easyJet has witnessed the inaugural flight of its new twice weekly service from London Luton Airport to Olbia, Sardinia.
With over 10,000 passengers expected to flock to the beautiful island of Sardinia using easyJet’s new flights each year, the services which depart on Wednesdays and Saturdays are likely to be a popular addition to easyJet’s schedule.
The route is easyJet’s third to Italy from London Luton Airport alongside the famous cities of Milan and Pisa.
Sardinia is famed for its mountainous landscape, emerald waters and beautiful Mediterranean beaches which make-up the ‘seven sisters’ or the seven main islands of its coastline.
Olbia in the north-east, boasts historical monuments such as the eighteenth century church of San Paolo and the Church of San Simplicio which is thought to have been built as early as the ninth century.
Just North of Olbia lies the Costa Smeralda and La Maddalena Archipelago, home of the Maddalena National Park and arguably the backdrop for some of the Mediterranean’s most breathtaking scenery.
Hugh Aitken, commercial manager, easyJet said: “We’re delighted to see this new service to Olbia take-off today. Olbia is the perfect destination for sun-seekers, water sports enthusiasts, history buffs and architecture fans alike.”
