easyJet will operate 21 new routes this winter including four new destinations from London Gatwick Airport in the shape of Aqaba (Jordan), Rovaniemi (Finland), Warsaw (Poland) and Pau (France).
The new routes are likely to be operated with Airbus A320s or similar, and will provide over 800,000 additional seats across the entire easyJet network and the low-cost carrier will become the only UK carrier offering direct flights to Aqaba when it starts a once a week service from London Gatwick on 10 November.
easyJet will fly four times a week from London Gatwick to Warsaw, the same frequency to Pau in the Pyrenees and to Rovaniemi twice a week from 31 October
easyJet director for the UK, Sophie Dekkers said: “We’re pleased to be continuing to deliver an unrivalled network which, with today’s announcement sees four completely new destinations and 21 new routes on sale.
“Our new routes are making it easier and more affordable than ever for our customers to travel to a range of winter destinations.
“We expect our new destinations to be especially popular amongst customers – with a mixture of winter sun hot spots such as Aqaba, short city breaks such as Warsaw or a family Christmas favourite in Lapland, we are continuing to deliver a network of destinations which provide our customers with flexibility and choice, underlining our commitment to providing the destinations our customers want.”
