EasyJet’s pace-setting connections service Worldwide by easyJet has gained a powerful new recruit in the shape of Emirates, joining a line-up including Virgin Atlantic and Norwegian plus Singapore Airlines and its low-cost subsidiary Scoot.
Worldwide also includes Air Transat, WestJet, Thomas Cook Airlines, Corsair, La Compagnie, Aurigny and Loganair. EasyJet said the Emirates connection is expected to be live “in the coming months”.
From then, easyJet says, passengers will be able to connect seamlessly between flights across its European network flying into Gatwick and onward on Emirates flights, initially between Gatwick and Dubai, but extending later to more gateways and destinations.
Worldwide by easyJet has been growing consistently, with statistics showing more than 5,000 unique origins and destinations have been booked in combination with partner airlines.
EasyJet CEO Johan Lundgren said: “Given we and Emirates both serve many popular destinations from Gatwick, their addition will be popular with our customers seeking an easy and seamless way to connect between Europe, the Middle East and beyond.
“We have been delighted with the appetite of partner airlines to expand Worldwide across our network and continue to broaden our focus to offer this unique connecting service at more of our biggest airports.
