Easyjet backs Heathrow expansion


News »  Published: 30/01/2015 - Filed under: News » Easyjet has thrown its support behind London Heathrow's plan for a third runway. The budget carrier made its position known in a submission to the Airports Commission, which is looking into how to expand the UK's airport capacity. It comes as a blow to Gatwick, which has been campaigning for a second runway and is Easyjet's biggest base. In Easyjet's submission, CEO Carolyn McCall said: "Heathrow is in the best interests of passengers as it has the greatest demand. It is clear that long-haul airlines want to expand at Heathrow and if they can't, they will do so not at Gatwick but at other airports such as Paris, Amsterdam and Frankfurt."

United backs points for spend trend


News »  Published: 30/01/2015 - Filed under: News » Loyalty » United's managing director of international sales in the UK and Ireland has backed the airline industry's move towards awarding frequent flyer miles based on ticket price rather than distance flown. Bob Schumacher said the changes being made at Mileage Plus in March will result in a more logical, and fairer, loyalty programme. He told Business Traveller: "The distance you fly should have no bearing on how much we want to reward your loyalty. Clearly, in any other programme — Tesco Rewards, for instance — it's all done on expense. "So, in a way, it's remarkable it's gone on in that old-fashioned way for as long as it has done." From March 1, Mileage Plus members will earn award miles… Read More
