easyJet has announced additional partners for its Worldwide by easyJet product, which launched this month.
Stand-alone tickets on behalf of four new partner airlines will be on sale by the end of the year.
The Italian long-haul airline NEOS is among the new carrier.
It serves a wide range of long haul leisure destinations in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and the Middle East from Italian airports including Milan Malpensa, Rome Fiumicino, Verona and Bologna.
Guernsey’s airline Aurigny will also be added, offering Channel Island services.
French carrier La Compagnie, carrying business travellers between Paris and New York, and a further French airline Corsair, which flies from Paris to long haul destinations across Africa, the Caribbean and the Indian Ocean, complete the new additions.
These new partners – which together carry nearly three million passengers every year and will open up 30 regional and long-haul destinations to easyJet’s network - operate complementary networks to easyJet and will allow easyJet passengers to easily book onward flights, for example, from Milan Malpensa to Madagascar or from London Gatwick to Guernsey.
NEOS, Aurigny, La Compagnie and Corsair will now have access to one of the biggest travel websites in Europe, easyJet.com, which had around 360 million visits in the past twelve months.
All four airlines have signed distribution partnerships to sell the partners’ standalone flights on easyJet’s website.
Peter Duffy, chief commercial office for easyJet, commented: “The response to Worldwide by easyJet has been fantastic and we are excited to be meeting more latent customer demand through today’s new partnerships.
“The take up from customers in Jersey gives us confidence that we will see similar demand from Guernsey following our partnership with Aurigny.
“Partnering with NEOS, LaCompagnie and Corsair further extends the range of destinations we can serve our European customers and we will be working with our partners to roll-out the self-connect product to relevant airports.”
