Relationship with 'easy' brand

EasyJet does not own its brand, unlike most other airlines.

For most 'easy' businesses, the business pays a specified fee to Stelios for the use of the name. However, given the strength of the EasyJet brand and the high amount of free advertising and publicity it lends to the other 'easy' businesses, it was agreed at the time of flotation that EasyJet could use the name on a perpetual license for £1.[21] Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, KBE (born 14 February 1967 in Athens) is a Greek-Cypriot born British entrepreneur and is best known for setting up easyJet, a low-cost airline. ...

Expansion

Strategy

EasyJet, like Ryanair, borrows its business model from American air carrier Southwest. Both airlines have adapted this model for the European market through further cost-cutting measures such as not selling connecting flights or providing complimentary snacks on board. The key points of this business model are high aircraft utilisation, quick turnaround times, charging for extras (such as priority boarding, hold baggage and food) and keeping operating costs low.[27] Ryanair (ISEQ: RYA, LSE: RYA, NASDAQ: RYAAY) is an Irish airline headquartered in Dublin, with its biggest operational base at London Stansted Airport in the UK.

While the two airlines share a common business idea, EasyJet's strategy differs from Ryanair's in a number of areas. EasyJet flies mainly to primary airports in the cities that it serves, while Ryanair often chooses secondary airports to reduce costs. For example, EasyJet flies to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport and Paris Orly, the primary airports in Paris, while Ryanair flies to the smaller Paris Beauvais Tillé Airport, a 75 minute bus journey from Paris. EasyJet also focuses on attracting business passengers by offering convenient services such as the option to transfer on to an earlier flight for free.[27][28] Ryanair (ISEQ: RYA, LSE: RYA, NASDAQ: RYAAY) is an Irish airline headquartered in Dublin, with its biggest operational base at London Stansted Airport in the UK.

EasyJet was prevented from launching its Milan Malpensa-Olbia route in April 2006 by the Italian aviation authorities.[30] The route had been assigned to Meridiana as a public service obligation route. The Italian authorities had granted exclusivity in return for fixed low fares for Sardinian residents on routes from Milan and Rome to the Sardinian airports of Alghero, Cagliari and Olbia.

EasyJet Airbus A319 takes off

EasyJet initially operated Boeing 737 aircraft exclusively. In October 2002 it broke with its previous philosophy of operating just one aircraft type (a strategy popularised by Southwest Airlines) by ordering 120 Airbus A319 aircraft (plus 120 options) with CFM56-5B engines.[34][10] Image File history File links Download high resolution version (1024x695, 219 KB) Summary Copyright Tom Collins. ...

Through the acquisition of GB Airways, EasyJet will inherit nine Airbus A320 and six Airbus A321 aircraft. These aircraft will be operated by former GB Airways crew at London Gatwick and Manchester for the summer 2008 period. This gives the airline some time to evaluate the feasibility of operating these larger gauge aircraft. Based on this evaluation, EasyJet may decide to dispose of these aircraft or to retain them and integrate them into the existing fleet. EasyJet may also decide to convert its Airbus options to the larger gauge aircraft.[7][23][25][26] GB Airways is a UK airline based at London Gatwick Airport. ...

Services

Booking

Initially booking was by telephone only, with all EasyJet aircraft painted with the booking telephone number. There is no incentive for travel agents to sell EasyJet bookings because there is no commission, a standard practice for the low cost carriers.[3][10] Flying machine redirects here. ... A travel agency is a store where individuals or families go to buy travel packages. ...


In December 1997, Russell Sheffield of Tableau, one of EasyJet's Design and Adverting Agencies, suggested to Stelios that he should consider trialling a website for direct bookings. Stelios's reply was 'The Internet is for nerds, it will never make money for my business!'. However Tony Anderson, EasyJet's Marketing Director saw the potential and approved a website trial involving putting a different telephone reservations number on the website, to track success. Once Stelios saw the results he changed his mind, and EasyJet commissioned Tableau to partner with them develop an e-commerce website capable of offering real-time online booking from April 1998 — the first low cost carrier to do so in Europe.[10][41][42] 1997 is a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 1998 is a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year of the Ocean. ...


Internet bookings were priced cheaper than booking over the phone, to reflect the reduced call centre costs and the aircraft were repainted with the web address. Within a year over 50% of bookings were made using the web site, by April 2004 the figure had jumped to 98%. Now, flights can only be booked over the Internet except during the 2 weeks immediately before the flight when telephone booking is also available.[10] A very large collections call centre in Lakeland, FL. A call centre or call center (see spelling differences) is a centralised office used for the purpose of receiving and transmitting a large volume of requests by telephone. ...


Cabin and onboard Services

EasyJet Airbus A319 cabin

EasyJet's aircraft cabins are configured in a single class, high density layout.[43] The Airbus A320 is a short to medium range commercial passenger aircraft manufactured by Airbus. ... Flying machine redirects here. ...


The airline's Boeing 737-700 aircraft carry 149 passengers plus three cabin crew, and its Airbus A319 aircraft carry 156 passengers plus four cabin crew. A typical Airbus A319 carries approximately 140 passengers in a single class configuration, but as EasyJet do not serve meals the airline opted for smaller galleys and had a lavatory installed in unused space at the rear of the aircraft. The airline's 29 inch seat pitch allowed for the installation of 156 seats. Due to this high density seating arrangement, EasyJet's Airbus A319 aircraft have two pairs of overwing exits, instead of the standard one pair configuration found on most Airbus A319 aircraft, to satisfy safety requirements.[32][40][39] 737 in new Boeing Colors. ...

