Easyjet launches new fare for corporate travellers

Easyjet has launched a new 'inclusive fare' for corporate passengers and travel bookers, plus four new routes to Europe.

The new fare, which is part of a wider strategy to boost corporate travel, will not be available directly on Easyjet's website and will only be accessible through booking systems connected directly to Easyjet through an API link.

This follows Easyjet's decision in May to prioritise boarding for business travellers. 

The new fare will include a 20kg hold bag and seat selection, with Easyjet insisting the overall price will be cheaper than booking the different elements separately.

Ruth Spratt, head of UK Sales for Easyjet, said: "We are really pleased to be able to offer an inclusive fare for the first time - part of our campaign to make our flights easier to book and more attractive to large corporates.

"It will help us to compete even more effectively with the legacy carriers, as well as providing further choice and value for the 10 million-plus corporate travellers who choose to fly Easyjet every year.

"We are confident the launch of the inclusive fare will further strengthen our appeal to large corporates."

The new fare will sit between Easyjet’s existing standard fares and its Flexi Fares, which includes extra elements such as Speedy Boarding, fast-track security access through airports and date changes within a four-week window.

Easyjet has also added four new routes from UK airports to its summer 2014 schedule. These include flights from Gatwick to the Romanian capital Bucharest and Stansted to Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, from March 30 2014.

The airline is also planning new routes from Manchester to Venice and Liverpool to Larnaca, Cyprus, for next summer.
