Take the chance to catch the sun this winter with the new flights launched by easyJet from Bristol Airport! The budget airline has started running a flight route to the sun soaked shores of Las Palmas in Gran Canaria which has been known to reach 25 degrees in mid-December, while Britain are reaching for their coats! .
Known for its white sandy beaches and black lava, Gran Canaria, one of the Spanish Canary Islands, will have easyJet flights running twice a week from Bristol throughout autumn and winter from £26.99 per person each way.
UK Commercial Manager for easyJet, Ali Gayward, said: "We’re really pleased to launch yet another great route from Bristol Airport which is already proving extremely popular with our passengers.
"Gran Canaria has a something for everyone – from enduring beaches to the sand dunes in Maspalomas, the shopping in Las Palmas to the night time entertainment in Playa del Ingles.
"We’re absolutely committed to making travel easy and affordable for our passengers in the South-West and Wales – we now fly to 60 destinations from Bristol Airport and it’s one of the biggest bases in our network."
Since the beginning of operations 14 years ago, Bristol Airport marked a milestone at the beginning of the year of carrying over 40 million passengers. Passengers travelling from Bristol Airport can also grab some winter sun through destinations such as Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and Funchal in Madeira.
