What is the history of easyJet Holidays?

What is the history of easyJet Holidays?

EasyJet Holidays launched in 2011 selling flights and accommodation in partnership with the Lowcost Travel Group.


In May 2014, easyJet Holidays switched supplier to Hotelopia and vowed to become one of the UK’s pre-eminent tour operators.


However, this expansion failed to materialise, as acknowledged by Lundgren.

 

Wilson’s appointment in May though was followed in July by confirmation the airline had acquired an Atol for the first time, initially protecting 184,994 holidays.


EasyJet said this was a manifestation of the new Package Travel Regulations, allowing it to continue selling protected flight and car hire bookings.


Its holiday division has, since 2014, been covered under Hotelopia’s Atol. However, Hotelopia’s Atol was wound down to zero protected seats earlier this year.


EasyJet’s own Atol, meanwhile, has been extended to 705,020 protected seats for the period to September 2019.

 

The airline has previously said it will leverage data from its millions of passengers to grow its holiday division.
