EasyJet opens base in Barcelona
By:

BRITISH low-cost airline EasyJet has opened a new permanent base in Barcelona's El Prat airport, which it hopes will lead to an increase in passenger numbers of around 7% over 2016.

The carrier will now have three Airbus A320 crafts at its Barcelona headquarters, which will be its 27th in Europe.

Over the course of 2015, EasyJet transported 2.8 million passengers into and out of Barcelona, and hopes to increase this to 3.1 million over 2016 as a result of its newly-opened base in the Catalunya capital, plus its plans to run flights to Bourgogne, France, and Naples, Italy.

The Barcelona headquarters seems a logical step forward for the airline, which has been operating from El Prat for 20 years.

It will also create around 120 new jobs at the airport.

The first aircraft to take off from the new base was 'baptised', as is traditional, by being doused with hoses.
