The airline will fly to Berlin, Hamburg, Prague, Copenhagen, Reykjavik and Dubrovnik.
‘Two extra planes will serve the capital as part of the expansion, which will take the number of crafts to seven and boost the total number of easyJet routes to 30.
It is estimated a further 500 jobs could be created indirectly by the plans.
EasyJet said the new routes will bring in almost 140,000 more passengers, benefiting the economy by up to £90 million.’
The airline’s Scottish head Hugh Aitken said: “I’m confident our new 2013 schedule will really appeal to people travelling to and from Scotland, both on business and for leisure, and will further bolster Edinburgh’s world-famous appeal for tourists.”
The first Airbus A319 is scheduled to arrive on December 2, with the second plane beginning operations in March next year.
The new routes start on March 21 next year, apart from Dubrovnik, which begins on April 27.
