This introductory offer from Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou’s easyBus will apply to 20,000 seats for travel between 22 April and 31 May 2012, covering the spring bank holidays. Bookings must be made online at www.easyBus.co.uk by midnight Tuesday 1st May – with all seats available on a “first come, first served” basis.
A cake cutting ceremony to mark the occasion will be attended by Brian Callin, easyBus’ Chief Operating Officer and Rupert Lawrie, Commercial Director London Luton Airport on 25th April.
Sir Stelios said: “With overcrowding a major feature at London’s other airports, we want to play our part in ensuring London Luton helps take the strain.
“By using the tried and trusted ‘easy’ formula to expand value for money bus services, we will not only welcome visitors to the capital for the Olympics and the Diamond Jubilee but also ensure they have enough cash left to enjoy the best London has to offer.”
Rupert Lawrie, Commercial Director, London Luton Airport, commented:
“This new easyBus service between London Luton and Central London is a welcome addition to the rich mix of public transport options already available, offering value and choice to our passengers and providing fast and easy access into Central London.”
The new route will complement the existing service between the airport and Victoria Coach Station. To accommodate this expansion, easyBus has invested in an additional 50 brand-new custom-converted 13-seater Renault Masters, all badged up in the distinctive orange easyBus livery.

Serving the route between the airport and West Cromwell Road, Earl's Court, the new services will offer over 1000 seats per day. The easyBus pick-up and drop-off point is close to both Earl’s Court Exhibition Centre and Earl’s Court underground station making it a convenient service for those visiting an exhibition or travelling to other parts of London.
Outside the introductory offer, advance purchase one-way tickets priced from just £2 can be bought from the easyBus website, up to six months ahead of departure.
Pricing reflects the classic ‘easy’ model: the earlier the booking before the travel date the bigger the saving compared to buying on the day.
