Beginning in summer 2014 easyJet will add a further 10 new routes from its London Gatwick, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle and Belfast bases to destinations across the UK and Europe.
These new routes will mean almost one million available extra seats compared with 2013’s summer schedule.
There are four new additions to London Gatwick’s schedule with Jersey, Paris, and Newcastle designed to strengthen the airline’s business network out of the airport. The London–Newcastle service will have 6 flights a week. Flights to Brittany, meanwhile, will add to the airline’s range of leisure destinations.
Further choice is also being offered from Belfast International Airport with flights to Bordeaux and Jersey. There are also four new routes launching in Scotland to both Heraklion and Bodrum from Edinburgh Airport as well as services to Split and Kos from Glasgow International Airport.
Cath Lynn, easyJet’s group commercial director, explained, “Adding even further choice for passengers throughout the UK at affordable prices is always our aim at easyJet. The new additions to the 2014 schedule will provide 36.6 million seats network wide on a greater choice of destinations spanning the UK, Europe and beyond. From Gatwick we have increased our already comprehensive range of destinations making even more business sense for corporate travellers to choose easyJet.”
The full run down and frequencies of the ten new 2014 routes are: London Gatwick to Newcastle – flying year round, six days a week; Gatwick to Brittany – flying summer 2014, three days a week; Gatwick to Paris – flying year round, seven days a week; Gatwick to Jersey – flying year round, seven days a week; Belfast International to Bordeaux – flying summer 2014, once a week; Belfast to Jersey – flying summer 2014, twice a week; Edinburgh to Heraklion – flying summer 2014, twice a week; Edinburgh to Bodrum – flying summer 2014, twice a week; Glasgow International to Split – flying summer 2014, twice a week; Glasgow to Kos – flying summer 2014, twice a week.
