“We are delighted to be adding additional flights for customers thinking about a late summer holiday this year or looking ahead to next year. For sun-seekers Lanzarote in the Canaries is a firm favourite for guaranteed summer sun, whilst the historic sights of Malta in the heart of the Med or an ancient Greek experience in Athens offers a rich cultural holiday experience. Finally, Naples in southern Italy provides for those looking for the perfect combination of new and old traditions to explore. The additional flying from both Gatwick and Luton means we can offer more choice and great value fares for our customers.”
