What is easyJet plc?
EasyJet plc ( is a British multinational low-cost airline group headquartered in hangar 89 at London Luton Airport in Bedfordshire, England. The company was founded by wealthy Greek businessman Stelios Haji-Ioannou who is rumoured to have got the idea after being approached as a possible investor in Virgin Atlantic’s Greek operations.
The early business model was based on the increasing demand for low-cost, no-frills air travel pioneered by Southwest Airlines in the United States. Haji-Ioannou saw the opportunity to market this model in Europe.
The first strategy utilised by easyJet was to make Luton rather than London its base of operations. Luton had traditionally been used exclusively by charter operations and the airport was so impressed with the offer of additional business that it offered 30,000 sq ft of office space free of charge. Always looking for opportunities to lower operating costs, the company was a pioneer of the paperless office. The company continues to be driven by a low-cost model leveraging structural cost advantages, namely lack of unionised employees, against legacy and charter operations.
By pursuing an aggressive acquisition strategy, the company operates in 33 countries from 29 European bases. It has a fleet of 320 Airbus aircraft, making the decision to use one model of aircraft across all operations in an effort to reduce maintenance and operational costs. EasyJet PLC went public with an IPO on the London Stock Exchange on November 5, 2000. Currently the largest single shareholder is easyGroup holdings, which is owned by the Haji-Ioannou family and has a little more than 29 per cent control.
