easyJet has announced that a further 3,272 seats on routes between the UK and Gibraltar are now on sale until March 2018.
The extra seats mean that passengers now have more opportunity to fly between the UK and Gibraltar throughout the winter.
2772 seats have been added on flights from London Gatwick to Gibraltar, an increase of 7%, and 500 seats have been added on flights between Bristol and Gibraltar, an increase of 3%. The extra capacity is thanks to upgrades at both UK bases from a 156-seat A319 to A320 aircraft, which flies up to 186 passengers.
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager commented:
“We’re delighted to be able to provide even more seats from our customers who want to travel between Gibraltar and the UK throughout the winter. We’ve added a significant number of extra seats which allows us to continue providing affordable, convenient connections for our customers whether they’re travelling on business or leisure.”
The Hon Gilbert Licudi QC, Minister for Tourism of Her Majesty’s Government of Gibraltar said:
“This is great news from easyJet. It adds very much needed capacity to Gibraltar for the winter season. I must commend easyJet and the Gibraltar Tourist Board, who are in constant contact for having achieved this in a short space of time. The Government has been working very hard behind the scenes to address current and future capacity issues to Gibraltar from the UK and this move from easyJet demonstrates their commitment to Gibraltar.”
easyJet flies from the UK to Gibraltar up to 38 times a weeks in peak summer, with flights available from London Gatwick, Bristol and Manchester.
