The same week as easyJet launched its new Lisbon base, the airline announced 10 new routes out of the UK for the coming winter season, ensuring further celebrations like these in the Portuguese capital. An all-new destination for the airline is Luxembourg, which only has had low-cost connections with Iceland before.
