The new services will fly from easyJet’s four London airports – Gatwick, Luton, Stansted and Southend – to destinations in Russia, Spain and Greece, amongst others.
The airline announced its brand new service to Moscow last week, which will start in spring next year, and has launched a brand new service to Kalamata, in Greece. The airline has also expanded its services to the Greek island of Mykonos.
“Moscow and Kalamata are particularly exciting announcements as they are not currently part of our network,” said Paul Simmons, easyJet’s UK Director.
“easyJet has proved again and again that when we enter a new market we open it up to both leisure and business travellers by making access to these new destinations easy and affordable.”
A number of popular European cities will also be served by easyJet next year, including Santiago in Spain, Sofia, Berlin and Krakow.
There are also a couple of longer-haul easyJet routes to Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt and Marrakech, Morroco. Tickets for all the new flights went on sale on 1 November, and range from £22.99 one-way to £86.99 one-way.
Flights to Moscow and Kalamata, from Gatwick Airport, will start from £67.99 one-way and £34.99 one-way respectively.
Flights to Sharm el Sheikh and Marrakech both start from £86.99 one-way, from Stansted Airport. Flights to Krakow and Berlin, from London Southend, start from £22.99 one-way.
“easyJet has continued to attract a growing number of business passengers which currently total more than nine million annually. Destinations like Moscow from London-Gatwick and Berlin from London-Southend will further bolster our standing with them and ensure that they stay well connected to the key business centres in Europe,” added Mr Simmons.
“We fly to the destinations that our customers tell us they most want to visit so I’m sure that these new 10 routes across our London network will be a huge hit.”
