New flight route to ski hotspot
Grenoble is a favourite place to fly to for ski resorts in France. Now Scottish skiers and snowboarders have greater access to this ski destination airport thanks to the announcement of a new flight route. EasyJet has launched their new winter route from Edinburgh Airport to a French ski destination. The cheap flights company already has routes to two other ski destinations, Lyon and Geneva. The new Grenoble service will operate on Saturdays and Sundays until April 15. Hugh Aitken, EasyJet's commercial manager for Scotland, said the route was "a great addition to our winter portfolio and strengthens our position as Scotland's major ski airline". He added: "Current sales figures demonstrate that there is a real appetite amongst Scots to head off for a winter ski break." Thanks to Field's of View on Flickr for the header image.
