Low-cost airline EasyJet will soon be launching a new route to Heraklion in Crete for the first time from Luton Airport.
The proposed once-a-week flights will commence on 21 April 2012 and the one-way fares are expected to cost from £44.99 inclusive of taxes. .
In September, Easyjet announced it also intends to operate a new route to the island of Corfu, with a twice weekly service commencing on 31 March 2012 at prices starting from just £37.99.
These new routes from London – Luton Airport are a welcome addition, saving some holidaymakers the normal lengthy journey time of having to travel to a larger airport like Gatwick, Heathrow or Stanstead for a similar Greek island flight.
