easyJet expands Liverpool options

easyJet is to welcome passengers on its inaugural flight from Liverpool to Lisbon in Portugal, giving the UK region’s travellers an even greater choice of destinations from their local airport.The four times weekly (Mon, Wed, Fri, Sat) service to Lisbon will offer affordable fares from £38.98 return (including taxes) and the airline expects to carry 43,000 passengers during the first 12 months of operation, all contributing towards the 41 million passengers that the airline expects to carry in 2008

Lisbon, situated on the north banks of the River Tagus, is a striking city of rich cultural heritage, renovated palaces, magnificent churches and an impressive castle.  Its eclectic blend of culture and architecture, with cobble stoned narrow streets full of Art Nouveau cafés, tempting restaurants, museums of ancient and modern art and the energetic nightlife in the Bairro Alto, makes it a truly fascinating city.
