Six new routes are being added by easyJet from Luton airport for next summer.

Zakynthos, Larnaca, Fuertevenura, Gran Canaria, Marrakech and the Bulgarian beach destination of Varna are being introduced.

The budget carrier is also increasing the frequency of flights across 11 existing routes from Luton.  

EasyJet is also launching a promotion which sees 25,000 seats to holiday destinations across Europe on offer from £19.99 on selected routes for travel between July 1 and October 31 this summer.

The fare will be available from Luton to Malaga, Palma, Faro, Lisbon, Porto, Thessaloniki, Tenerife, Corfu, Heraklion, Milan, Rhodes, Reykjavik and Split.

The airline resumes flying from the airport on July 1, operating 90% of its existing Luton route network with more than 40 routes available, including Milan, Lisbon, Porto, Corfu, Rhodes, Tenerife, Lanzarote, Split, Tel Aviv and Reykjavik.       

Services to Rhodes, Heraklion, Thessaloniki, Tenerife, Krakow and Porto will all increase in summer 2021 to seven flights a week.

Capacity to Palma will rise by 30% to offer 28 flights a week while Milan will see a 50% increase from daily to triple daily, with 21 flights a week. 

UK country manager Ali Gayward said: “We are really looking forward to getting back into the air in a few weeks with 90% of our destinations on offer.

“The addition of six new summer routes and added flying on 11 existing ones from Luton next year will give our customers even more choice. 

“I know many in the region are keen for the resumption of flights this summer especially as many of our passengers may have had to rearrange their spring and early summer holiday plans this year.” 

Luton airport chief executive Alberto Martin said: “We’re working hard with easyJet to ensure staff and passengers remain safe as services resume.

“The announcement of more fantastic destinations in 2021 is great news for passengers and an exciting addition to the airport’s list of routes.”
