STANSTED Airport is gearing up for a busy Easter period as holidaymakers take advantage of new routes to warmer climates.

"We're expecting around 350,000 passengers to travel through Stansted Airport over the Easter period, proving people still want to take a break and head away despite the economic climate," said Stansted Airport's commercial and development director Nick Barton.

"Visiting friends and family will be a main reason for travel but many will also be taking advantage of the huge range of destinations available including AirAsia X's low-cost flights to Malaysia, and onward connections to Australia, and the new routes launched by easyJet and Ryanair this week to Sardinia and Sicily."

This Easter Stansted Airport has launched new routes, sees the return of popular summer destinations and is giving some lucky passengers the chance to have their Tax Free shopping paid for.
