"Legacy airlines have traditionally offered connectivity through costly and complex interline and codeshare agreements and procedures - with Worldwide by easyJet these will be replicated by self-connect and sales partnerships through a digital, virtual hub which will offer the same sort of connectivity but more simply and efficiently", it said.

Peter Duffy, Chief Commercial Office for easyJet, said: "We know there is a real customer demand for making flight connections on easyJet easier".

Under the Worldwide scheme, passengers will also be able to connect with other easyJet flights. Should a passenger miss a connecting flight they will be transferred to the next available flight.
