Located off the western coast of Greece, Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands. It is best known for its stunning beaches, picturesque mountain top views and its carved underground lake. It basks in up to 12 hours of sunshine a day and offers the perfect combination of picture postcard harbours, golden sands and historic Roman ruins for a memorable and relaxing holiday.
Paul Simmons, easyJet’s UK Director, said: “Our new route to Kefalonia from Gatwick adds even more choice for passengers seeking an easy and affordable sunshine getaway next year. Greece has long been a favourite for sun worshippers and Kefalonia is among the pick of the Mediterranean’s most desirable getaways.
“The continued expansion of our Gatwick operation and the fact that we are the airport’s largest airline reflects easyJet’s commitment to providing travellers in the region with the best choice of destinations at the lowest possible fares.”
easyJet now offers passengers the choice of 93 destinations from London Gatwick. Kefalonia is the tenth new route to be added by easyJet from London Gatwick in 2011, other destinations include: Amman, Catania, Fuerteventura, Seville, Izmir, Bologna, Verona, Zagreb and Aberdeen.
Travellers looking to book their flights, accommodation and transfers in one go can find a wide range of flexible and affordable breaks to all easyJet destinations from Gatwick on the easyJet Holidays website (www.easyJet.com/holidays).
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
