Winter sun seekers will soon have far more holiday destinations to choose from as low cost carriers Ryanair and EasyJet introduce new routes across Europe and beyond.
Twenty two new routes are being launched by EasyJet this winter with the emphasis being on winter sun holiday destinations, with Manchester to Marrakech one of the first to take off at the end of October.
Early November sees Gatwick to Porto, Luton to Tel Aviv and Liverpool to Fuerteventura take to the skies, closely followed by Luton to Sharm el Sheikh and Liverpool to Lanzarote.
By November 4th Gatwick to Agadir, Luton to Paphos and Stansted to Fuerteventura will have launched, with city break holiday destinations also benefitting as Edinburgh to Lyon and Manchester to Copenhagen and Munich are added to the schedule. These will be closely followed by flights from Gatwick to Hamburg in February 2010.
Passengers flying on Ryanair flights out of Glasgow Prestwick are also set to benefit with some great new winter holiday destinations added to their schedule. Flights to Alicante, Lanzarote, Palma (Majorca) and Gran Canaria will start by the end of October.
Prestwick airport is owned by Infratil and their chief commercial officer, Graeme Sweenie is delighted with the new holiday destinations, stating "With a new route to Ibiza due to start in March next year, extra flight to Faro, Malaga and Tenerife and our well-established routes to Girona and Reus, Glasgow Prestwick offers the widest choice and the lowest fares for winter sun bar none."
