Special report: EasyJet keeps it simple with new Holidays launch

The expansions follows the relaunch of easyJet Holidays last month.

The operator said it is targeting more than one million package customers in its first year.

UK country director Neil Slaven said: “Operating from London Gatwick, Luton, Stansted and Southend means we already offer customers flying to and from London an extensive range of destinations conveniently served across the city.

“It is great to be able to add to that in offering them more choice and great value on existing favourite summer holiday destinations.

“The addition of these extra seats on some of the most popular routes is great news for those booking their summer holidays.”
