easyJet has added services from Singapore Airlines and its low-fare subsidiary Scoot to its ‘Worldwide by easyJet’ connections service, connecting passengers with South East Asia.
Through the service, easyJet customers will be able to connect with South East Asia with Scoot, via Berlin Tegel, and with Singapore Airlines through Milan Malpensa airport. The service is expected to be available within the coming months.
‘Worldwide by easyJet’ launched last year as the first low-fares carrier connection service and easyJet says it will now for the first time offer customers a low-fare connection to Asia through Scoot, as well as the choice to connect with a full-service carrier through Singapore Airlines.
“We are delighted to welcome Singapore Airlines and Scoot as the newest airline partners to join ‘Worldwide by easyJet’ and provide even more choice for our customers by adding new destinations and the first full-service airline to our Worldwide platform,” said Johan Lundgren, easyJet chief executive officer. He adds: “We are pleased to see a strong appetite from partner airports and airlines to expand Worldwide across our network, allowing us to access a greater range of passengers flying across Europe.”
Lundgren continued: “Worldwide by easyJet has grown rapidly since launching almost 12 months ago. Over half of easyJet’s flights and 53 million easyJet customers will soon be able to connect to airline partner services and other easyJet flights in a single booking through our online portal.”
He highlighted that ‘Worldwide by easyJet’ continues to expand, and talks are “already far advanced with middle-eastern carriers, amongst others.”
Singapore Airlines and Scoot join the other ‘Worldwide’ partner airlines Thomas Cook, Norwegian, WestJet, Loganair, La Compagnie, Corsair, Neos and Aurigny.
