easyJet reached an important milestone in its history when it welcomed, for the first time in any rolling 12-month period, its 50 millionth passenger for such as period.
The cumulative total for February 2010 to the end of January 2011 actually reached 50,320,074.
To mark the milestone Laura Tabourin, who lives in London and regularly uses the carrier to visit her family in France, became easyJet’s 50 millionth passenger during that stated time period. She was travelling to Bordeaux from London Luton Airport and was presented with a bottle of champagne, and given a flight voucher for two people to travel anywhere on the easyJet network.
“To carry 50 million passengers each year is a great achievement and is testament to the great service our people deliver on board,” remarked easyJet’s chief executive Carolyn McCall. “easyJet has a strong position delivering low-fares, flying people to where they want to go to, at convenient times with friendly service. We aim to provide an easier travel experience for all our passengers, and look forward to our continued growth over the coming years.”
