Cheap easyJet Flights
easyJet is a member of the easyGroup, which is owned by Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou; with other members of the “easy” family, such as the easyCar car rental company and the easyMoney credit card company, there is a licensing fee for using the “easy” name which must be paid to Sir Stelios. Because easyJet lends an enormous amount of strength to the brand, however, it has been allowed to use the name royalty-free. The entire model of the “easy” family of services is that by taking away the frills of a service, they are able to offer their services for much less money than other providers.
easyJet and its main rival, Ireland-based Ryanair, are Europe’s largest low-cost airlines. The principal difference between the two airlines is probably the airports they fly into. Whereas Ryanair saves landing costs by using secondary (or even tertiary) airports, easyJet flies to primary airports for the most part. Prices on the two airlines are pretty similar, when you include additional transportation costs and fees onto Ryanair’s fares, but it’s worth comparing prices for yourself.
