EasyJet Announces New Summer Route Linking London to Italy’s ‘Most Scenic’ Hotspot

Low-fare carrier easyJet has announced an exciting new summer route from London Gatwick to Salerno’s Amalfi Coast.

The budget carrier will operate its new Gatwick to Salerno route biweekly on Tuesday and Saturday nights, starting July 13.

According to Skyscanner, eager holidaymakers currently have to pay £242 to travel to the Amalfi coast’s nearest airport by plane, with stopovers unavoidable.

As easyJet’s new route comes into operation, however, fares will start from £27.99 per person.

The Amalfi coast will become easyJet’s 157th destination

The route will be the first to operate between London and the Amalfi’s Salerno, which was previously a military airport.
