new European flights

EasyJet will extend its European network this winter with the launch of 15 new flights across the continent.

The flights will provide links to a number of popular holiday destinations, with eight of the new connections operating from UK airports.

Liverpool airport will host new flights to Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, while London Luton will be linked to Sharm el Sheikh and Paphos.

EasyJet will extend its network from Gatwick with new flights to Porto and Hamburg, with a service from Stansted to Fuerteventura also being launched along with a route from Edinburgh to Lyon.

Andy Harrison, chief executive of the airline, said: 'We are delighted to be announcing even more new routes from the UK and across Europe.

'Times are tough for consumers, so we are proud to offer great year-round holiday opportunities in fantastic places such as Paphos, Fuerteventura and Sharm El Sheikh for incredibly low prices.'

EasyJet will also be offering a number of new services during the summer season this year, including flights to Athens, Corfu, Dalaman and Corsica from Manchester airport.
