easyJet staff volunteer to help on the front line


easyJet has confirmed that during tomorrow’s ‘day of action’ extra easyJet staff have volunteered to help passengers coming from abroad into its UK airports.


More than 350 easyJet staff, including pilots, cabin crew and airline management have come forward and volunteered to help passengers during the day. They will be helping to provide passengers with information, assisting families and passengers with special needs as well as offloading luggage from the baggage belts to prevent congestion in the baggage hall in case of  immigration hall delays.

The airline plans to run a full schedule of flights and continues to work closely with the UK Borders Agency and the airports on their contingency plans.


Catherine Lynn, easyJet’s Customer and Revenue Director, said:


“Our passengers have asked us to try to keep them flying tomorrow and so we are all pulling together to try and make this happen.  We’re really pleased that hundreds of our own staff – including pilots, cabin crew and the airline’s management – have volunteered to help out. We feel it is important to keep flying so that families and businesses can continue to travel and hope to help make this as smooth as possible for them.


We will continue to work closely with the Borders Agency and our airports on contingency plans and will work hard with them to try and minimise any delays.”
