Eos to add Stansted-Newark and Paris-JFK routes

All business-class carrier Eos Airlines has announced it will add two new routes
to its network next year. The airline says it will commence flights between
London Stansted and New York Newark in the spring, followed by a Paris-JFK route
next autumn.

Eos currently serves New York’s JFK airport from
Stansted with 44 weekly flights, but says that it will start flights to the
city’s Newark hub due to demand from “New Jersey-based premium travellers and
corporations”. Although schedules for the new route have yet to be disclosed it
is understood there will be 14 weekly flights on the new service, bringing the
total number of Eos flight between London and New York to 58 per
week.

The new route means Eos will join rivals Silverjet
in serving Newark, although the latter flies out of London Luton rather than
Stansted.

Meanwhile Eos says it will also commence flights
between Paris and New York JFK in the autumn of 2008. This will bring the
carrier into competition with French all-business class carrier L’Avion, which
currently flies to New York Newark from Paris Orly. Eos has yet to confirm which
Paris airport it will use for the new route.

The airline is due to purchase two further Boeing
757 aircraft, bringing its total fleet to eight, and says this will enable it to
introduce “as many as four new routes in 2008”.
