EasyJet and Luton Airport

With British Airways CityFlyer (BACF) pulling out of the Santorini (JTR) route for this summer easyJet has quickly jumped in.

The Luton-based airline has announced a three times weekly service to the Greek Island this summer beginning 6 August operating Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Santorini, part of a group of small picturesque islands in the Aegean Sea, north of Crete, is famed for its spectacular views across the island owing to its volcanic towering cliffs – along which small villages spring out with whitewashed buildings.

With this additional summer destination, easyJet will now be operating over 40 routes during August including Alicante (15 flights a week), Mahon and Ibiza (10 flights a week each) this summer.    

On 1 July easyJet resumed flying from the airport, and is back to around 90% of its existing Luton route network including Corfu, Lanzarote Lisbon, Milan, Porto, Rhodes, Tel Aviv, Tenerife and Split.

Ali Gayward, UK Country Manager, easyJet said: “We are really pleased to announce another new destination from London Luton Airport. The beautiful island of Santorini is a great addition for those looking for a belated summer holiday.

“I know many people may have had to rearrange their summer holiday plans this year so it’s great that we can continue to expand what we offer and provide them a wide choice of summer holiday destinations this year.”
