The airline will increase the frequency of its cheap flights to Dalaman, Split, Bodrum, Mykonos, Montpellier and Toulouse from the UK’s second-busiest airport.
In order to accommodate the extra flights, easyJet will be basing an additional aircraft at Gatwick, increasing its presence there to 39.
Paul Simmons, easyJet UK regional general manager, said that the carrier had "grown dramatically" at Gatwick during the past few years, with the London airport now easyJet’s largest base.
"Given the range of services we offer, from speedy boarding to the best hand baggage allowance in the business, it’s not surprising that passengers are flocking to easyJet in record numbers and today’s announcement will strengthen further our position at Gatwick," he commented.
Seats for the additional flights, which take effect from July 17th, went on sale on Wednesday (April 22nd).
From May 1st, the airline’s passengers will be able to buy Starbucks coffee on flights to and from Newcastle, London Stansted, London Gatwick and Madrid.
