The airline, which launched flights from the east London airport on 2 April last year, has since carried 709,000 passengers and built its route network from the airport to 15 routes from the eight it started with.

EasyJet UK commerical manager Hugh Aitken says: "We're keen to continue adding more varied routes to our schedule and over the coming weeks we'll see inaugural flights to Edinburgh, Berlin, Krakow and Newquay take-off."
