Britain's easyJet launches platform to book partner flights”

EasyJet said that customers would be able to buy other airlines' flights on easyJet.com, and said it was the first global airline connections service by a European low fares airline.

The airline has formed a partnership with Norwegian and WestJet, offering flights to North and South America and the Far East.

The airline will also allow customers to book tickets on its site for other partner airlines.

Peter Duffy, chief commercial officer at EasyJet, said around 70m passengers that fly though an EasyJet airport each year are connecting on to other flights, mainly long haul, and nearly 200,000 EasyJet passengers a year already self-connect their EasyJet flights through Gatwick Airport. Loganair has signed up to this service and its tickets will be available on easyJet's site from next month.

The budget carrier said in a statement the Worldwide by easyJet initiative would allow passengers to connect their easyJet flight with partner airline flights.

Shares in easyJet were up 0.8% at 1,204.00 pence Wednesday, the best performer in the FTSE 100.
