EasyJet's new initiative to grow corporate business

EasyJet has launched a new industry team that will focus on developing the travel management company sector throughout Europe.

It will have team members located in strategic markets to enhance its partnerships with the corporate travel sector, which represents more than 20% of its business.

The new team will be led by Iain Withers, easyJet's head of industry.

Anthony Drury, easyJet's head of business said:  "EasyJet was one of the first low cost airlines to engage the trade and has worked with TMCs for more than five years.

"We continue to evolve our TMC offering to ensure that the sector has the tools, knowledge and dedicated support to continue to support our mutual corporate clients and their travellers with their travel investment. 

"This new team will take a consultative approach and work with TMC partners to support business customers and travellers."

EasyJet is also launching a new online training academy for sales agents, improved customer service offerings and greater support on the ground.
