
