EasyJet has launched two new flight routes from London Gatwick Airport
Budget airline easyJet is expanding its services from London Gatwick Airport, with the introduction of two new flight routes to Verona in Italy and Aberdeen in Scotland.
The company said passengers will be offered daily services to both the destinations.
Located in northern Italy, Verona sports a diverse array of attractions including an amphitheatre and 12th-century churches featuring "some of the finest ancient architecture in Europe". The city in Veneto is known as the setting for William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.
People embarking on a holiday to the destination may also enjoy its winding lanes which offer a selection of shops, cafes and restaurants.
Meanwhile, the flight route to Aberdeen has been launched mainly to cater to the growing demand for more connections between England's capital and the Scottish oil and gas city.
Ahead off setting off on a journey, people may find it useful to have an adequate
travel insurance policy in place.
Paul Simmons, easyJet's UK director, said the new services will prove beneficial for both business as well as leisure passengers.
He added: "Verona is a popular holiday destination for culture vultures and all year round sun-seekers and we've responded to customer feedback for a daily route to Aberdeen, which will allow us to carry an extra 100,000 passengers a year between the two cities."
The airline - which is already offering new services to places such as Amman, Seville, Izmir, Bologna, Zagreb from London Gatwick - is planning to launch a route to Catania in Sicily.
