easyJet has announced the launch of a new route to the popular Greek island of Corfu for summer 2023.
The new Liverpool-Corfu route is scheduled to launch on June 4, 2023, with weekly departures on Sundays, offering customers more choice for a beach holiday. Seats are now on sale with fares starting from GBP26.99 at easyJet.com and via the mobile app. The airline has also put its autumn 2023 schedule on sale last week, with tens of thousands of flights between October 1 and November 30 2023.
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK country manager, said: ‘I am delighted to be announcing our plans for expansion at Liverpool today. The addition of another aircraft will help us to further strengthen our network in Liverpool and offer customers an even wider range of destinations, like our new route to Corfu. And with flights for autumn 2023 on sale tomorrow, customers can also book early for next autumn and snap up the best fares across our network to find a great-value getaway or October half term holiday.
‘We know that holidays are important to people, not only does travelling connect friends and family but it offers a wealth of benefits, from promoting wellbeing to experiencing new cultures. The results of our survey just go to show what a priority it is for people, with so many determined to protect their holidays.
‘With our low fares and unrivalled European network, easyJet is ideally placed to offer a fantastic value and great quality holiday that people don’t have to compromise on. It is fantastic to see that so many consumers plan to travel next year already, and we look forward to welcoming them onboard.’
Paul Winfield, director of Aviation Development for Liverpool John Lennon Airport commented: ‘We’re delighted that easyJet will be offering passengers from the North West and North Wales even more opportunities to fly from the region’s airport of choice, with more seats now on sale from Liverpool for next Summer as we continue our recovery from the pandemic. Our reputation of delivering a faster, easier, friendlier customer experience is seeing more and more passengers asking to fly from Liverpool.’
According to recent research by the airline, 64 percent of Brits plan to fly abroad in 2023, and 70 percent will prioritise a holiday over other expenditure in their yearly budget. Consumers are also looking at prioritising a holiday, with two thirds of people looking to booking with a low-cost carrier (66 percent), while three quarters of people will fly short haul instead long haul (74 percent) and holiday in closer to home destinations in Europe (70 percent). The majority (80 percent) also believed that holidaying in the UK can be more expensive.
