No-frills airline easyJet has teamed up with the lowcosttravelgroup to launch easyJet Holidays, offering consumers competitively priced, flexible holidays.

Stretching across the airline’s extensive network of routes, consumers will not only benefit from fully protected holiday deals with a brand they trust but also from Lowcost’s range of high quality, great value accommodation and transfer services.

Carolyn McCall, chief executive officer at easyJet said: “An overhaul of the holiday market has been a long time coming. Consumers want more value for their money and more freedom when arranging their holidays.

“We are confident that the combination of flexibility, exceptional value and choice, together with a state of the art website and call centre, will ensure easyJet Holidays becomes a leading brand in the holiday market within three years.”

easyJet Holidays is seeking to revolutionise the UK travel industry

easyJet flies from 18 UK airports to destinations across Europe, operating on over 540 routes with over 196 aircraft across 30 countries.

It operates more flights than any other British airline.

Lowcosttravelgroup will provide over 10,000 hotels ranging from luxury five star all inclusive deals to great value three star options with private and shuttle transfer options across all of easyJet’s European, North African and Middle Eastern destinations.

This combination will provide customers with the choice and flexibility to enable them to tailor their holidays and city breaks to the dates and times they want to travel, no matter how many days that involves.

In an interview with Breaking Travel News Paul Evans, chief executive of lowcosttravelgroup said: “We are a perfect match for easyJet.

“There is a great deal of revenue on offer here; with out booking system – Intuitive – we can scientifically improve the easyJet holiday offering.

“Culturally the two companies are also a good fit, both are neutral brands. We can offer everything from two to five star properties.

“They have a ruthless efficiency in their operation, tremendous consistency.”
