The British low-cost airline will allow booking long-haul flights of other companies from London Gatwick Airport.
EasyJet announced today that it will start a new service called Worldwide, allowing passengers to book long-haul flights from London Gatwick Airport (LGW).
The service is in collaboration with other low cost airlines such as Norwegian and WestJet Airlines, and will allow for example, that a passenger flying from Aberdeen in Scotland, to another destination as New York making a connection in Gatwick, can book both flights in the website of the airline.
In the case that a passenger loses the connection would be relocated in the next flight that departs to destination.
“Seventy million passengers travelling through an airport of easyJet each year connect with other flights, mainly long-distance, and it is this segment of the market that facilitate Worldwide from EasyJet,” said the Managing Director of EasyJet, Carolyn McCall.
There is the intention to add other hubs to the plan, as other airlines in Asia to join the service.
