EasyJet considering Bristol – Tivat flights
Low cost carrier easyJet is looking into the possibility of launching services from Bristol to Tivat next year. The airline said that both Montenegro and Bulgaria are emerging holiday destinations which have managed to generate strong interest from its London bases, with simmilar results expected from Bristol. easyJet entered the Montenegrin market last year with seasonal flights from London Gatwick and Manchester to Tivat. The airline handled some 10.500 passengers between London and Tivat and a further 16.000 travellers between Manchester and the Montenegrin city last summer. The average cabin load factor on its Tivat flights stood at 89%. The airline says it will continue to develop its services from Bristol Airport, where it is the largest operator, despite posting a record half-year loss of 212 million pounds. Future flights to Montenegro are being considered as there is an increasing shift to new European destinations away from the traditional holiday hotspots, it noted.
