From Edinburgh Airport, flights to Antalya are scheduled to launch from June 3, with departures on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and to Santorini from June 2 with a weekly departure on Tuesdays, all throughout the summer season.

Flights are available to book from today on the easyJet website and via the mobile app.

Kate Sherry, aviation director at Edinburgh Airport, said: “A new year always brings new routes, and January is the perfect time to start thinking and get excited about that sunshine holiday later in the year.

“It’s great to see easyJet adding Antalya and Santorini to its already extensive selection at Edinburgh, and we hope the thought of a summer getaway to these fantastic destinations will provide some excitement to our passengers.”

Christopher Tibbett, group head of airline relations and marketing at AGS Airports, said: “This announcement from easyJet is tremendous news as Lisbon is a fantastic city and I’m certain it will be a very popular destination with our passengers when the route launches in June.

“Following easyJet’s announcement late last year that the airline will also operate a twice-weekly service to Porto, Scottish travellers looking to enjoy city breaks in Portugal will be well served the summer at Glasgow.”
