Flight of Success: easyJet Reaches 250 Million Passengers at Gatwick

easyJet offers free flights to lucky couple as it marks a quarter-billion passengers from Gatwick.

easyJet, the largest airline operating out of London Gatwick, has reached a significant milestone by transporting 250 million passengers since it began flights from the airport in December 1999. The airline celebrated this achievement by awarding a fortunate couple from Crawley, Amy Lovegrove and Richard Hansen, with complimentary return flights from Gatwick to Rhodes.

Since its inaugural flight to Geneva nearly 25 years ago, easyJet has expanded significantly, making Gatwick its largest base within its network. Today, the airline manages a fleet of 68 aircraft from Gatwick, offering flights to 102 destinations and transporting nearly 20 million passengers annually.

In the past year alone, easyJet has broadened its horizons by introducing routes to four new destinations, including Calvi in France, Skiathos in Greece, Akureyri in Iceland, and Salerno in Italy, enhancing travel options for customers seeking unique and exciting holiday spots.

Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager, expressed pride in this landmark event. “We are so proud to be in London Gatwick marking a key milestone as we celebrate flying 250 million passengers to and from the airport. Our first flights from the airport took off for the first time almost 25 years ago and since then we’ve been committed to Gatwick in providing great value fares and convenient connections for our customers from across the South East whether they’re travelling for business or leisure.”

Mark Johnston, Chief Operating Officer at London Gatwick, also commented on the milestone. “easyJet’s presence at London Gatwick is significant and we will continue working collaboratively with them to further grow a diverse choice of routes and deliver a great airport experience to passengers.”

easyJet’s journey began with a flight to Geneva, which remains one of the airline’s most popular destinations from Gatwick, along with Amsterdam, Paris, Milan, and Faro.
