Air Transat will be partnering with low-cost carrier EasyJet and its ‘Worldwide by EasyJet’ service, which is the first global airline connections platform by a European low-cost airline. It allows passengers to book their Air Transat and EasyJet flights on one web platform, even if the two different airlines don’t sign interline or codeshare agreements.
According to Easyjet, its service offers the same sort of connectivity as a self-connect and sales partnerships through a digital hub.
The Canadian airline operates flights from London Gatwick to Calgary, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. This opens up new destination options for passengers via ‘Worldwide by EasyJet’ to Canada.
In October, EasyJet announced that Singapore Airlines and its low-cost subsidiary airline Scoot will join the ‘Worldwide by EasyJet’ service. This will allow EasyJet customers to connect to South East Asia with Singapore Airlines via Milan Malpensa. Furthermore, Scoot operates a nonstop connection to Singapore through Berlin Tegel.
Moreover, the airlines Aurigny, Corsair, La Compagnie, Loganair, Norwegian, Thomas Cook Airlines and WestJet are already part of ‘Worldwide by EasyJet’.
EasyJet will continue to sign up other airlines to ‘Worldwide by EasyJet’. According to the airline, there are talks progressing with middle and far-eastern carriers amongst others.
