easyJet named Best Low-Cost Airline at Business Traveller Awards


easyJet has again been voted Best Low-Cost Airline by readers of Business Traveller magazine which was announced at the annual Business Traveller Awards which took place on 31 October. 

A fixture of the business travel and hospitality calendar for more than 30 years, this year’s hotly contested awards were attended by more than 200 industry leaders.

In the last year new products have been added to easyJet’s offering such as the launch of its lounge in partnership with No1 Lounges at Gatwick airport which provided a new type of travel, as well as launching carbon reporting for corporate customers to help businesses measure the impact of the carbon emissions offsetting when flying with easyJet, and the resulting cost savings for their business travel programmes.

As praised by readers of Business Traveller Magazine, the airline has stuck strongly to its commitment to offering low fares and operating to desirable destinations at convenient times, as well as making it easy to book and fly.

James Marchant, Head of Business Development for easyJet commented:
“We know it is important for our business customers to be connected in person with their colleagues and customers across Europe and that when they need to fly, they want the best value, a convenient schedule to Europe’s primary airports and to travel with a responsible airline which is serious in its commitment to reducing its carbon emissions, to help their own business do the same. We’re incredibly proud to receive this award which demonstrates that easyJet not only serves the needs of our business customers but helps them maximise their return on investment in people"
The airline has a well-established and attractive business passenger offering including a varied slot portfolio, leading punctuality and an unrivalled network of primary airports.

The airline saw strong business travel recovery post-pandemic driven by the airline’s strong network, especially its domestic network, low fares and commitment to reducing carbon emissions. 

easyJet serves 19 UK airports, offering over 464 routes to over 135 airports from the UK to Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. To discover more about easyJet’s UK network and to book, visit

About easyJet
easyJet is Europe’s leading airline offering a unique and winning combination of the best route network connecting Europe’s primary airports, with great value fares and friendly service.

easyJet flies on more of Europe’s most popular routes than any other airline and carried more than 96 million passengers in 2019 – more than 16 million travelling for business. The airline has over 300 aircraft on nearly 1000 routes to more than 150 airports across 35 countries. Over 300 million Europeans live within one hour’s drive of an easyJet airport.

easyJet aims to be a good corporate citizen, employing people on local contracts in eight countries across Europe in full compliance with national laws and recognising their trade unions. The airline supports several local charities and has a corporate partnership with UNICEF which has raised over £14m for the most vulnerable children since it was established in 2012.

The airline takes sustainability seriously and is committed to reaching net-zero carbon emissions flying by 2050. Together with its partners, including Airbus, Rolls-Royce, Cranfield Aerospace Solutions and Wright Electric, easyJet is working to accelerate the development of zero-emission aircraft technology. In the meantime, the airline is offsetting the carbon emissions from the fuel used for all its flights, at no additional cost to its customers, and only supports projects that are certified by Gold Standard or the Verified Carbon Standard, internationally recognised certification schemes. In addition, easyJet continues to renew its fleet, operate efficiently, and aims to fill most of its seats. Since 2000, over a 20-year period, the airline reduced its carbon emissions per passenger, per kilometre by over one-third, and aims to bring this down further.

Innovation is in easyJet’s DNA – since launching over 25 years ago, easyJet changed the way people fly to the present day where the airline leads the industry in digital, web, engineering and operational innovations to make travel more easy and affordable for its passengers.

The airline was named as Britain’s Most Admired Company of 2020 in the transport sector, retaining the leading position for a second year running. Britain’s Most Admired Companies study is the longest-running annual survey of corporate reputation in the UK.
