easyJet has laid out its most ambitious route expansion yet, unveiling a staggering 60 new routes for this winter season and beyond.

This will include 33 routes launching from 11 UK airports, with flights taking off for the first time from this winter.

The new range of routes includes flights to Tromso in Norway and Strasbourg in France for the very first time.

Winter Awaits in Norway

For adventure enthusiasts seeking a unique winter experience, easyJet offers a thrilling new service to Tromso, Norway.

This enchanting city nestled within the Arctic Circle is renowned for its captivating displays of the Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights.

Twice-weekly flights will commence this November, departing from London Gatwick, Manchester, and Bristol.  

Broadening Horizons with New Destinations

The expansion will then extend beyond the winter season. easyJet will introduce a year-round route from London Gatwick to Strasbourg, a charming French city steeped in history and culture.

This addition further broadens the airline’s reach and caters to travelers seeking a quintessential European city break experience.

Furthermore, the expansion encompasses a range of new routes from London Luton, including Athens, Basel, and Djerba in Tunisia.

This caters to diverse travel preferences, offering a taste of Greek history, Swiss landscapes, or the sun-drenched beaches of Tunisia.

Regional Connectivity Across the UK

The planned expansion encompasses a significant investment in various airports across the country. Birmingham gains five new routes, including year-round services to the vibrant city of Prague and the allure of Marrakech.

Bristol benefits from new connections to the bustling city of Agadir and the historic city of Istanbul. Liverpool, Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Belfast International airports are not left behind.

These airports see an influx of new routes, offering both winter sun getaways and year-round city break options.

Travelers can now escape to the warmth of Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, or Marrakech.  Alternatively, explore the cultural delights of Prague, Berlin, or Malta, all with convenient connections from local airports.

Winter Ski Travel

For those planning a winter ski adventure, easyJet offers added convenience with the introduction of new routes during peak season.

Starting in January and February 2025, travelers can fly directly from Leeds to Geneva and Newcastle to Lyon. This eliminates the hassle of connecting flights and ensures a smoother journey to the slopes.

Additionally, Newcastle gains a year-round route to Paris, providing greater flexibility for travelers throughout the year.
