easyJet, Europe’s leading airline, has announced a partnership with Signature Flight Support that will enable easyJet passengers to use Signature Flight Support’s luxury private jet terminal at London Luton Airport.
London Luton is Britain’s busiest airport for private jets – popular with celebrities like Brad Pitt and Taylor Swift and famous for the distinctive livery of planes belonging to Lewis Hamilton and John Travolta when they fly in.
easyJet passengers can now choose to arrive and depart from Signature’s newly opened luxury terminal, leaving their cars parked right outside the front door.. Customs, immigration and security screening is all performed at the Signature terminal and customers will enjoy all of the amenities and refreshments whilst relaxing in well-appointed luxury lounges.
When departing for a flight, a Signature Flight Support luxury car transports passengers directly to the aircraft where they can board at their leisure while their luggage is transferred to the aircraft..
Andrew Middleton, Head of Ancillary Revenue for easyJet, commented:
“We’ve teamed up with Signature Elite to offer our customers a luxury private terminal experience when they fly with easyJet at London Luton Airport.
“While easyJet will always be famous for our low fares and fantastic on board service, for some passengers this a chance to combine those things with a VIP experience for their loved ones and we think it will be particularly popular for those celebrating a milestone birthday, anniversary or other special occasion or for those travelling on business.”
Evie Freeman, Managing Director for Signature Flight Support’s Europe, Middle East and Africa division stated:
“We are pleased to extend this extraordinary customer experience to our newly inaugurated ultra-luxury terminal at London Luton. Customers can now enjoy an elite experience normally only available to those utilising private aircraft. It provides a truly unique experience and our staff can accommodate all passengers’ needs in a world-class manner. Signature ELITE Class has been extremely successful at London Gatwick Airport and we are excited to bring luxury back to commercial air travel. We look to continue to expand Signature ELITE Class services to additional airports in the future.”
The service costs £475 for one passenger and £120 for any additional travellers in the group. Passengers interested in the service can make a reservation at www.signatureeliteclass.com.
London Luton Airport is Britain’s busiest airport for private jets with three private terminals and around 30,000 arrivals and departures each year - roughly a quarter of all such flights in the UK.
