Dear Skyscanner,I’d like to get away for a break this autumn; are there any interesting new routes and locations you’d recommend?Jamie, IpswichDear Jamie,During 2010, something like 2,000 new air routes will take off around the world. That gives you some indication of the kind of choice you have when it comes to finding a fresh destination to jet off to this autumn.As you’re based in the south-east, with access to Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Luton and Southampton, there’s plenty of choice. If you want to stay up to date on the latest route launches, keep an eye on the Travel Industry News page at and easyJet will launch more new routes than any other UK airlines this year; among Ryanair’s new routes launching on October 31 from Gatwick is Bologna (the others are Faro, Milan Bergamo and Porto).Bologna is one of Italy’s lesser-trodden city breaks, but I’d highly recommend it. The university means it has an international feel, but is still resolutely Italian. You’ll start the day propping up your local coffee bar with an espresso and cake (yes – at breakfast), then I’d recommend wandering around Piazza Maggiore to see its fountain, eat homemade tagliatelle al ragu for lunch, pop into the Mercato di Mezzo market to pick up some cheesy souvenirs and check out the church of Santa Maria della Vita to see its striking interior and sculpture. Flights to Bologna are on sale now and start from £17.99 one way, although you’re unlikely to get that fare if you’re travelling during the peak weekend hours of late Friday/early Saturday, returning late Sunday.If you’re looking for some late autumn sunshine that is guaranteed, you might want to hop on easyjet’s new Gatwick-Luxor flight, launching on November 3.Luxor, in southern Egypt, is famous for its ancient sights, most notably the temple complex at Karnak and the Luxor Temple. On the other side of the Nile from Luxor are the famous Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens, plus, from Luxor you can take a Nile excursion on one of the traditional wooden felucca sailing boats up to Aswan, site of the dam and a wonderful market town. Flights to Luxor start at £89.99 one way and are on sale now.If you’re after something more exotic there were two interesting new routes launched out of Heathrow this summer. The first is to Accra, the capital of Ghana.They’re on sale from as little as £313 return and it’s the perfect place to start if you’ve never been to West Africa – friendly, and safe. That said, you should, of course, follow the current travel advice from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. The highlights include the Gold Coast, castles built variously by Portuguese, Dutch, Danish, Swedish, Prussian and British settlers down the years, and Kumasi, the ancient capital turned hive of modern activity, as well as the museums and markets of Accra. (Find flights to Accra).The second route is to Shiraz, which runs until the end of October. This Iranian city is known for its arts and academia, and is home to the tombs of the classical poets Sa’di and Hafez, and is actually called the city of poets and gardens. It’s a good starting point from which to head north, a short distance, to the ruins of Persepolis and Esfahan. As well as visiting countless ancient monuments, mosques and museums, you should take time to sample the many bazaars – it’s like stepping into Arabian Nights. Silverware, rugs and spices are all good souvenirs to take home.You’ll also be able to sample Iran’s superb cuisine – fragrant rice dishes, grilled meats, and wonderful fresh dates, spices and pistachios. Fares on this route start at £478 return – search flights to Shiraz.Answer by Ginny Light – TimesOnline travel editorGot a travel question?
