easyJet Carrier's Regulations

These Carrier's Regulations apply to flights operated by easyJet Airline Company Limited and easyJet Switzerland S.A. (together hereafter referred to as "easyJet"). They should be read in conjunction with our "Conditions of Carriage for Passengers and Baggage" certain provisions ("Articles") of which are referenced below.

easyJet is committed to providing all our customers with excellent service, and we are constantly looking at ways in which we can improve this. These Carrier's Regulations, which cover certain aspects of our booking, requirements for travel and customer service are designed to reflect this commitment, and in a number of respects go over and above our strict legal obligations.

 

1 Data protection

easyJet is registered under the 1998 UK Data Protection Act. We may use your personal information to process your flight booking and to notify you about new easyJet services and special offers we think you may find valuable. If you would prefer not to receive this information, please call us on 0871 244 2366.

Conditions of Carriage Article 6.4

 

2 Price promise

Any easyJet passenger who has made a booking and subsequently finds that lower fares (when taken together with all applicable charges) for the same easyJet flight have become available will be refunded the difference as a credit against future flights on easyJet. The only exception to this is if the lower fares are part of a promotional offer. Please note that each Journey will be treated separately. This credit will be valid for use against bookings made within 6 months from the date of issue. It will expire at midnight on the expiry date and the validity of the credit file cannot be extended.

 

To qualify for a refund the fare must be still available for sale and must be for the same date, destination, and flight number.

 

If your price promise request is in respect of a booking that has been subject to a "flight transfer" or "name change" (see relevant paragraphs below), easyJet will not refund below the value of the original fare paid in the initial booking. All transfer fees and name change fees are non-refundable.

 

To make a claim the passenger must telephone our call centre on 0871 244 2366 (calls cost 10p per minute; calls from mobiles and other networks may cost more. For other telephone numbers visit the contact us section.) Claims made by fax, letter, or email cannot be accepted.

 

 

3 Refunds and cancellation fees

 

easyJet is a non-refund airline save as provided in our "Conditions of Carriage for Passengers and Baggage" and in these Carrier's Regulations.

Conditions of Carriage Article 6.6

 

 

You may cancel your booking within 24 hours of making the original booking. Please note a cancellation can only be processed up to two (2) hours prior to the flight's scheduled departure time. You will receive a refund (including APD but excluding any credit card, transfer, speedy boarding, sports equipment, or other administrative fees). A cancellation fee per passenger per journey will be charged in accordance with the table below. Cancellation must be made via our call centre on 0871 244 2366 (calls cost 10p per minute; calls from mobiles and other networks may cost more. For other telephone numbers visit the contact us section). Refunds will be made to the credit or debit card used to make your booking.

 

easyJet regrets that it is unable to offer refunds in the event of passengers being unable to fly owing to any change in personal circumstances, including but not limited to medical grounds, with the exception of the application of the 24 hour cancellation policy.

 

In exceptional circumstances, however, easyJet will consider issuing a credit in the event of the bereavement of an immediate family member (mother, father, brother, sister, grandparent or child) provided that the claim and a copy of the death certificate are submitted by post to the easyJet Customer Services Department.

 

All claims will be assessed entirely at the discretion of easyJet. This credit will be to the value of the original fare paid, per passenger per journey, and can be used against any future flights on easyJet within the following six month period.

 

easyJet strongly recommends passengers obtain adequate travel insurance to cover them in such circumstances.

4 Air travel organiser's licences (ATOLs)

 

ATOLs are issued by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and are a legal requirement for certain persons selling air travel. This licence gives some protection to passengers in the event of that person (usually a business or company) failing (going bust), and includes some travel agents, tour operators, conference organisers, sports travel companies etc. Particular exceptions to this requirement are where the customer purchases the travel direct from the airline or those of the airline's agents who provide a ticket immediately upon payment of the fare. The airline which will be operating the flight does not have to hold an ATOL.

 

As an airline we cannot sell to any person seats which are then to be resold or included in a package deal unless that person holds a valid ATOL.

