The first flights to Enfidha in Tunisia took off today from the city travel hub.

Meanwhile, flights to Larnaca, in Cyprus, are set to take off for the first time later this week with great value fares still available for this summer from £39.99.

The news means that easyJet, Scotland‘s biggest airline, will be operating its largest ever flying programme from the country this summer, offering over 2.2 million seats to and from Glasgow.

The new neo aircraft will join three Airbus A320 family aircraft already serving customers in Glasgow, the most since operations began.

They now jet off to 86 routes across 19 countries in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa.

The new flights to Tunisia will head off twice weekly on Thursdays and Sundays throughout the year while the Cyprus trips will operate on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming the sixth aircraft to our fleet in Glasgow today and launching more new routes for what is set to be our biggest ever summer in Scotland.

“We are proud to have flown over 42 million passengers to and from Glasgow, which is a testament to our continued success and commitment to our customers in Scotland who continue to choose us for our unrivalled network, fantastic service and great value fares.”

And Mark Beveridge, Managing Director at Glasgow Airport, added:
“It has been nearly 30 years since easyJet’s first-ever flight touched down in Glasgow and in the ensuing years the relationship between airline and airport has gone from strength to strength.

“Today we welcome the addition of a sixth aircraft to easyJet’s Glasgow-based fleet, which is a significant investment and underlines the airline’s commitment to delivering growth at our airport.

“As well as supporting 40 new jobs here at Glasgow, this additional aircraft will help deliver even more choice and convenience for the 2.5 million passengers who choose to travel with easyJet across 34 destinations from our airport each year.”
