UK low-cost carrier EasyJet will begin flights to Luxembourg and the Isle of Man as part of a number of new routes from its London Gatwick base.

EasyJet will fly from Gatwick to the Isle of Man six times per week, starting 23 April. This will be followed by a new route to Luxembourg from the same airport, initially served four times weekly. The airline believes the Gatwick-Luxembourg routes provides a lucrative opportunity, given what it calls the current "British Airways and Luxair duopoly" between the two cities. BA and Luxair currently serve Luxembourg from London City and Heathrow airports.

The UK budget carrier will at the end of October begin flights between Gatwick and the Estonian capital Tallinn four times a week.

The Italian city of Turin is to be linked with Gatwick on a twice-weekly basis from 15 December.

EasyJet has will also add services from its new London Southend base to Venice next February. The lagoon city will be served four times per week.
