A budget airline has teamed up with students at a county college to highlight three new summer destinations.

The group of 12 Northumberland College students, who are studying Aviation Services, gave a comprehensive travel guide on easyJet’s three new routes, at Newcastle International Airport.

The students researched, compiled and designed the guide themselves and were given the opportunity to engage with passengers to provide top tourism tips to those planning their summer holidays.

Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK commercial manager, said: “It’s been fantastic to have worked with such budding and enthusiastic aviation students from Northumberland College today.

“easyJet is always trying to further enhance our customers’ experience and I think today’s activity has provided some great travel tips for passengers potentially looking to travel on our new routes this summer.”

Chris Sanders, aviation development director at Newcastle International Airport, added: “What a wonderful way to get the word out to passengers about easyJet’s three new summer destinations to Split in Croatia, Rhodes and Corfu.

“The students have had a lovely morning chatting with travellers at check in about the new services and we hope passengers have found the information very helpful.”
