Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) is celebrating its first new route announcement of the year following today’s news that easyJet will be adding flights from Liverpool to the Greek island of Zante as part of their Summer 2015 programme from the Airport.

This new route takes the number of destinations served by easyJet from Liverpool in 2015 to 30, with Zante complimenting the airline’s mix of City and holiday destinations already on sale from Liverpool.

This Summer, the region’s holidaymakers can book flights with easyJet direct from Liverpool to popular Mediterranean destinations in Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Greece and Turkey. For those wishing to book a hotel as well as flights, then easyJet Holidays also have a range of 2 to 5 star hotels and guarantee the lowest price on holidays booked with an easyJet flight.

Zante, also often known as Zakynthos, is the most southerly of the Ionian Islands and one of the most popular Greek islands for holidaymakers. Flights from Liverpool will operate weekly departing on Thursdays, commencing on 23rd April 2015.

With the Pound having recently soared to reach a fresh seven-year high against the Euro, now is a great time for a holiday in Europe with UK holidaymakers getting about 10% more for their money, compared with the same time last year.

Mark Povall, Director of Air service Development for Liverpool John Lennon Airport commented, ”Zante is a summer holiday destination that is popular with passengers from across the region and one that we know will do well from Liverpool.

This new service will see increased numbers of passengers travelling from Liverpool in 2015 and a further growth in easyJet operations here.”

Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Commercial Manager, said: “We’re delighted to be adding Zakynthos to easyJet’s range of destinations from Liverpool. This announcement today highlights our commitment to providing affordable routes to summer destinations from Liverpool and we’re pleased to be able to strengthen our route network.

Our Greek routes are proving extremely popular for those who wish to get some easy and affordable summer sun, and we’re sure that this new route will be no exception.”
