No toilet fees on easyJet flights


After widespread criticism was voiced over Ryanair’s decision to start charging individuals to go to the toilet on their flights alternative budget airline easyJet have revealed that they are not looking to follow suit. In a court hearing over expansion plans and business models Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, founder of easyJet, said that it would be “stupid” to start such charges.



The view comes after Ryanair boss Michel O’Leary revealed that his airline was to incorporate coin operated toilets on cheap flights, leading to widespread outcry amongst passengers who used the company to travel cheaply. However Mr Haji-Loannou, who holds a stake of 38per cent in easyJet, said that their low cost airline had no such plans condemning the Ryanair plans as stupid.


Flying to cities across 26 countries from a range of UK airports including Liverpool, Bristol, Newcastle and London Gatwick, easyJet has become the embodiment of low cost air travel, allowing passengers cheap flights with no frills to a huge array of destinations. However Sir Stelios is currently embroiled in a high court battle with his associates over regulations pertaining to the company’s core and no-core business. Whilst easyJet associates argue that non-core fee’s, those such as credit card charges, food costs and check-in fees, are as vital to the airline as seat fares, Sir Stelios remains firm that fares are the largest income pushing for less flexibility such as no charges for small children who may, or may not, occupy spaces. And whilst the court battle continues, a positive result by Sir Stelios could see easyJet rebranded as the shareholder withdraws the rights to the name.
