Easyjet in Cranfield deal

Marking the imminent arrival of its 20th birthday year, easyJet has signed a three-year strategic partnership with Cranfield University, which specialises in aviation and aerospace, to work together on projects that could decide the future shape of commercial air travel.

Cranfield students have been asked to provide an insight into what aviation might look like in 2035 with a view to identifying what pioneering advances and innovations might come along to influence the next 20 years of flying.

Easyjet said the new partnership would aim to build on the traditions of innovation shared by both by collaborating through the exchange of innovative ideas and knowledge, insight and research and in the areas of employment and learning.

There is already a core group of Cranfield University alumni at easyJet and CEO Carolyn McCall was awarded an honorary Doctor of Science degree from the institution last year. She said: "On the eve of our 20th anniversary, we are looking forward to seeing what the next 20 years could bring and believe that a strong mutually beneficial relationship between two leading organisations in aviation innovation will generate lasting benefits for the next generation of aviation experts."
