Passengers between Europe and South East Asia are being promised easier bookings via the ‘Worldwide by easyJet’ connections platform after easyJet said it was partnering with Singapore Airlines (SIA) and its low-cost subsidiary Scoot in the project.
EasyJet customers will be able to connect to long-haul flights with Singapore Airlines via Milan Malpensa and with Scoot via Berlin Tegel. The service is set to become available “within the coming months”.
The move means ten airline partners will now be offering flights to 100 destinations through the ‘Worldwide' platform, with more than 53m easyJet passengers able to connect to its own and other airlines’ flights
The SIA group’s combined network connects 135-plus destinations in more than 35 countries across five continents, with a combined fleet of more than 180 aircraft.
• Elsewhere, easyJet, which last week said it was launching a new base in Nantes from next spring (see image below), has also released traffic statistics for August 2018 revealing a 5.8% growth in passenger numbers compared to the previous 12 months.
The airline saw a 5.5% capacity increase for the month and a load factor of 96.3%. It operated 50,500 flights, an average of 1,600 flights a day, and carried more than 250,000 passengers a day – a total of 8.6m – across its European network.
