EasyJet goes global with new connections service

The new service replicates traditional interline and codeshare agreements with self-connect and sales partnerships through a digital hub.

EasyJet has partnered with Norwegian and WestJet for its so-called Worldwide by EasyJet service, which will offer flights to North and South America and Singapore from Gatwick.

Ryanair launched a similar service, although on a smaller scale, with Air Europa earlier this year.

The company has plans to sign on more partners, with talks already under way for connections with middle and far-eastern airlines. For this, Scotland's Loganair Ltd is signed up as a further launch partner, and their tickets will be available on from next month.

Peter Duffy, Chief Commercial Office for easyJet, commented: "The way we have designed Worldwide by easyJet means that we can profitably access a major new pool of customers without undermining easyJet's operating model and industry leading punctuality". Nearly 200k easyJet passengers a year already self-connect their easyJet flights through Gatwick Airport.

All of this new connectivity has been enabled by technology partner Dohop.

The Gatwick Connect scheme allows passengers to pick up their bags and drop them off at a transfer desk before going through security for their next flight.

The airline will also allow customers to book tickets on its site for other partner airlines.
