EasyJet has increased it’s seat capacity to Spain and other European destinations from Gatwick and Manchester airports.
EasyJet, the UK’s low-cost carrier, has added extra seats on late-summer flights to Spain and a string of European destinations, from Gatwick and Manchester airports.
The budget airline has expanded its schedule for the rest of the holiday season as a result of bookings performing better than predicted.
From Gatwick, the carrier has created extra capacity on flights to Lanzarote, Palma de Mallorca, Malta, Kefalonia and Madeira in Portugal, with more seats added on flights to Lanzarote and Tenerife from Manchester.
The carrier is also flying 20 routes to Portugal and another 20 to mainland Spain from eight other UK airports.
“We know that this time of year is popular for many of our customers who want to extend their summer. We are pleased to be adding more seats on some of our customer’s favourite beach routes across the Balearics, Canary and Greek Islands, Spain and Portugal from Gatwick and Manchester,” said Ali Gayward, UK country manager.
Currently, the airline operates 277 routes from the UK to 94 destinations across 35 countries in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. This summer easyJet is operating 39 routes to nine Greek Islands – including Crete, Corfu, Kefalonia, Kos, Mykonos, Preveza and Rhodes – from eight airports.
The added flight timetable means of course that British expats wishing to visit friends and family now have more opportunities to fly back to the UK.
Most of Europe’s tourism big-hitters failed to go green in the government’s latest update of its traffic light system for international travel.
The Department for Transport (DfT) recently announced a review of its green, amber and red lists, with changes due to come into effect at 4am on 30 August.
Mainland Spain, Greece and Italy have all remained on the amber list in the latest reshuffle.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
