EasyJet to fly record number of passengers this summer

EasyJet is set to fly a record 9.4 million passengers to and from UK airports this summer, starting from tomorrow.

Numbers will peak on Friday when 312,000 passengers will travel on 1,970 flights across easyJet's network as the school holidays start.

In the UK alone, more than 100,000 passengers will fly with easyJet, with Majorca, Malaga and Alicante the top destinations.

However, the airline said it still has more than 125,000 seats available in August at £50 or less across the network including some key holiday routes.

UK country director Neil Slaven said: "Year after year the summer getaway continues to grow and this year is no exception. We are seeing high demand across our route network peaking today with more than 300,000 customers choosing to fly with us on their summer holidays.

This summer easyJet will fly in excess of 750,000 families out of UK airports on their holidays and earlier this week the airline launched its summer flying libraries initiative.

The easyJet lending libraries sees 60,000 copies of children's books in seven languages made available in passenger seat-pockets across its fleet.
