Easyjet have announced Flight Club, a frequent flyer programme.  The low-cost carrier, which recently celebrated its 20th birthday, has trialled the scheme with more than 15,000 passengers over the last 18 months.

It is due to be rolled out across Easyjet’s European network from early next year.

Passengers will be invited to join if they have booked or flown 20 or more flights or made a minimum spend over a 12-month period. Full details will be made available nearer launch.

Flight Club will not operate “like a traditional airline reward programme”, Easyjet CEO Carolyn McCall said.

Benefits include fee-free flight changes; free name changes; a price promise that if “passengers find the same flight on easyjet.com at a lower price, we’ll give them the price difference towards their next flight”; previews of new routes and special offers; and a dedicated contact centre.

Flight Club will run alongside Easyjet Plus, which launched in 2008 and allows passengers free allocated seat choice, dedicated bag drop and fast boarding.
