The easyJet flexible fare has been specifically designed to meet the needs of the business traveller
(PRWeb UK) November 17, 2010
The new business fares will offer cheap flights for business travellers with the added flexiblility of being able to change their flights up to 2 hours before departure, one of the key features of business flying.
Passengers can make unlimited changes within a four week time window - one week before and up to three weeks after the original booked travel date. Passengers booking an easyJet flexible fare will also get easyjet's speedy boarding upgrade included in the price of their flight as well as a checked bag in the hold and no booking fees at the point of sale.
The easyJet flexible fares will stay true to easyJet's commitment to cheap flights. They will be competitively priced and are expected to be far cheaper than those offered by the legacy carriers.
Carolyn McCall, easyJet CEO said: "We have seen a growing trend of business travellers choosing to fly easyJet. It's easy to see why - easyJet has the best European network, we fly to main airports, and maintain low fares for passengers. The easyJet flexible fare has been specifically designed to meet the needs of the business traveller, making it even more attractive to choose to fly with easyJet."
The new flexible fares will be initially available only through business booking channels, including Global Distribution Systems and self booking tools used by business travel companies and at a later date will be accessible to all passengers through easyJet.com.
A full marketing and promotional campaign will take place in the first quarter of 2011.
