Crete is being added to the low-cost network operated by Norwegian from Gatwick this summer.
The carrier’s fifth new European route from the UK this summer will see three flights a week run to Chania with fares starting at £29.90 one-way.
Norwegian will operate a 186-seat Boeing 737-800 on the route from April 28.
Europe’s third-largest budget airline is also increasing the number of flights from Gatwick to Corfu, Pula and Berlin this summer.
Corfu and Pula in Croatia will be served twice a week and the German capital will have 13 departures a week.
Chief commercial officer, Thomas Ramdahl, said: “We’re serious about offering more choice, flexibility and low-fares for our passengers.
“Crete is a fantastic addition to our growing UK route network which now serves more than 40 destinations non-stop.
“Travel patterns have changed and so Crete offers an attractive alternative for sun-seekers.
“With affordable fares from £29.90, we expect Brits to flock to the Greek island this summer with the added bonus of having free Wi-Fi on board our flights.”
The airline has added Manchester flights to Alicante, Malaga and Barcelona alongside a new route from Edinburgh to Barcelona starting in June.
A new service from Gatwick to Oakland-San Francisco will take off from May 12.
