Air France has made this announcement:

For the upcoming peak summer season, in July and August, Air France will for the first time be operating flights to Heraklion (Crete, Greece), Palermo (Sicily, Italy), Olbia* (Sardinia, Italy) and Split (Croatia) on departure from Paris-Charles de Gaulle.

4 destinations in continuation of the 2018 summer season on departure from Paris-Charles de Gaulle

Air France is extending and intensifying the frequency of its flights to Cagliari*, Dubrovnik, Ibiza and Bari from Paris-Charles de Gaulle, already operated in 2018. In addition, these four destinations will be served every weekend during the 2019 summer season.

The Greek city of Heraklion

Heraklion, the capital of Crete, is the ideal starting point to discover this sunny island. The island, with its whitewashed houses, beautiful sandy and pebble beaches and exceptional flora is an ode to hedonism.

The bright sunlight of Palermo

For centuries, many different cultures – including Roman, Arab, Punic and Norman – have shaped Palermo. From this mosaic of cultures was born a city with a harmonious and baroque portrait. Palaces, churches and buildings with Arabic-Norman architecture imbued with baroque style will delight aesthetes and history lovers alike. Palermo is a city whose beauty is uncontested. You can walk through its streets as if you were walking through a poem. The rugged coast offers many sun-drenched beaches with turquoise waters.

The happy city of Olbia

Olbia, which means “happiness” in Greek, is the starting point in Sardinia, its turquoise waters and unspoiled scenery. Sardinia, the second largest island in the Mediterranean, is an island tossed around by Phoenician, Roman, Genoese and Spanish cultures, among others. This land, whose geography varies from the hills where you can hear Sardinian shepherds whistling, to the coasts lined with turquoise waters, is certainly one of our most stunning destinations.

The beaches and palaces of Split

With sandy beaches and turquoise waters, a historic centre with sumptuous monuments and a port to sail to the beautiful islands of Dalmatia, Split is an ideal holiday destination. Croatia’s second largest city, located on the coast, is a delight for all beach lovers. The city is also home to a rich cultural and architectural heritage. It is home to the Diocletian Palace, an imposing monument dating back to the Roman Empire and inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

easyJet partners with Singapore Airlines to connect travellers between Europe and South East Asia with ‘Worldwide by easyJet’

easyJet (UK) Airbus A320-214 WL G-EZTT (msn 4219) BSL (Paul Bannwarth). Image: 943445.

easyJet has made this announcement:

easyJet has announced that Singapore Airlines and its low cost subsidiary airline Scoot will join the ‘Worldwide by easyJet’ global connections service, connecting easyJet customers with South East Asia with Singapore Airlines via Milan Malpensa airport and with Scoot through Berlin Tegel. The service is expected to be available within the coming months.

‘Worldwide by easyJet’ launched last year as the first ever low-fares carrier connection service and will now for the first time offer customers both a low-fares connection to Asia through Scoot, as well as the choice to connect with a full-service carrier through Singapore Airlines, named as the World’s Best Airline 2018. Singapore Airline group’s combined network connects over 135 destinations in more than 35 countries across five continents, with a combined fleet of over 180 aircraft.

Singapore Airlines and Scoot join other ‘Worldwide’ partner airlines Thomas Cook, Norwegian, WestJet, Loganair, La Compagnie, Corsair, Neos and Aurigny. 53 million easyJet customers a year will be able to book connecting flights with these airlines through the easyJet website to around 100 destinations across North America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Indian Ocean and soon to South East Asia with Singapore Airlines and Scoot.

Tens of thousands of easyJet customers are using Worldwide to connect through easyJet’s biggest European airport hubs including Gatwick, Milan Malpensa, Berlin Tegel and Venice Marco Polo, with the service due to go live in the coming months at Paris Charles de Gaulle, Paris Orly, Amsterdam Schiphol, Manchester and Edinburgh.

Worldwide by easyJet

‘Worldwide by easyJet’ is the first global airline connections service by a European low fares airline. Legacy airlines have traditionally offered connectivity through costly and complex interline and codeshare agreements and procedures.  With ‘Worldwide by easyJet’ these will be replicated by self-connect and sales partnerships through a digital, virtual hub which will offer the same sort of connectivity but more simply and efficiently.

easyJet has leadership positions at more of Europe’s major airports and flies on more of Europe’s 100 largest routes than any other airline which makes it the most attractive European short haul airline partner. The introduction of this disruptive product opens up new 70m market segment for easyJet.

All of this connectivity has been enabled by technology partner Dohop whose innovative platform allows easyJet customers to book connections and forward flights on easyJet.com.  Worldwide by easyJet will also allow easyJet passengers to connect with other easyJet flights through partner airports.

Worldwide by easyJet does not impact easyJet’s punctuality, its asset utilisation or operating model. The airline will not hold flights for connecting passengers. Worldwide by easyJet is subject to a 2 hour 30 minute ‘Minimum Connection Time’, which will give customers plenty of time to transfer between flights and/or terminals. Should a passenger miss a connecting flight they will be transferred to the next available flight.
