easyJet seeks to boost business offering with Flexi fare

easyJet has confirmed its new Flexi fare will be available to all via easyJet.com from today.

The tickets will give passengers unlimited flexibility to change the date of their flights up to two hours before the scheduled departure time.

Passengers booking an easyJet flexi fare will also benefit from automatic speedy boarding, no booking fees and a checked in hold bag included at no extra cost

The new Flexi fares were initially available only through business booking channels, including Global Distribution Systems (GDS) and self booking tools used by business travel companies.

Passengers can make unlimited date changes within a four week time window - one week before and up to three weeks after the original booked travel date.

easyJet chief executive, Carolyn McCall, said: “We have seen a growing trend of business travellers choosing to fly easyJet.

“By allowing business travellers to book flexible fares on easyJet.com we will ensure that they are always getting the best available price with the flexibility they need.”

The easyJet Flexi fares start at £99.

The addition of easyJet Flexi to easyJet.com will be supported with a substantial marketing campaign launching later this week in both the UK and across Europe.
