easyJet is on track for record boosts as the official flight partner of Eurovision.

The budget airline is serving as the official flight partner for the annual song contest on Saturday (11.05.24) and will do so for the next three years, and as some 40,000 fans descended in Sweden ahead of the final, their service has been hailed as an "amazing experience" in all areas.

One of the Eurovision lovers who made the journey told the Express: “The flight laid on for us today was the ultimate treat for any Eurovision fan who loves to celebrate the glitz, glamour, and unity of Eurovision. I can’t believe what an amazing experience it's been so far, and we haven’t even left the airport yet.”

Earlier this year, bosses of that airline admitted that they "couldn't be prouder" to have teamed up with the song contest.

Gabriella Neudecker, Marketing Director, easyJet said: “We couldn’t be prouder to be the Official Airline Partner for the Eurovision Song Contest for the coming years. Travel offers you that rare opportunity to break away from the everyday and to feel totally in the moment, just as the iconic Eurovision Song Contest does. People, countries and communities are brought together, anything is possible and everyone is welcome. At easyJet we share all of these important values and are proud to play our part in connecting people across Europe, which we believe makes this partnership the perfect match.”

Sweden is to host the contest this year and EasyJet will therefore fly thousands of passengers into Copenhagen airport, which provides quick, direct access to the city of Malmö , where the live semi-final and final events will take place on 7, 9, and 11 May. with 10 per cent more seats going to and from the destination compared to 2023.

Martin Österdahl, Executive Supervisor, Eurovision Song Contest said:

"We’re thrilled to welcome easyJet as the Official Airline Partner for the Eurovision Song Contest. We both share a passion for connecting people and cultures, and look forward to taking off together as we unite the joy of music and the freedom of travel.”
