easyJet annual passengers get high. easyJet the low cost airline, announced this week it has carried more than 60 million passengers in the 12 months up to 31st May 2013.
Since it was founded in November 1995 easyJet first took to the skies with just two aircraft flying between two domestic UK destinations. Eighteen years on, the airline now operates 212 aircraft flying to 137 airports in 33 countries spanning Europe and North Africa.
Carolyn McCall, easyJet’s CEO said: “We are proud to be celebrating this landmark achievement of flying over 60m passengers across our network for the first time in one year. “It’s a testament to the hard work and dedication of everybody at easyJet.
“Our success lies in the fact that we provide low fares and friendly service on modern, punctual aircraft across a network that offers a choice of over 600 routes.”
McCall has been instrumental in changing easyJet’s image since she arrived in the post. Recent improvements have included pre-allocated seating, making the misery of the boarding fiasco long associated with easyJet’s previous regime a thing of the past.
