“This is the first route that easyJet has introduced into its new Manchester base and we look forward to further expansion in the near future,” said easyJet UK Commercial Director Carly Brear.
“Alicante is proven to be a popular destination from other easyJet bases in the UK and now independent travelers from the North West will be able to take advantage of this new service from our Manchester base, to one of the most popular tourist destinations in Spain”, added.
