easyJet launches 17 routes

easyJet will launch 17 new routes over the coming week, connecting more of its bases across the UK with currently served destinations, as well as introducing wholly new destinations to its network.

Close to a million travellers are expected to travel on these new 17 routes over the next 12 months, from their local easyJet airports, contributing to the 41 million passengers the airline expects to carry in 2008. The most popular, up and coming new low-fare destinations for 2008 are Austria, Bulgaria and Madeira.

London Gatwick to Sofia, is proving to be particularly popular with second home owners and skiers, whilst the two routes to Madeira offer travellers the opportunity to grab some much needed winter sun.
