MPs will continue to fly with easyJet after it was revealed the budget carrier’s deal with the Houses of Parliament will be renewed for a second year.

The preferred partnership deal has seen more than 200 parliamentarians making over 1,000 journeys with the airline.

The deal is claimed to provide affordable travel for MPs, peers and other parliamentary staff while helping save money for taxpayers.

It provides low cost, flexible fares to MPs as well as providing support for MPs’ constituency and Commons Select Committee’s travel arrangements and is open for all MPs, Peers and Houses of Parliament staff.

EasyJet helped many MPs return from summer recess when Parliament was recalled recently.

Commercial director Cath Lynn said: “We know that many MPs, Peers and Government ministers already fly with easyJet and we are pleased to help make it easier for them to do so by extending this deal.

“The deal will enable even more MPs to enjoy our low fares, convenient schedule and friendly service as well as providing savings for the public purse.

“Parliamentarians are now part of the 10 million business travellers a year who choose easyJet.”
