Air travellers in the south-east will be pleased to learn that low cost flyer Easyjet has agreed a new seven contract with Gatwick starting next month.
Easyjet and other low cost flyers have undoubtedly helped to lower the price of flying abroad and opened many new destinations by using smaller regional airports particularly in Europe.
On the back of this the airline is to add another five new routes taking the destinations available to more than 100. Indeed this deal will allow Easyjet to develope more routes with a known passenger fee in place and expect passenger numbers to increase by 5% this year, breaking the 2.5 million barrier.
The new routes will target the business flyer to Brussels, Charles de Gaulle, Jersey, Newcastle and Strasbourg using the slots purchased off Flybe.
