EASYJET, Scotland’s largest airline, today increased its routes from the country’s two busiest airports to 50 by announcing Edinburgh flights to Bodrum and Heraklion, and Glasgow flights to Kos and Split, from next summer.

The twice-weekly flights will start to Bodrum in Turkey on 31 March and to Heraklion in Crete the following day.

From Glasgow, flights start to the Greek destination on 5 April, and to Croatia on 22 June.

Other airlines already fly to all of the destinations from Glasgow apart from Split.

EasyJet’s latest expansion increases to 33 the airline’s routes from Edinburgh, where it added a seventh aircraft this year.

There are now 17 routes from Glasgow, where EasyJet has seven aircraft.

Edinburgh Airport chief commercial officer John Watson said: “We’re delighted to be offering Scottish passengers even more choice for their 2014 summer getaways with the announcement of these two routes.

“It has been a great year for Edinburgh Airport and EasyJet so far, with the airline launching six new European services from Edinburgh in March.”

They were Reykjavik, Dubrovnik, Berlin, Hamburg, Prague and Copenhagen.

Glasgow Airport commercial director Francois Bourienne said: “This is great news from easyJet comes at a time when many people will be starting to think about their summer holiday for 2014, so it’s fantastic that we can offer Split as a new destination from Glasgow.”
