Thu, 10 Jul, 2008

Budget airline easyJet has announced that it is to begin flying to Sofia and Geneva from Manchester Airport this coming winter.

The three times a week service to the Bulgarian capital will take off for the first time on December 11th, with one-way tickets available from £33.99.

Flights to Geneva commence the following day and seats on any of the nine weekly flights will start from £29.99.

Manchester Airport's director of aviation development Tim McDermott said he was pleased easyJet had decided to increase its number of destinations from Ringway to seven.

He added: "Sofia and Geneva are important business and leisure destinations and we are sure they will prove to be incredibly popular with our passengers."

The low-cost airline recently announced it had seen a surge in passenger numbers during June.

More than four million holidaymakers travelled with easyJet last month, compared with 3.4 million in June 2007.
