EasyJet to start domestic flights from new Madrid hub

25 August 2006

Low-cost airline EasyJet  stepped up the challenge to Spanish carriers like Iberia on Thursday by naming Madrid as a base for domestic flights and a hub for southern Europe.

The airline is already the second biggest international carrier to Spain behind Iberia, shuttling 7.5 million people there last year, and from mid-February 2007 it will operate domestic flights from Madrid’s Barajas airport.

EasyJet, which is recruiting new pilots and cabin crew for the Madrid operation, said it would announce new routes in September. It already flies from Madrid to five airports on the European mainland and four in Britain, and from 11 other Spanish airports.
