Sophie Dekkers, easyJet’s UK director, said: ‘We’re pleased to be putting winter 2015 on sale for our passengers today, allowing them to book early and take advantage of our lowest fares to the ski resorts as well as to the cities and beaches across Europe.

‘With our record 750+ routes on sale, passengers have more choice than ever on where to spend their winter. easyJet flies to popular ski and winter sun destinations at high frequencies because this allows travellers to depart on the day they prefer and choose the length of holiday to suit them.’
