Budget airline easyJet has launched a new service to the Greek island of Kefalonia, flying from London Gatwick Airport.
The new service to the largest of the Ionian Islands launched on 28 April, and will fly three times a week over the summer.
“We’re thrilled to have launched our new service from London Gatwick to Kefalonia,” said Paul Simmons, easyJet’s UK Director.
Fares for the service start from £48.99 one-way, including all taxes, which brings the total number of easyJet flights to Greece to 11.
“With a strong start on bookings to date, we’re confident that it will be an extremely popular route with our customers from the UK and Greece alike,” added Mr Simmons.
“We carry one million passengers between Greece and the UK every year, so this additional route will provide them with even further choice.”
The airline expects to carry more than 15,000 passengers on the new service over the summer. So once you reach this gorgeous island, where should you visit?
Kefalonia has plenty of beaches to enjoy, but Myrtos Beach in the north west of the island is by far the most stunning.
This picturesque, sleepy village, on the west coast of the island, is surrounded by natural beauty on all sides.
As you might expect, Kefalonia has a vast and rugged landscape. There is no better example of this than Mount Aenos – the largest mountain on the island. Much of the surrounding area is a national park, which offers great views, challenging walks and a beautiful network of caves.
