EasyJet launches new route to the Canary Islands

Low-fare airline easyJet is to start services to Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands.

From March 28 next year, the budget carrier will operate twice-weekly flights to the second-largest of the Canary Islands from Gatwick airport.

Seats go on sale from today, with fares starting from £35.99 one way including taxes.

Fuerteventura is the ninth new route to be introduced by easyJet from Gatwick since the beginning of this year.

The no-frills carrier now flies to more than 93 destinations from the West Sussex airport.
