easyJet has announced new flexible fare tickets aimed at business travellers which will give passengers unlimited flexibility to change their flight up to two hours before the scheduled departure time.
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 benefit from automatic speedy boarding, no booking fees and a checked in hold bag at no extra cost.
The carrier says the flexible fares will stay true to its commitment to low fares. “They will be competitively priced and are expected to be far cheaper than those offered by the legacy carriers,” easyJet announced.
“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,” easyJet CEO Carolyn McCall explained. “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 flexible fares will be initially available only through business booking channels, including global distribution systems (GDSs) and self booking tools used by business travel companies and at a later date will be accessible to all passengers through easyJet.com.
