easyJet help to get British troops home


easyJet has today launched a special rescue fare for British troops who are being delayed coming home from the front line.


Those traveling via Cyprus can go to one of the island’s two airports (Paphos and Larnaca), between six to two hours before an easyJet flight and purchase a ‘rescue rate’ ticket.


Tickets will be priced at £43 and will include a kitbag at no extra charge.


Paul Simmons, UK General Manager said: “This is about getting our troops home as soon as possible if things go wrong with their intended travel plans. The special time with friends and family is vital to those serving in the forces and we’re happy that we can help in some small way.”


  • The rescue fare will be available for a initial six week trial period
  • Tickets will be offered subject to availability
  • Tickets will cost £43 for a one way fare to any UK airport that easyJet flies to from Cyprus
  • Tickets can only be purchased by troops transferring through Cyprus
  • easyJet Cyprus routes:

Paphos – London Gatwick, Luton, Bristol and Manchester
Larnaca – London Gatwick
