EasyJet may be a low-cost airline, but they’re certainly not about to rest on their low-priced laurels. The carrier, already the biggest tenant at Gatwick Airport, is looking to expand their metaphorical waistlines and become the Jabba the Hutt of budget airlines. (When I say Jabba the Hutt, I mean size-wise of course—not green, slobbering or evil.)
How, you may ask? Well, they’re certainly not kidnapping lithe young princesses and forcing them to do interpretive dance moves while dressed in gold bikinis. Instead, easyJet have announced plans to buy 25 more Airbus A320s to add to their fleet. 25 more Airbus A320s may not sound that much to you sceptics out there, but bear in mind that the purchases are part of a deal with Airbus for acquiring 120 new aircraft by 2012.
What with the London Olympics also coming up in that year, it makes good sense for easyJet to start expanding their fleet soon. After all, 120 new aircraft equals … a lot of seats. And a lot of potential bums on those seats.
