The Luton-headquartered airline plans to expand Gatwick with increased flying to summer holiday destinations next year including Athens, Lanzarote, Malta and Naples from what is its largest base.
Recently easyJet added additional flying from Luton to a variety of summer destinations and a new route to Santorini (See BTN 27 July).
The airline will increase its services to Lanzarote from 10 flights a week to twice daily; Athens will now be served by an extra four weekly flights from 13 a week to 17 a week. Flights to Malta will increase by three flights a week and easyJet flights to Naples will increase from 14 a week to 18 a week with triple daily flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Next summer, services from Luton to Rhodes, Heraklion, Thessaloniki, Tenerife, Krakow and Porto will all increase to seven flights a week. EasyJet will also be adding extra services to Balearic favourite Palma in Majorca by 30%, now offering 28 flights a week from the airport. The airline is also increasing flights to Milan by over 50%, from daily to triple daily, with 21 flights a week to choose from.
