EasyJet is offering a private jet experience at Luton, without the private jet…

Hold onto your hats, the star airport treatment is about to get a LOT cheaper…

EasyJet passengers can now travel like billionaires following the launch of a new venture to allow the airline’s customers to use the private jet terminal and facilities at Luton airport.

Passengers can pay £475 to be checked in and clear security while relaxing in a luxury lounge, before being driven across the airfield to the plane in a private car. Oh, but once inside you’ll be treated exactly like the rest of “cattle class”…

The new partnership will allow those who have booked to use Luton’s new Signature terminal, opened in December 2016. It will turn a flight which could have cost as little as £9.49 into a £484.49 flight, so it’s worth considering if it’s worth the upgrade.

Andrew Middleton, easyJet’s head of ancillary revenue, said: “While easyJet will always be famous for our low fares and fantastic onboard service, for some passengers this is a chance to combine those things with a VIP experience for their loved ones.

We think it will be particularly popular for those celebrating a milestone birthday, anniversary or other special occasion, or for those travelling on business.”

With Evie Freeman, of Signature Flight Support, said: “Customers can now enjoy an elite experience normally only available to those utilising private aircraft.” The service costs £475 for the first passenger and £120 for each additional member in a travelling group.
