EasyJet flights are being made available to book with Princess Cruises to connect to sailings in the Mediterranean for next summer.

The deal with the budget carrier means that fly-cruise options are being made available from seven UK airports.

EasyJet flights will be offered from Bristol, Belfast, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Luton, Gatwick and Newcastle to feed selected cruises.

Princess Cruises UK and Europe vice-president Tony Roberts said: “By having easyJet flights added to our flight options customers can now have even greater choice when booking a fly cruise.

“These extra choices mean holidaymakers can fly from regional airports to join a Princess ship in the Mediterranean next summer.”
