Low-fare airline easyJet has announced a series of new routes for winter 2012.

The budget carrier will start services from Gatwick Airport to the Isle of Man, Turin and Tallinn in Estonia.

From Southend Airport in Essex, easyJet is adding services to Geneva and Venice, while it will be starting a new Manchester to Tel Aviv service.

From Newcastle, the carrier will be flying to Amsterdam and it is also operating a new Bristol-Copenhagen service.

EasyJet also announced earlier this week that it was starting flights between Belfast International and Birmingham.

The route expansion has added more than 230,000 seats to easyJet's winter 2012 schedule, which now extends to 280 routes.
