The inaugural flight between Gatwick and Athens takes off today, marking the latest addition to the easyJet network.
The daily flight in each direction is in addition to the existing twice-daily service between London Luton and Athens. The launch of this new route will offer greater flexibility and choice for those passengers who find Gatwick a more convenient airport. The airline is now a major player at Gatwick, the new Athens service forming the ninth easyJet destination on offer from the airport.
To celebrate the start of the new service, easyJet staff will be at Gatwick airport today, handing out drinks and snacks to those passengers booked onto the inaugural flight, and offering entertainment in the form of a fancy dress competition!
