easyJet, the UK’s largest airline today celebrated the launch of its new route to the Greek island of Zakynthos from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA).

This latest addition to easyJet’s Summer 2015 line up of destinations departs from Liverpool each Thursday lunchtime throughout the Summer and the airline is expected to fly 6,000 passengers between the destinations annually.

easyJet now has 30 destinations on sale from Liverpool having carried over one million passengers from here last year and this new route compliments the airline’s mix of City and holiday destinations already operating from Liverpool.

Zakynthos is the most southerly of the Ionian Islands and one of the most popular Greek islands for holidaymakers.

Mark Povall, Director of Air Service Development for Liverpool John Lennon Airport commented, “Zakynthos is a great summer holiday destination and this new service now gives passengers from across the region the added convenience of being able to fly direct from their local airport.

“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. It’s really exciting to be here to see our first flight depart today and highlights our commitment to providing affordable routes to summer destinations from Liverpool but will also benefit inbound tourism to the city.

“Our Greek routes are proving extremely popular for those who wish to get some easy and affordable summer sun, and we’re sure that our new route and our 30th destination from Liverpool will be a success.”
