easyJet is adding a new route from Newcastle to Faro this winter.
The new service will commence on 1st November 2005, operating three times weekly (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays), increasing to daily for summer 2006. Fares will start from £24.99 one way.
Seats will be available to purchase from today.
Sue McClellan, Marketing Manager for Newcastle International Airport commented: “We have received many requests from people living in the North East and in Portugal for a low cost route linking these two areas. easyJet’s announcement today meets those needs and we are sure it will quickly become as popular as their other 14 routes from Newcastle.”
