easyJet has inaugurated its new route from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) to the Greek island of Zakynthos.
The service departs Liverpool each Thursday lunchtime throughout the summer and the airline is expected to fly 6,000 passengers between the destinations annually.
Mark Povall, director of air service development for Liverpool John Lennon Airport commented, ”Zakynthos is a great summer holiday destination and this new service now gives passengers from across the region the added convenience of being able to fly direct from their local airport. This new service will see increased numbers of passengers travelling from Liverpool in 2015 and a further growth in easyJet operations here.”
easyJet’s UK commercial manager Ali Gayward added, “We’re delighted to be adding Zakynthos to easyJet’s range of destinations from Liverpool. It’s really exciting to be here to see our first flight depart and highlights our commitment to providing affordable routes to summer destinations from Liverpool, which will also benefit inbound tourism to the city.
“Our Greek routes are proving extremely popular for those who wish to get some easy and affordable summer sun, and we’re sure that our new route and our 30th destination from Liverpool will be a success,” Gayward declared.
