Continuing a period of expansion at Manchester, in addition to Sharm el Sheikh, easyJet has also announced a further two new routes from Manchester, which are now on sale. Flights to the Italian capital city Rome will operate three times a week starting on 7 June along with twice-weekly flights to Menorca with the first flight departing on 4 June.  With Egypt proving popular in the North West, the airline is also extending its winter flights to Hurghada to operate year-round three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Sundays with the first flight departing on 1 June.

“easyJet has seen significant growth at Manchester Airport over the last two years and has now carried 22 million passengers since operations began in 2008,” said Ali Gayward, UK Country Manager, easyJet. “In the past year alone, we have grown more than 17% driven by the basing of seven new aircraft which have enabled the introduction of popular new routes.”
