Low-cost airline carrier EasyJet recently announced the launch of five new routes to and from Athens, Heraklion, Kos, Mykonos and Corfu for next year’s tourism season.
Three of the airline’s new routes will be launched in spring 2014: the Athens-Hamburg route will begin 2 April 2014 (every Wednesday and Sunday), the Heraklion-Edinburgh route as of 1 April 2014 (every Tuesday and Saturday) and the Kos-Glasgow route as of 5 April (every Tuesday and Saturday).
Easyjet will launch two more routes to Greece in summer 2014: Mykonos-Naples (as of 1 July 2014, every Tuesday and Friday) and Corfu-Naples (as of 2 July 2014, every Wednesday and Sunday).
Costs vary by route and start as low as 27 euros.
According to Easyjet, through these new destinations the airline will increase capacity by seven percent to two million seats.
In the last year, the airline has transfered 1.7 million passengers on 55 routes to/from Greece.
Today, it offers a network of 60 destinations to/from Greece and expects to carry some two million passengers in 2014 and contribute 2,000 job positions to the local tourism industry.
