The airline operates under ICAO code EZY and IATA code U2. It operates not only domestic but also international routes, flying to 132 airports in 31 countries.To list some of the company’s international GB flight destinations are France, German, Greece, Sweden, and Switzerland. The low-cost model of the airline allows it to really grow. Currently not only is it known as the biggest low-cost airline, it is also named the best-value airline in the UK by Skyscanner in 2018. The airline’s growth can be attributed to the low flight cost that attracts customers. EasyJet also partners up with other airlines to better serve its passengers through long-haul connection or partner direct flights to other cities. Their newest airline partner is Virgin Atlantic, although they have also partnered up with Norwegian, WestJet, Thomas Cook, Corsair, La Compagnie, Loganair, Neos, and Gatwick Connect in their EasyJet Worldwide program.
HistoryEasyJest was established in 1995 by the Greek businessman, Stelios Haji-Ioannaou. It started flying with two leased Boeing 737-200 aircrafts in two routes: London Luton Airport to Glasgow and Edinburgh. In 1996 their first aircraft was delivered, allowing them to start their international flight route to Amsterdam. Despite having been operating for two years, until 1997 the airline actually had not operated their flights. All flights before October 1997 were operated by GB Airways and AirFoyle because they had not received Air Operator’s Certificate. In March 1998 EasyJet purchased 40% stake in TEA Basle, a Swiss charter airline. The airline was then renamed EasyJet Switzerland, as its first franchise. This purchase was followed in 2002 when they purchase its rival airline, Go Fly. Their acquisition of Go Fly almost doubled their Boeing 737-300 fleet, other than getting three new UK bases: Bristol Airport, East Midlands Airport, and London Stansted Airport. In the same year, EasyJet opened a new base at Gatwick Airport, followed by other bases in Germany, France, Italy and Spain. This helps the airline establish their market presence in the continental Europe. In 2007, it purchased another airline to expand its operation. This time it was the GB Airways, and EasyJet could establish a base at Manchester Airport. In June 2011, its eleventh base at the London Southend Airport was opened where it offers flights to Alicante, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Belfast, Malaga, Jersey, Faro, Palma de Majorca, and Ibiza. It was promoted to the FTSE 100 and launched its 100th route from Gatwick Airport, offering passengers direct flights from London to New York in March 2013. In 2017, it opened a new headquarter in Austria to operate after Brexit, and EasyJet also announced that it will lease 25 Airbus A320 previously used by Air Berlin. The aircrafts will be used to operate its European network, based at the Berlin-Tegel Airport.
