No-frills airline easyJet has unveiled a wide variety of new services for 2008, including a number to the island of Corsica.
The company's takeover of GB Airways has resulted in 21 new destinations being made available by the low-cost carrier, with Corsica among them.
easyJet will be taking over 32 routes which are currently operated by GB Airways, although 11 of these are already serviced by the budget airline.
"It is intended GB Airways will continue to operate all routes under the British Airways brand until March 29th," a statement from easyJet explained.
The company continued: "After this, subject to regulatory approval, the GB flights will operate under the Easyjet brand and all customers who have booked to travel with GB Airways next summer will be given the choice of flying with Easyjet at the same times or else receive a refund."
Among the new routes offered by easyJet will be services from Gatwick to Ajaccio and Bastia in Corsica and altogether the new services acquired in the takeover will take easyJet's routes from Gatwick to 66.
