Easyjet will operate three-times weekly flights from Bristol to the southern Italian city of Naples from May next year.
The carrier will commence the route on May 12, 2012, with flights departing on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Tickets will go on sale for the next route tomorrow (Thursday September 22).
The new service will be the only direct route between Bristol and Naples – Easyjet currently offers flights from London Gatwick, London Stansted and Liverpool John Lennon to the city, while BA flies from London Gatwick.
