easyJet hopes the new routes will open up Europe and mid-haul destinations (Christopher Doyle)

easyJet to launch nine new routes this winter

24th April 2012

The low-budget carrier has announced nine new routes from the UK to city hubs across Europe and in Israel

Nine new flight routes have been added to easyJet's already impressive portfolio of destinations. Last week, the low-cost carrier announced additional winter routes as far as Tel Aviv.

Paul Simmons, easyJet’s UK Director commented on the announcement: “Our schedule has been increased across the network to ensure our passengers can visit the most popular city and sun destinations. I’m confident our addition of nine new routes further opens up the best European and mid-haul destinations making travel easy and affordable for all.”

Mancunians will be able to fly directly with easyJet to Tel Aviv, with prices starting from £82.99 (one-way, including taxes). From Gatwick, travellers can fly to the Isle of Man, Turin and Estonia's Tallinn from £32.99. Flights to Luxembourg will also be available from 29 October.

The newly re-opened airport at London Southend will launch easyJet flights to Geneva and Venice. Other routes include flights from Newcastle to Amsterdam; Bristol to  Copenhagen; and domestic routes connecting Birmingham and Belfast.

All new routes are already on sale. The new flights have added an impressive 230,000 seats to easyJet's 2012 winter schedule. The airline now operates more than 600 routes between 131 airports in 29 countries.