EasyJet does not provide complimentary meals or beverages on board its flights. Passengers may purchase items on board from the 'easyJetshop'. Products include sandwiches, toasted sandwiches, pizza slices, chocolate, snacks, hot drinks, soft drinks and alcoholic drinks. Onboard sales are an important part of the airline's ancillary revenue. EasyJet also sells gifts such as fragrances, cosmetics and EasyJet branded items onboard, as well as tickets for airport transfer services.[3]


EasyJet does not provide in-flight entertainment in order to keep aircraft weight and costs at a minimum. Passengers may travel with portable entertainment devices for use in-flight. EasyJet provides an in-flight magazine, published monthly, containing articles of interest to its customers and destination guides.[44]


EasyJetHotels and EasyJetHolidays

On 14 December 2004, EasyJet and Hotelopia, a subsidiary of First Choice Holidays, launched the co-branded EasyJetHotels accommodation booking service. EasyJetHotels offers accommodation products throughout the EasyJet network. Customers booking flights through the EasyJet website are provided with quotes for a number of hotels at their destination. Alternatively, customers can book accommodation separately at the EasyJetHotels website.[45][46] is the 348th day of the year (349th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Controversy

EasyJet's success arguably paved the way for the boom in cheap air travel in the late 1990s and early 2000s (though they were not the first no frills carrier, nor the first large one in Europe). Image File history File links Size of this preview: 800 × 599 pixelsFull resolution (2288 × 1712 pixel, file size: 1. ... Image File history File links Size of this preview: 800 × 599 pixelsFull resolution (2288 × 1712 pixel, file size: 1. ... boarding (ice hockey) boarding (ship) Categories: Disambiguation ... The Airbus A320 is a short to medium range commercial passenger aircraft manufactured by Airbus. ...


This has led EasyJet being accused, amongst other no frills carriers, of contributing to global warming through the high carbon emissions of aircraft. Low-cost carriers (and their trade association, ELFAA) argue that they tend to operate newer, more fuel-efficient aircraft than many full-service network airlines, and also that their point-to-point services use less fuel than connecting flights through a hub. (Most of the hub-and-spoke systems run by traditional full-service network airlines, such as Air France-KLM, British Airways and Lufthansa as well as their US legacy carrier counterparts, generally rely on a range of mostly profitable long-haul flights being "fed" by a large number of often only marginally profitable or wholly loss-making short-haul connecting flights via their main hub airports. The reason the network carriers "feed" their long-haul services with short-haul connecting traffic is to shore up the profitability of the long-haul flights, most of which would not attract sufficient traffic on their own to be profitable.) Global warming refers to the increase in the average temperature of the Earths near-surface air and oceans in recent decades and its projected continuation. ... ELFAA stands for European Low Fares Airline Association, an organization formed in 2002 to represent low-fare airlines. ... KLM Boeing 737-300. ... For the 1930s airline of similar name, see British Airways Ltd. ... Deutsche Lufthansa AG (ISIN: DE0008232125) (pronounced ) is the second largest airline in Europe (after Air France - KLM). ...


Against this, the no frills carriers' aggressive price-based marketing has driven a rapid growth in their passenger volumes, so the negative environmental effects of aviation are growing rapidly.[49] In common with many other forms of transport, aircraft engines emit polluting gases, contribute to global warming, and cause noise pollution. ...


Apart from the initial pair of 737-200s leased from GB Airways - the airline has only ever operated new aircraft, either 737-300s, 737-700s or Airbus A319s. The newer aircraft are advertised to produce lower emissions and be more environmentally friendly.[50] GB Airways is a UK airline based at London Gatwick Airport. ... The Boeing 737 is an American short to medium range, single aisle, narrow body jet airliner. ... The Boeing 737 is an American short to medium range, single aisle, narrow body jet airliner. ... The Airbus A320 family of short-to-medium range commercial passenger aircraft are manufactured by Airbus S.A.S.. Family members include the A318, A319, A320, and A321, as well as the ACJ business jet. ...


EasyJet has also come under criticism in Germany for not observing EU-law 261/2004. In the case of cancellation, passengers had the right to be reimbursed within one week. In 2006, EasyJet had experienced difficulties in refunding tickets in a timely fashion. Passengers occasionally had to wait longer for reimbursement of their expenses.[51][52]


EasyJet is a major supporter of the plans to replace the Air Passenger Duty (APD) tax in the UK with a new tax that varies depending on distance travelled and aircraft type.[53] Air Passenger Duty (APD) is an excise duty which is charged on the carriage of passengers flying from a United Kingdom airport on an aircraft that has an authorised take off weight of more than ten tonnes or more than twenty seats for passengers. ...

Easyjet - Even Cheaper Flights than Before! (381 words)
Easyjet is a great low cost airline, with cheap flights to many destinations across Europe and the UK.
For example, we have used Easyjet to fly to our trading offices in Cannes, near Nice, and also flown with them to party destinations in Ibiza, Benidorm, Kavos and Gran Canaria.
Unfortunately Easyjet doesn't fly to Istanbul, even though the city is half in Europe.
Easyjet Pays Google 18,000 Gbp A Day - High Rankings Search Engine Optimization Forum (827 words)
easyJet is one of the two leading UK low-cost carriers.
It's interesting to see that the low cost European airlines like Easyjet and Ryanair are making oodles of revenue (and vast profits) while bigger carriers are not doing so well.
If easyjet didn't bid on their own, someone else would and take many of those clicks.
