They will both operate twice a week during the winter, complementing existing routes from London Gatwick, Bristol, and Manchester in an effort to increase popularity among families visiting Santa Claus’ famous home this winter.

Ahead of the festive season, the low-cost carrier will also begin four additional trips from the UK to Egypt’s scuba diving hotspot Hurghada. Flights will depart from Liverpool twice a week beginning October 29, Glasgow twice a week beginning November 8, and Belfast once a week beginning October 31.
