EasyJet (Real World) Information;
EasyJet is a British airline, operating under the low-cost carrier model, based at London Luton Airport. It operates domestic and international scheduled services on over 820 routes in more than 30 countries.
EasyJet has seen expansion since its establishment in 1995, having grown through a combination of acquisitions and base openings fuelled by consumer demand for low-cost air travel. The airline, along with associate company easyJet Switzerland, operates more than 200 aircraft, mostly Airbus A319.
It has 28 bases across Europe, the largest being Gatwick. In 2014 the airline carried more than 65 million passengers, making it the second-largest airline in Europe by number of passengers carried, behind Ryanair.
EasyJet was featured in the television series Airline broadcast on ITV which followed the airline's operations at London Luton and later at other bases. In November 2016, ITN Productions announced a new TV series to be broadcast on ITV in 2017 exploring what it takes to become a pilot at the airline. The current working title of the series is "easyJet: Inside the Cockpit" and will feature unprecedented access to the easyJet pilot training scheme using unique, in-cockpit footage.
In July 2017 easyJet announced it would open a new European headquarters in Austria to enable it to operate after Brexit.
On 28 October 2017, easyJet announced it will lease 25 A320 former Air Berlin aircraft to operate across easyJet Europe's network, under its European AOC. Several of these aircraft will be based at Berlin-Tegel Airport, where easyJet is taking over some of Air Berlin's old services. Previously EasyJet only operated from Berlin Schönefeld Airport.
