UK no-frills airline easyJet has announced a new route from Gatwick Airport to Zagreb, Croatia.
Flights will go to the Central European country five times a week and prices for a seat on the plane start at £25.99 one-way, including taxes.
Zagreb, Croatia’s capital, is known as the country’s cultural and political hub, with the picturesque Medvednica Mountain in the background and the Sava River running through it.
The city history can be traced to the era of the Roman Empire and the city itself was once split in two. It is well known for its great geographical location as it straddles the Pannonian Basin, which leads to the Adriatic, Alpine, Dinaric and Pannonic regions.
The carrier now flies to 92 destinations from London Gatwick and will soon be taking the total to 100 when more European destinations are added.
General manager of the airline Paul Simmons said: “We’ve launched the new Zagreb route as it is a popular destination for both business and leisure passengers. With flights from £25.99 one-way and departing from London Gatwick fives times a week we’re making it accessible for everyone.
“easyJet is the largest airline to fly from London Gatwick and the new Zagreb route means we fly to 92 destinations. A further six new routes will be launching shortly to Amman, Aberdeen, Izmir, Verona, Seville and Bologna providing even more choice to travellers.”
