Easyjet expands Worldwide connections

 

Easyjet have announced the expansion of its Worldwide connections service which will include a total of nine European airports, including Edinburgh & Inverness.

Johan Lundgren, Easyjet’s CEO, stated:

“The addition of Tegel, alongside other key airports in the network, means that 53 million Easyjet customers will be able to connect to other airlines’ or to Easyjet flights.

We have been delighted with the appetite of partner airports and airlines to expand Worldwide across our network allowing us to access a greater range of passengers flying across Europe.

Because of Easyjet’s reputation for great customer service and our strong positions at Europe’s leading airports, long haul carriers as well as airports have been asking to work with Easyjet for some time.”

The airline is keen to point out that the Worldwide connections service “does not impact Easyjet’s punctuality, its asset utilisation or operating model”.

Connecting passengers are subject to 2 hour 30 minute minimum connection time that will allow passengers to transfer between flights and terminals. It should be noted that the airline does not hold flights for connecting passengers - should a passenger miss their flight, they will be transferred to the next available flight.
