Last week saw easyJet celebrate the handling of five million passengers in 17 years at Birmingham Airport.

Such a milestone comes ahead of the airline officially opening up a base there next month with 16 routes on offer.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

easyJet launched operations from Birmingham Airport back in 2007, which is how they have been able to handle five million passengers in that time.

The opening of their new base next month will see three aircraft based there, with 16 new routes launching on March 18.

Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager had this to say on the milestone and the upcoming future:

“We are delighted to celebrate carrying over five million passengers from Birmingham as we prepare to open our new base next month and start flying customers to even more destinations in the UK, Europe and North Africa.”

“We remain focused on offering great value fares, convenient connections and more choice for our customers in the Midlands, and we can’t wait to welcome them onboard.”

Adding to this was Tom Screen, the Aviation Director at Birmingham Airport:

“With just 25 days to go until easyJet launch based operations at Birmingham Airport, it was a pleasure to present the five millionth easyJet passenger with their prize.”

“Reaching this milestone is a testament to the ever-strengthening relationship between Birmingham Airport and easyJet.”

All eyes will be on the base opening next month by the airline in terms of what performance will look like, as well as whether there is scope to grow this further in the future.
