The expanded Canary Islands programme includes five new routes to from Edinburgh to Lanzarote and Fuerteventura; from Glasgow to Tenerife and Gran Canaria and Belfast to Tenerife, with flights taking off from 7 November.

Ali Gayward, the airline's UK Country Manager, said: "Since the government's announcement we've already seen a surge of demand for flights and holidays to the Canary Islands - we've seen a 500% increase day on day on searches - so we know that there is customer demand, they want to travel and this demonstrates they will do so when travel restrictions are relaxed."

EasyJet holidays packages start at £289 per person.

Matt Callaghan, easyJet holidays Customer Director, said: "We can't wait to start taking our customers back to the Canary Islands, which are a perfect year-round destination and a firm favourite."
