“We are committed to strengthening our unrivaled short-haul network and providing our customers with affordable and convenient connections across Scotland, all with great value fares and the warm welcome our staff are known for.”
Kate Sherry, director of aviation at Edinburgh Airport, said: “A new year always brings new routes and January is the perfect time to think and get excited about that sunshine holiday later in the year.
“It’s great that easyJet is adding Antalya and Santorini to the already extensive choice in Edinburgh and we hope the idea of a summer holiday to these fantastic destinations will give our passengers some excitement.”
Christopher Tibbett, Group Head of Airline Relations and Marketing at AGS Airports, said: “This announcement from easyJet is fantastic news as Lisbon is a fantastic city and I’m sure it will be a very popular destination for our passengers when the route launches. June.
“Scottish travelers looking to enjoy city breaks in Portugal will be well served in Glasgow during the summer, following easyJet’s announcement late last year that the airline would also operate a twice-weekly service to Porto.”
