Aqaba (Jordan), Pau Pyrénées (France), Rovaniemi (Finland) and Warsaw (Poland) are new destinations included among 21 new routes easyJet announced last week it would operate this winter.
The airline said the total schedule represents more than 800,000 additional seats across the entire network.
EasyJet becomes the only UK airline offering direct flights to Aqaba a short way from the border crossing to Eilat (Israel). The inaugural weekly flight will depart Gatwick on 10 November. The airline also announced it is connecting Warsaw for the first time with four flights a week from Gatwick.
On the purely-leisure front, Rovaniemi, the official home town of Santa Claus in Lapland, has been added this Christmas with flights on Wednesdays and Sundays from 31 October expected to carry more than 13,000 customers in its first winter.
EasyJet UK market director Sophie Dekkers said: “We're pleased to be continuing to deliver an unrivalled network which, with this announcement, sees four completely new destinations and 21 new routes on sale.
“We expect our new destinations to be especially popular with their mix of business opportunities and visitor attractions, underlining our commitment to providing the destinations our customers want.”
