'Worldwide by easyJet' goes live

EasyJet has officially launched 'Worldwide by easyJet' following its new partnerships with Norwegian and WestJet.

The website will allow customers to connect via Gatwick to destinations worldwide, with plans to extend this to routes served by other airlines.

EasyJet said talks are already 'far advanced with middle-eastern and far eastern carriers amongst others'.

As well as adding partners at Gatwick, it also plans to expand to other key easyJet airports in Europe such as Milan Malpensa, Geneva, Amsterdam, Paris Charles De Gaulle and Barcelona.

The website will launch with destinations in the US, Canada, South America and Singapore and seats are now available.

"Legacy airlines have traditionally offered connectivity through costly and complex interline and codeshare agreements and procedures," said a statement from easyJet.

"But with Worldwide by easyJet these will be replicated by self-connect and sales partnerships through a digital, virtual hub which will offer the same sort of connectivity but more simply and efficiently."

EasyJet is also starting to sell stand-alone tickets on behalf of partner airlines alongside the connectivity product on

Loganair has signed up as a further launch partner and its tickets will be available from next month.

EasyJet chief commercial officer Peter Duffy said: "The way we have designed Worldwide by easyJet means that we can profitably access a major new pool of customers without undermining easyJet's operating model and punctuality.

"We know there is a real customer demand for making flight connections on easyJet easier. Almost 200k easyJet passengers a year already self-connect their easyJet flights through Gatwick Airport. That's around 1% of our passengers at the airport and that doesn't include those connecting between easyJet and long haul flights.

"We are delighted with the partners who have signed up for our launch today. We are confident it will be popular with customers and look forward to announcing more partners in the near future."
