After winning the traffic rights to operate to Moscow, easyJet plans to begin twice-daily services from London Gatwick to Moscow Domodedovo with an A320 from next spring.
The airline expects to transport over 230,000 people in the first year of operations.
The airline also plans to operate the only service between the UK and Kalamata, with a new service from Gatwick. Other new destinations planned from the UK’s second busiest airport include the Spanish city of Santiago.
From London Luton Airport, easyJet will launch routes to the Greek island of Mykonos and Sardinian resort of Olbia, both currently unserved from the UK gateway.
New destinations from Stansted include Sofia, Sharm el Sheikh and Marrakech. This will put them in direct competition with Ryanair, which also operates to Marrakech and Thomsonfly on the Sharm el Sheikh route, according to OAG Analyser.
From its newest UK base London Southend, the carrier plans to launch new routes to Berlin and Krakow.
According to easyJet, the additional 10 routes will add 316,000 seats to its 2013 network, which now consists of 340 routes.
“Adding further capacity to key business destinations is a further sign of our commitment to the London market and to provide an easier alternative to Heathrow. Alongside Belfast and Bologna we also offer a strong range of business destinations such as Edinburgh, Milan and Madrid,” said Paul Simmons, easyJet’s UK Director in a statement.
