EasyJet is a low-cost airline based at London Luton airport.

The airline started operations in November 1995, having been founded by Stelios Haji-loannou, with 2 leased Boeing 737s flying from Luton to Edinburgh and Glasgow.

The airlines strategy was to make flying as affordable as possible and encouraged travellers to cut out the travel agent. To this end, EasyJet was amongst the first airlines to offer online ticketless booking.

In 1998 EasyJet bought a 40% stake in TEA Switzerland and renamed it Easyjet Switzerland, then in 2002 EasyJet acquired GoFly, the low cost airline that had been setup by British Airways in 1998 as a rival, greatly increasing the size of the operations.

The originally operated on the principal of using only one type of aircraft that could be used on any route, choosing the Boeing 737, but then replaced these with Airbus A319s.

Easyjet Aquired GB Airways in 2008 and their Airbus A320s and A321s. The airline then decided to drop the A321s and add to the number of A320s.

Easyjet transported around 88 million passengers in 2018, a 10% increase from the previous year and making it the fifth busiest airline in Europe.
