EasyJet will now let you book long-haul flights with other carriers

British budget carrier easyJet PLC will start offering connecting services to long-haul carriers flying to the USA and other destinations expanding the network of cities global passengers can reach on a single ticket.

The budget carrier said in a statement the Worldwide by easyJet initiative would allow passengers to connect their easyJet flight with partner airline flights.

The destinations which can now be booked on easyJet.com include New York, Los Angeles, Orlando, Toronto and Singapore.

Passengers taking connecting flights via London Gatwick - such as those travelling from Aberdeen to NY - will be able to book the entire trip on easyJet's website.

North Korea says will fully reject new United Nations resolution on sanctions
The new measures target major goods that North Korea buys and sells, but they don't go as far as the USA wanted. The ship then docked in Vladivostok, Russia, before finally going to China to presumably unload its cargo.

"Our own customers and those who fly with other airlines, short and long haul, have also asked us to make it easier to connect with easyJet flights and this simple booking platform makes it easy for them to do so". The tie-up between easyJet and its airline partners seeks to replicate that model.

EasyJet passengers will be able to buy other airlines' flights on easyJet.com and will also initially be able to connect onto long-haul flights provided by Norwegian Air Shuttle and WestJet at London Gatwick using the airport's Gatwick Connect scheme.

EasyJet beat rival Ryanair Holdings PLC, Europe's largest airline by passenger numbers, to the announcement. The airline says it will not hold flights for connecting passengers.

EasyJet said it is rolling out the service first at London's Gatwick Airport, one of Norwegian's principal hubs for long-haul flights.

It plans to expand to other key airports in Europe such as Milan Malpensa, Geneva, Amsterdam, Paris Charles de Gaulle and Barcelona.

For passengers, there are some particularities. Worldwide by Easyjet is subject to a 2 hour 30 minute "Minimum Connection Time", which will give customers plenty of time to transfer between flights and/or terminals. You'll still need to transfer your own baggage between connecting flights.

Seats on the new services are available from today.

Peter Duffy, chief commercial officer at easyJet, said 70 million passengers now begin journeys at easyJet airports, and make a stop before travelling across continents, and that easyJet wanted a slice of that market.
