easyJet adds Volos and Ancona routes from London Gatwick

easyJet has launched two new summer routes from London Gatwick Airport to Volos in Greece and to Ancona in Italy.

The twice weekly service to Volos is the only direct flight to the UK while the Ancona service will also operate twice a week.

Routes between London Gatwick and both new destinations took off for the first time on 27 June and utilise an Airbus A320 aircraft throughout the summer until 1 September 2018.

EasyJet UK country director, Sophie Dekkers said with the addition of two brand new destinations, the carrier is pleased to be “demonstrating the continuous growth of the easyJet network across the UK and Europe”.

“easyJet remains committed to providing easy and affordable connections to our customers in London and the south east by offering low fares, a convenient schedule and more choice when they travel,” she added.

Gatwick Airport head of airline relations, Stephen King said: “The UK’s only direct service to Volos, and twice-weekly flights to Ancona, are both very exciting additions to Gatwick’s extensive short-haul network for the summer.

“These stunning, untapped destinations are inspired choices for a summer break, and it’s fantastic that our passengers can now reach them direct from Gatwick.”

easyJet is the largest airline at Gatwick and operates 110 routes, both domestic and international. It has flown over 18 million passengers in FY 2017.
