Flying to Eurovision with EasyJet

EasyJet was announced as the National Partner for the Contest for its particular connection to the host city of Liverpool. The airline was initially set up and began operating from Liverpool Airport in 1997. Since then, the airport serves as a hub for the airline, flying two million people across Europe in the past year.

Speaking about the collaboration, EasyJet’s Chief Customer and Marketing Officer Robert Birge said:

“This sponsorship is a perfect match as not only do we offer more seats between the UK and Eurovision countries than any other airline, but we also have a long history with the host city of Liverpool and are the city’s largest airline. Like this iconic competition, easyJet connects people, cultures and communities across Europe and beyond and so we are delighted to be a National Sponsor of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, in collaboration with BBC Studios.

“We are incredibly excited to play a role in this year’s Eurovision, which celebrates the inclusive values easyJet shares, is much loved by our people as well as millions of our customers throughout Europe.”
