“From the 30th of October, easyJet will move its operation to Terminal 1 of Lisbon Airport, reinforcing its role as the number 2 airline in the Portuguese capital”, highlighted the company, stating that the “decision, requested by ANA – Aeroportos de Portugal, offers all passengers greater comfort and makes the travel experience both easier and better”.

The carrier also said that as of October 30, “it will also start operating to new destinations revealed following the allocation of 18 daily slots at Lisbon airport, including Barcelona, ​​Toulouse, Zurich and Milan Bergamo”.

Busiest winter ever

“The strengthening of easyJet's position at Lisbon airport with the move to Terminal 1, as well as the growing expansion of its network, marks the beginning of what will be the busiest winter season in the company's history in Portugal, with 4, 8 million seats available, an increase of 51% compared to the pre-pandemic period”.

“This opportunity, combined with our recent expansion of operations in the Portuguese capital, provides a better travel experience, especially for passengers traveling on business and who, therefore, travel more frequently between European cities,” said José Lopes, Country Manager of easyJet Portugal.

In June, the European Commission allocated TAP's 18 daily slots at Lisbon airport to EasyJet.
