easyJet reaches new cheap flight route milestone

easyJet has announced that over 700 routes are on sale now at easyJet.com for the first time in the airline’s history.

The milestone has been reached with the addition of 19 new routes, due to start flying this autumn, across the easyJet network including nine new UK services.

These new routes will provide over 390,000 additional seats across the easyJet network, with over 144,000 of these being to and from the UK.

With the overwhelming popularity of easyJet’s current flights to Reykjavik, Iceland, the airline has launched two further routes to the capital.

Over 30,000 passengers are expected to use Ireland’s only direct scheduled flights from Belfast International airport alone which join easyJet’s current UK connections from Bristol, London Luton, Edinburgh and Manchester airports.

Reykjavik also becomes destination number 107 from London Gatwick – easyJet’s largest base.

There are three brand new easyJet destinations from London Luton to Naples in Italy, Basel - Switzerland’s third largest city - and Munich, the capital of Germany’s Bavaria region.

All three cities are key additions to the airline’s already comprehensive European flight network which will provide easy and affordable access for all whether travelling for business or leisure.

Sophie Dekkers, easyJet’s UK director said: “We constantly review our network to ensure we offer the best choice of flights at the right price for our customers and with more than 700 routes to choose from our customers will always be able to find somewhere new to explore.”
