Wednesday 22, September 2010
easyJet, the UK’s largest airline, is proud to announce that it has won the prestigious Best Low-Fares Airline award for the 10th consecutive year, at this year’s Business Traveller magazine awards in London.
This award, based on readers votes from around the world, has been running for over 20 years, and easyJet has beaten off competition from the likes of Air Asia, Air Berlin, BMI Baby, Jet2, and the guys from Dublin.
easyJet’s Chief Executive Carolyn McCall, said: "To be voted Best Low-Fares Airline by the world’s travelling public for ten years in a row is a huge honour and testament to the hard work and dedication of our people. This achievement demonstrates what a powerful product and brand easyJet is."
easyJet is now Europe's No. 1 air transport network due to its leading presence on Europe’s top 100 routes and at Europe’s 50 largest airports. More than 300 million Europeans live within one hour’s drive of an easyJet airport, more than any other airline.
By offering the lowest fares to the most convenient airports, this year easyJet will grow profitably by 10% and will carry 50 million passengers on over 500 routes between 123 airports in 29 countries.
easyJet is the UK’s largest and Europe’s fourth largest airline by passenger numbers. In 2009, the airline carried 28 million passengers in the UK and 46 million in total. On average easyJet flies passengers 1100 km for just ₤45/€50.
easyJet takes sustainability seriously. Over the last 10 years, the airline has reduced CO2 emissions per passenger km by 25% by investing in the latest technology. Its fleet of nearly 200 state-of-the-art aircraft is only 3.5 years old.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
