Record number of peak flights for easyJet

On 8 October, easyJet, the UK’s largest airline, announced its peak summer schedule for 2015 by placing a record number of flights on sale.

Over 79,000 flights are set to take place to and from the UK between 1 June and 6 September next year, providing 13 million seats – the most ever for easyJet for this time of year. Throughout the whole of next summer over 45 million passengers are expected to fly with the low-cost carrier.

easyJet now has bases across 11 UK airports and currently has over 700 routes on sale to destinations across Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and Russia – 370 of which originate or end in the UK.

Sophie Dekkers, easyJet’s UK Director, said: “We expect the bucket and spade routes to Spain, Portugal and the Greek Islands to be as popular as ever, or for late summer sun, Turkey, Egypt and The Canaries will be in demand.”

In addition to holidaymakers, easyJet is now turning its attention towards passengers travelling on business. Last month it launched its first ever TV campaign targeted at business travellers, and passengers travelling for business now account for more than a fifth of the airline’s customers.   www.easyjet.com
