easyJet to launch the first commercial flights between the UK and Salerno’s Amalfi Coast airport

One of Europe's leading budget carriers, easyJet has confirmed it will start two new routes from the UK, including one to Salerno’s Amalfi Coast airport, making it the first and only UK airline to operate commercial flights from the airport when they take off from 13th July 2024.

The twice-weekly departures from London Gatwick will operate throughout the summer on Tuesdays and Saturdays and its holiday sideline will arrange package holidays from next summer.  

The new route to the former military-only airport which is now open for commercial flights for the first time becomes easyJet’s 157th destination on its expansive network, with flights also launching from Milan, Berlin, Basel and Geneva.

The Amalfi Coast is one of the most popular destinations in Italy and home to charming historical towns with sheer cliffs overlooking beautiful beaches, as well as boasting UNESCO World Heritage site status. The new route will provide even greater choice for UK travellers looking to explore more of the fantastic sights and experiences that Italy has to offer holidaymakers.

The airline has also announced this week that it will relaunch its service between Newcastle and Amsterdam for next summer, with seats also on sale today. Flights will take off from 5th September and operate year-round on Thursdays and Sundays. With something to offer everyone, from its world-renowned museums and historical landmarks to its charming canals and lively nightlife, the service will provide customers in the North of England with convenient connectivity to one of Europe’s most popular city destinations, whether for leisure or business.

Ali Gayward, easyJet Country Manager, commented:  “We are delighted to announce the launch of two new routes from the UK today as we continue to strengthen our network and offer even more choice for our customers across the UK.

“We are particularly excited to welcome a new destination to our network, with a unique connection from the UK to Salerno’s Amalfi coast airport serving one of the most iconic, scenic parts of Italy from London Gatwick.

“We’re also adding more great value connectivity for customers in the North of England with a service from Newcastle to Amsterdam, which we know will prove popular with those looking for a city break or travelling for business, and we look forward to welcoming more customers onboard.”
