easyJet and Europcar agree new preferential partnership

easyJet, EuropcarEuropcar and easyJet released a joint statement this week confirming their preferred partnership has been extended for another two years. The partnership provides customers of both companies streamlined air to road travel solutions.

The leading European car hire supplier first joined forces with the budget airline back in 2003. To mark the extension of the partnership, easyJet has added Europcar decals to four of the aircraft deployed on routes to Europe. The CEOs of the two firms were present at the official unveiling ceremony of the new livery at Luton Airport.

Afterwards, Europcar CEO Caroline Parot told reporters the two entities perfectly complemented each other and had been a driving factor in establishing brand loyalty. Ms Parot continued by saying all at Europcar were looking forward to providing premium service to easyJet fliers.

easyJet’s CEO, Carolyn McCall, was equally as upbeat about the reaffirmation of the status quo. She stated that all at the airline were delighted about the partnership and were glad to have the opportunity of continuing to offer service to passengers and car hire customers.

During the 13-year life of the exclusive affiliation, Europcar says countless numbers of easyJet passengers have taken advantage of convenient car hire services. A recent study showed steady increases in rental reservations in all 31 of the counties easyJet flies to.

The survey compared the numbers of easyJet passengers who had hired from Europcar and found the number increased by 36 per cent between 2011 and 2016. The study also revealed Brits were getting more confident about driving on roads in Europe and the amount of people hiring cars on the continent was on the rise.
