UK-based easyJet plans to further expand its Switzerland operations by adding new services, including up to 3X-weekly Basel-Warsaw (Poland) and 4X-weekly Geneva-Warsaw flights beginning Oct 28. The LCC also plans to launch 3X-weekly Geneva-Rennes (France) services from Oct. 29.

These destinations are in addition to the previously announced new winter routes of Basel-Berlin-Tegel (Germany) and Basel-La Palma (Canary Island).

Warsaw is a new easyJet destination across Europe, with connections to Berlin-Tegel and London-Gatwick.

EasyJet Group MD Thomas Haagensen said in a statement: “Warsaw is the 158th easyJet airport within its pan-European network.”

EasyJet Switzerland has 880 employees and transports more than 13 million passengers annually, becoming the second largest airline in Switzerland with a market share of 45% in Geneva and 59% in Basel.

The carrier operates 80 routes from Geneva, 67 routes from Basel and 10 routes from Zurich.
