easyJet today announced it would be expanding its operations from both London Luton and London Stansted Airports with the addition of two new routes. The daily service from Stansted to Oviedo Airport in Asturias will commence on Thursday 24th March, whilst the daily service from Luton to Grenoble will commence on Wednesday 20th April.
These new routes have been made possible by the transfer of the current daily Grenoble service from Stansted to Luton, allowing space in the schedule for the new Asturias service. Stansted passengers can still access the Rhone-Alps regions with the twice daily Lyon service, whilst Luton passengers now have a new exciting destination to choose from. The Stansted to Grenoble service will end on Tuesday 19th April and begin at Luton on Wednesday 20th April.
The province of Asturias is situated on the Bay of Biscay and surrounded by the Cordillera and Cantabrica mountain ranges. The region is renowned for its green landscapes, contrasting mountain peaks, stunning coastline with lovely beaches and colourful fishing villages. Throughout the towns of the region Romanesque and medieval sights can be found, whilst the Asturians also have a thriving cultural scene.
Grenoble is the gateway to the Alpine Crescent in the Rhone-Alps region and is a picturesque, lively and cosmopolitan city situated in a valley with panoramic views of the mountains.Ê The Capital of the Alps, it is renowned for its great food, festivals and accessibility for skiing and cycling. The city and surrounding area is also an important centre for technological developments and the Alpine Crescent region is France’s answer to Silicon Valley.
Fares to Asturias are available from £22.99 one way (£40.98 return including taxes) and fares to Grenoble are available from £17.99 one way (£33.73 return including taxes). Seats are on sale today at www.easyjet.com
