Marina-OM, the trouble is that EZY is a point to point airline, so you wont be able to check in straight through to Toulouse. The two flights are treated as entirely separate, and you will have to disembark in LGW, collect any bags, go through Immigration and check in again for the LGW-TLS sector.

This means you will have to go landside.

The problem is that you are not in transit, you are taking two flights that happen to be with the same airline. You have bought two tickets. One ticket to fly to the UK [LGW], and the other ticket to fly to TLS from the UK.
In order to fly to TLS from LGW you have to officially enter the UK.

Exclamation

Officer may exercise discretion and allow you pass through the UK on your way to another country outside the Common Travel Area (the UK, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man and the Republic of Ireland collectively form a common travel area) without a visa providing that you:
  • arrive at a UK port on a ship and leave on the same ship within 24 hours; or
  • arrive and leave by air within 24 hours and have no intention of staying in the UK (you can travel by rail or road between two airports);
and
  • have a confirmed onward booking that will leave within 24 hours of your arrival in the UK.

can you guarantee that the immigration officer in the UK will excercise his discretion? If you cannot, and he doesn't, then easyjet would be liable for the cost of your deportation back to Helsinki... that's probably why they want you to have a UK visa to fly to the UK.

Easy - absolutely right: - Marina, for the sake of a few Euro's extra, fly through Paris.

It's not a proper thread to consider that, as I'll send you to the competitor. But try this (on Saturday).
Lappeenranta LPP 11:00 - Brussels CRL 13:10
Brussels CRL 15:30 - Carcassonne CCF 17:05

Look how short train ride is from CCF to Toulouse.

Unhappy

Announced earlier today on the intranet by the CEO that EZY will be stopping routes to Helsinki.

"On Helsinki there is an announcement about us stopping our routes through Finland. These are three routes. They are from Manchester, Gatwick and Charles de Gaulle. And these routes will be replaced and other routes will make us more money, and that's the reason we've stopped them. So, I'll give you more information about the new routes next week."

Does the CEO speak English?? I had a hard time understanding that... anyway, nice to see them going straight to the point! "other routes will make us more money"

It's from the transcript of the weekly call made to employees by the CEO. I think the poster also paraphrased some of it.

Strange decision from Easy to withdraw all routes from HEL.

First route to Helsinki in November 2008 was from Gatwick. In some days they even use 320 instead of 319 to carry all booked passengers.

After succeeding on LGW - HEL route, last spring Easy launched MAN and CDG . I believe, that MAN could be non-profitable route, but CDG has very good LF.

Rising airport fees, poor merchandising or simply bad ratio "long distance/low fares", any ideas?

Sad to hear this as Finland needs more low cost routes, not less. Strange as well, since Ryanair seem to be booming just up the road at Tampere.

I visit friends in Finland back in Summer 2009 and found this the more convenient option even though I was travelling to the Helsinki Metro Area. Timings and price couldn't be beat by Easyjet for the dates I wanted to travel. And altough it looks far on the map between the two cities, and theirs and air service between the two airports, it's not actually that long.

There's a good motorway connection and if I remember right, we done the trip in less than 2 hours. Nothing compared to some of the distances you have to travel for decent air connections in the North West of Ireland!

The flights may work now, but maybe they just do not want to compete with NAX when they start services from HEL. When they do, easyJet's yield would definitely decrease as NAX is a strong brand in Scandinavia than easyJet. That could explain that lack of easyJet services to the region.

My 2cents, 8R

Can anyone tell me where Easy's call center is located nowadays? Booked a business trip MAN-HAM for 4 days in July and every day since booking I have been calling them to ask for e mail confirmation as my empolyer will want to see this for expense purposes, they seemed to keep spelling my name wrong and e mail address too. Had to phone up and book as after 3 days of trying to book online didn't work due to various technical reasons in their booking system. Their staff can't seem to spell or understand me and I always make sure I speak much more clearly and slowly to forigen people on the phone.

Searched for customer service numbers on google and most I tried were dead, 0905 numbers. But 0871 got me through but I assume to eastern europe?

Anyway, problem solved now, after 8 days I have finally got my confirmation

They have an English language call centre in Poland? Why not India, problematic enough, where English is a second language? I have never struggled so much to be understood by anyone as I have struggled with the Polish.....
