Easyjet news - Music to their ears
Thursday 20, January 2011
easyJet, Europe’s leading low-fares airline, today highlighted that its musician friendly hand baggage policy is one of the best within the airline industry.
Over recent months the airline has been in dialogue with the Incorporated Society of Musicians as to how we can best accommodate musicians and their instruments onboard our aircraft. Musical instruments up to 30 x 117 x 38cm in size, allowing them to comfortably fit within the overhead lockers, will be accepted for carriage in the cabin. Instruments which fit into this category include, for example: guitar, violin, viola, piccolo, flute, clarinet, bugle and trumpet. Larger instruments such as cellos can also be accepted in the cabin by special arrangement.
Dana Dunne, easyJet’s Chief Commercial Officer said: “We are proud to support Europe’s rich musical heritage, and recognise that many professional musicians fly to festivals and concerts all over Europe. We value their business and believe that easyJet’s policy will be music to their ears.”
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.
