EasyJet has launched new flights from Edinburgh Airport for those seeking winter sun.

While the weather hasn't felt overly summery in Edinburgh recently, many will surely be dreaming of warmer climates and already dreading the coming winter.

However, flights to Agadir in Morroco will be taking off from the capital on Wednesdays and Saturdays starting from November.
