Well, this is one way to spring a surprise…

At the time of year when most of us are raiding the attic for shorts, dresses and miniature fans ahead of those big summer getaways, EasyJet is already thinking about next year, putting spring 2023 firmly in its sights by releasing cheap tickets across all routes from 1 March to 8 May.

The low fare goliath has made huge discounts on over 100,000 flights throughout Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

Ferragudo. Lagoa Municipality. Faro district. Algarve. Portugal

Who knows — this time next year you might even be sunning it up in Naples, eating pasta in the finest restaurants, flicking through a novel down by the city’s waterfront or acquainting yourself with the city’s historical sights – all achievable with a flight ticket from Gatwick for no more than £39.99.

Compare that with this month — where flights between Gatwick and Napoli International (NAP) cost at least double this price, even reaching £236 for a single flight on certain days — and you’d be making great savings by booking early.

It’s unlikely we’ll see prices much cheaper. Akin to an orange-soaked Airbus A320 leaving the tarmac, springtime is the time of year when airfares typically rise steadily once the post-Christmas blues of winter have subsided, sharpening some more before finally levelling off much higher than they started if previous years are anything to go by.

For now, at least, EasyJet’s price rates don’t look as though they are fluctuating too much next year from January into May 2023, staying fairly low on most routes. On this EasyJet graph of average flight prices between Gatwick to Lisbon (LIS), the cost of a single flight barely rises by a fiver in the space of four months.

The airline has also warned of a crazy few months ahead for those braving the airport queues. “This summer easyJet is looking forward to returning to near 2019 levels of flying,” added Gayward. We continue to fly up to a quarter of a million customers across our network every day.
