Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK country manager, said: “We are delighted to be adding three new routes from London Luton Airport this winter which all offer something for everyone from exotic winter sun to short city hops, we are providing more choice for customers from across the region who choose us for our unrivalled network, fantastic service and great value fares.”

Jonathan Rayner, Chief Commercial Officer at London Luton Airport (LLA), said: “The addition of these three exciting routes for the winter schedule is excellent news for passengers travelling from LLA. As well as being a gateway to several ski resorts, Basel, along with Athens, is a hugely popular destination for city break passengers, whilst the addition of Djerba to our departure boards provides a wonderful new Mediterranean option for sun seekers.”

Flights on these routes are available to book at easyJet.com and via the mobile app, with flights to Athens and Basel starting at £35.99 and seats on Djerba flights from £51.13.
