easyJet has announced it is launching a new route to the French capital from London Southend Airport.

Flights to Paris Charles de Gaulle are now on sale and will operate four times weekly throughout the year from February 26.

The route is expected to be popular amongst leisure and business passengers, with the carrier expecting to fly 50,000 passengers between the destinations annually.

The airline’s commercial manager, Neil Slaven, said: “We’re delighted to be adding a new route to Paris. Our Paris routes have proved extremely popular in both the summer and winter owing to its world famous attractions and its global status for art, fashion, gastronomy and culture.

"There is a growing demand for short and long breaks in Paris and we are able to make it convenient to reach both sides of the route and to provide value for British and French consumers. Expanding our operations between London Southend and Charles De Gaulle shows our commitment to make travel easy and affordable for leisure and business travellers from the airport.”
