Easyjet & Norwegian tailfins

Easyjet has expanded its Worldwide connections service to another seven airports including flights from Edinburgh and Inverness.

The low-cost carrier will add Worldwide by Easyjet connections through other airlines at Berlin Tegel, Amsterdam Schiphol, Venice Marco Polo, as well as Paris Charles De Gaulle and Orly.

Currently bookings and connections through to other airlines’ flights are offered at Gatwick and Milan Malpensa after Easyjet launched the Worldwide service last year.

These airports have been added through Easyjet’s deals with four new connecting airline partners – Corsair, La Compagnie, Loganair and Thomas Cook Airlines.

Johan Lundgren, Easyjet’s CEO, said: “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.” 

Lundgren added that Easyjet was planning to sign further agreements throughout this year for other airlines to take part in the Worldwide product.

Worldwide by Easyjet programme:

Gatwick - Norwegian, Thomas Cook Airlines, Westjet, Aurigny     
Milan Malpensa - Neos, Norwegian
Paris CDG – Norwegian (spring 2018)
Paris Orly – Corsar, La Compagnie, Norwegian (spring 2018)
Venice – airlines TBC (from mid-April 2018)
Berlin – airlines TBC (from summer 2018)
Amsterdam Schiphol -  Norwegian (from summer 2018)
Edinburgh - Loganair, Norwegian (launch TBC)
Inverness – Loganair (launch TBC)

Connections through Worldwide by Easyjet are subject to a two hour 30 minute “minimum connection time” allowing passengers to transfer between flights and terminals. But the airline does not hold flights for connecting passengers who will be transferred to the next available flight if they miss their connection.
