Easyjet Atlantic flights?

A mysterious line has appeared on Easyjet’s online route map, which appears to suggest the carrier will be starting flights from Basel across the Atlantic.

An eagle-eyed reader posted the “news” on our forum this afternoon, and a quick look at easyjet.com does show a blue line (designating routes that are for sale but not yet operating) emanating from its Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg base out over the Atlantic.

However Easyjet’s booking engine does not list any such flights from Basel, and it would certainly be big news were the carrier to spread its wings into the long-haul market.

Businesstraveller.com will be contacting Easyjet to try and get get to the bottom of the thin blue line.

  • The new Easyjet Route is Definitely Basel to Düsseldorf. If you hover your mouse over the top of the map, the blue line appears on its own, if you click it, it takes you to the information page for Düsseldorf and given that Basel is the only destination served by Easyjet from Düsseldorf, that’s your answer.

  • Business Traveller update:

    We’ve just been contacted via the Easyjet Twitter page, and the link is indeed an error which the airline is in the process of fixing. A spokesperson for Easyjet also gave us the following statement:

    “We have no plans to operate transatlantic flights. The line on the map from Basel is an error and will be removed. We thank the eagle-eyed reader for bringing this to our attention.”
