easyJet, the UK’s largest and Europe’s leading airline has today (17 October) marked the start of its new flights between Henri Coanda Airport Bucharest, and London Gatwick. The first easyJet flight from Gatwick was welcomed by a water arch salute on arrival and passengers were greeted by the airport’s CEO Liviu Radu as they disembarked.
With easyJet’s flights to London starting from as little as €35.12,* the capital city is set to become a popular destination for city breakers looking to explore London or those travelling further afield and is expected to be popular with leisure and business travellers alike.
