EasyJet has teamed up with Singapore Airlines and its low-cost subsidiary, Scoot, to connect travellers with South East Asia; the airlines are to join easyJet’s ‘Worldwide by easyJet’ programme, a low-fares carrier connection service.
‘Worldwide by easyJet’ was launched last year as the first ever low-fares carrier connection service; the service can now offer a low-fare connection to Asia through Scoot, as well as a full-service option through Singapore Airlines.
Scoot connections will take place via Berlin Tegel Airport, with customers connecting via Milan Malpensa for flights to Asia on Singapore Airlines.
easyJet’s chief executive officer, Johan Lundgren said: “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.
He continued: “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.”
Scoot and Singapore Airlines will join eight other carriers, Thomas Cook, Norwegian, WestJet, Loganair, La Compagnie, Corsair, and Neos and Aurigny, in easyJet’s ‘Worldwide by easyJet’ scheme.
