EasyJest 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.
Starting from September 2017, EasyJet has worked with Rakuten to provide an inflight entertainment system for all the passengers flying with them. To use this facility, you should put your device on airplane mode, connect it to the Wi-Fi, and access the website here (on.easyjet.com).
The free entertainment allows you to access various movies, TV series, audiobooks, games, and even language lessons. It is also accessible in multiple languages other than English including German, Spanish, French, and Italian.
The airline also provides meals and beverages that you can either purchase on-board or prior to your flight. However not all meals and beverages may be available on your flight, while pre-ordering your meals will guarantee your selection. If you still prefer buying your meal during the flight, you can purchase 20% off voucher (£5 for £4) on their website here You can print the voucher and show it when you buy the meal to use it.
