Easyjet Launches Moscow Flights

European low cost carrier Easyjet looks east towards Russia for growth, launching flights to Moscow (Domodedovo) from London (Gatwick), its 100th route out of the airport. The airline will also begin flights to the Russian capital from Manchester later this month, giving travellers more flight options.
