easyJet - Best Airline Value for Money

Tell me about easyJet

Since it was founded in 1995 by Sir Stelios Haji-Loannou, easyJet has grown to become one of Britain’s most popular airlines. With its distinctive bright orange livery, easyJet flies 55 million passengers a year in over 200 aircraft to 600 routes. In January 1999, the airline was featured in the television series Airline, broadcast on ITV, which showed the airline's operations at Luton Airport. The carrier is credited with pioneering the online booking and check-in process that is now used by most airlines.

Why does easyJet represent value for money?

easyJet’s status as one of the UK’s leading low-cost airlines comes as a result of their no-frills approach to service. Inflight extras such as food, beverages and entertainment can be purchased on top of a flat ticket price, giving the customer the option to spend as much or as little as they wish.
The cost of the fare often increases as the departure date approaches, so the early booker comes away with the cheapest deal. Cheaper fares are also generally available during less busy periods. The airline's high standards of service, alongside a low-cost ticket price gives easyJet its reputation of value-for-money.

Has easyJet won any other awards?

easyJet scooped the Best Airline Value For Money Award in the 2011 and 2010 Holiday Extras Customers' Awards.

easyJet was named winner of the Best Low-Cost Airline in Europe award at the World Airline Awards staged at the Paris Air Show.
