Easyjet expands beyond EU

From this summer Easyjet will be taking its customers to Marrakech, Istanbul and Rijeka, Croatia’s third-largest city. Over the last ten years the airline has brought low-fares to 18 countries in Europe and expects to carry in the region of 35m passengers this year. Today, about one-third of Europe’s population live within one hour of an Easyjet airport. The three destinations are expected to prove popular with both business and leisure passengers. With the new services Easyjet becomes the first major European low-fares airline to start services from London to the most vibrant cities of Turkey and Morocco. Easyjet chief executive Andrew Harrison said: “This is probably our most significant expansion since the start of our new routes to Central and Eastern Europe in May 2004. Easyjet continues to seize opportunities and to stay ahead of the industry – both geographically and technically, as highlighted by our recent introduction of on-line check-in. “Croatia, Turkey and Morocco are forging an ever-closer relationship with the UK and Europe. As a consequence, the demand for low-fares to these countries is growing quickly, and Easyjet will be in a unique position to benefit from this development.”
