easyJet, the UK's largest airline, is launching a new route to Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands from its biggest base, London Gatwick.

The inaugural flight will depart on 28th March 2012 and will fly twice weekly from Gatwick to Fuerteventura. Seats go on sale from today with fares starting from £35.99 (one way including taxes).

Fuerteventura is best known for its miles of white sandy beaches and secluded coves. It basks in over 3,000 hours of sunshine per year and is a popular retreat for water sport enthusiasts. Inland, it is characterised by its white washed buildings, palm trees and flat desert-like landscape.

Located less than 100km off the coast of Morocco, Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary Islands.

Paul Simmons, easyJet's UK Director, said: "Our new route from Gatwick to Fuerteventura will give passengers easy and affordable access to a perfect all year round beach holiday destination. Besides its appeal to sun worshippers, the island is one of Europe's best locations for surfing and diving and is another fantastic addition to the 92 destinations we already fly to from London Gatwick."

easyJet now offers passengers the choice of 93 destinations from London Gatwick. Fuerteventura is the ninth new route to be introduced by easyJet from London Gatwick in 2011, other destinations include: Amman, Catania, Seville, Izmir, Bologna, Verona, Zagreb and Aberdeen.
