EasyJet passengers will be able to use a luxury private jet terminal at Luton airport which is popular with celebrities like Brad Pitt and Taylor Swift.
The VIP service costs £475 for one passenger and £120 for any additional travellers in a group.
Travellers using the budget airline will be given the option of arriving and departing from the newly opened luxury terminal, leaving their cars parked right outside the front door.
Customs, immigration and security screening is all performed at the terminal with passengers offered refreshments while relaxing in luxury lounges.
When departing for a flight, a car transports passengers directly to the aircraft where they can board at their leisure while luggage is transferred to the aircraft.
The luxury option comes through a deal between the airline and Signature Flight Support to use the private jet terminal at Luton.
Luton airport has three private terminals and handles around private jet 30,000 arrivals and departures each year – roughly a quarter of all such flights in the UK.
EasyJet head of ancillary revenue, Andrew Middleton, said: “While easyJet will always be famous for our low fares and fantastic on board service, for some passengers this a chance to combine those things with a VIP experience for their loved ones and we think it will be particularly popular for those celebrating a milestone birthday, anniversary or other special occasion or for those travelling on business.”
Evie Freeman, managing director for Signature Flight Support’s Europe, Middle East and Africa division, added: “We are pleased to extend this extraordinary customer experience to our newly inaugurated ultra-luxury terminal at London Luton.
“Customers can now enjoy an elite experience normally only available to those utilising private aircraft.
“It provides a truly unique experience and our staff can accommodate all passengers’ needs in a world-class manner.”
