EasyJet: Two new flights launched

Two new EasyJet flights from Glasgow Airport to locations in Croatia and Greece have been launched.

The first flight to Pula took off on Monday afternoon with journeys to Chania in the Greek island of Crete to leave on Wednesday.

EasyJet said the services are “providing customers in Scotland with the opportunity to explore more of Europe this summer”. 

The new flight to the city on Croatia’s Istrian Peninsula, known for its scenic coastlines, will operate up to twice a week on Mondays and Fridays throughout the summer.

Flights to Chania will operate twice weekly on Wednesdays and Sundays until September 4.

Ali Gayward, EasyJet’s UK Country Manager, said: “We are delighted to be launching new flights from Glasgow Airport to Pula and Chania.

“These routes further strengthen our network from Scotland and provide more connectivity for our customers wanting to explore or relax in some of Europe’s most scenic destinations. 

“We are proud to be the largest airline in Scotland and offer our customers great value fares and more choice when they fly with us.” 

Christopher Tibbett, head of airline relations at Glasgow Airport, said: “The launch of these new routes to Pula and Chania from Glasgow Airport are both welcome and timely as we enter the popular summer holiday season.

“A large number of our passengers haven’t been overseas in nearly three years and are rightly keen to enjoy a well-deserved sunshine break.

“The addition of these easyJet services not only delivers two more fantastic destinations for Scottish travellers to explore, but also demonstrates that our industry is on the path to recovery.”
