Easyjet expansion to slow as airports reach capacity

by TPN/Lusa, in News · 17-05-2018 14:47:00 · 0 Comments

EasyJet’s expansion in Portugal is going to slow down because of congestion at Lisbon and some lack of capacity at Porto, the company’s director in Portugal, José Lopes, said on Tuesday.

Some flights were diverted to Porto as Lisbon was full. Almost all airlines diverted to Porto, which meant that there is a lack of slots in the summer of 2018 [March to October], he said.
He added that these limitations at Porto should end next year after the airport manager improves the runway enabling capacity to increase once again.
José Lopes also said that decisions had to be taken to increase capacity at Lisbon airport before the secondary airport at Montijo comes on line in 2022.
Easyjet has nine aircraft based in Lisbon and flies 61 routes to nine European countries.
