SkyAlps has announced this week a new route, which will operate from Bolzano in the Alps to London Stansted Airport.
This represents a significant expansion from the carrier who have been working hard to connect the mountainous region with the rest of Europe.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
SkyAlps to Launch Bolzano-London Stansted Route…
This new route between Bolzano and London Stansted will begin on December 13, operating on a twice-weekly basis, being Wednesdays and Sundays.
The carrier will be using their Dash DHC 8-Q400s, which can sit 76 passengers in an all-economy layout.
Commenting on the new route was Josef Gostner, the President of SkyAlps:
“SkyAlps’ new London Stansted – Bolzano route will whisk passengers directly to the Dolomites.”
“Until now, those visiting South Tyrol have had to take lengthy, two hour-transfers from major airports such as Verona, Milan, Venice or Innsbruck.”
“The new route provides a quick and convenient solution for reaching the Dolomites, allowing travellers to maximise their time on the slopes.”
It is understood that this service will operate until April 14, 2024, so only on the seasonal winter basis.
Also adding to this new route celebration was Simon Gorrighan, London Stansted’s Aviation Director:
“This new route is great news for the airport and perfect for skiers who wish to visit this beautiful region of the Dolomites.”
“London Stansted offers more European destinations than any other UK airport flying to the finest ski areas across the continent, making it the perfect starting point for a wonderful skiing holiday.”
“Ryanair, Jet2, easyJet and Tui operate popular ski programs from Stansted. December marks the start of the season for any winter sport enthusiast, so with a host of ski connections on Stansted’s doorstep and snow starting to fall in some resorts already, it’s just a matter of deciding where, when and for how long you want to go.”
All eyes will be on how the new route performs, and whether there would be any scope to expand this further to year-round going into the future.