 

Non-ATOL holders can purchase seats on behalf of their client if the transaction is made using the client's own credit or debit card, or if they provide to each of their customers on whose behalf they make a booking a copy of the relevant easyJet itinerary or ATOL receipt which is required by the Civil Aviation (Air Travel Organisers Licensing) Regulations 1995 (as amended, substituted or re-enacted from time to time).

 

Individuals can purchase seats on behalf of friends, relatives, or colleagues without holding an ATOL provided they do not intend to recover from them more than the fares which those individuals have paid on their behalf.

 

 

5 Name changes

 

Names of passengers may be changed on payment of a "name change" fee (see tables below) per passenger, per journey up to one hour before the scheduled time of departure of that flight. In addition, if there is a difference between the original fare paid and the current fare available at the time the change is made, the customer will be required to pay any increase in fare since the original booking. No refund will be given if the new fare is lower. Bookings containing more than one Journey must have the same passenger name for each Journey and name changes are not possible where any Journey in a booking has already been made. If a customer wishes to change a traveller’s name on a flight that is full, then any price difference to be paid will be based on the highest fare applicable for the route booked.

 

Names of passengers that form part of an online booking made by a registered member can be changed through the easyJet web site. The changes must be made at least two hours prior to the flight's scheduled departure time. The fees for name changes made online are:

7 Onward flights

 

If you have booked an onward flight with easyJet, this represents a separate contract. Please note that easyJet does not operate a connecting flight service, where you choose to book such an onward flight this will be considered to be a separate Journey and therefore you will need to check-in with your luggage for each Journey in accordance with the check-in requirements below. Consequently we advise that when booking an onward flight with easyJet, you allow at least two hours between the scheduled time of arrival of the incoming flight, and the scheduled time of departure of the onward flight.

 

 

8 Check-in

 

 

Check-in at the Airport

Passengers should present themselves at the appropriate check-in desks, which will normally open two hours before the scheduled time of departure.

 

Passengers who present themselves later than 40 minutes prior to scheduled time of departure will not be accepted for travel, and will forfeit their seats. It is recommended that you check in two hours before the scheduled time of departure. Passengers must be able to quote their booking reference. In some limited circumstances you may be able to transfer on to a later flight – please see article 7 of our Terms and Conditions for Passengers and Baggage for details.

 

If you have pre-booked assistance to get to the gate, we recommend you arrive at the airport 90 minutes prior to scheduled time of departure in order to ensure we can meet your requirements. Arrangements will be made for passengers to be pre-boarded in advance so that the cabin crew can explain the safety requirements onboard the aircraft. Please note that easyJet operates a strict pre-board policy, A person who is pre-boarded may be accompanied by a maximum of two travellers who are the appointed guardians, parents, carers or travelling companions and any siblings under the age of 10.

Conditions of Carriage Articles 7.1 and 7.2

 

 

 

 

  

Online Check-in

Where your confirmation letter states that online check-in is applicable to your Flight, you can check-in online and print out your boarding pass after making your Booking and up until 2 hours prior to the scheduled departure time of your Flight.

 

On arrival at the airport, you should proceed straight to security. Your passport and travel documents will be checked as you go through security and again when you board the aircraft. You must present yourself at the boarding gate ready for boarding no later than 25 minutes before the scheduled departure time of your Flight.

 

You may only take one piece of hand luggage which should be no larger than 56x45x25cm in size. If you decide to carry Checked Baggage you must check in as normal and you will receive a new boarding card. Please see check-in details above and in our Terms and Conditions for Passengers and Baggage.

 

If you have pre-booked assistance to get to the gate, just contact a member of easyJet staff in the check-in hall and they will be happy to organise this for you. Please remember to allow extra time for this. If you are a wheelchair user and wish to take your wheelchair with you, please contact a member of easyJet staff on arrival at the airport to ensure that your wheelchair gets accepted for carriage. We recommend you arrive at the airport 60 minutes before the scheduled time of departure of your flight but in any event, you must arrive 40 minutes before the scheduled time of departure of your flight otherwise we will not be able to accept your wheelchair for carriage. If you wish to be pre-boarded, contact a member of staff who will be happy to arrange this. Please note that easyjet operates a strict pre-board policy, A person who is pre-boarded may be accompanied by a maximum of two travellers who are the appointed guardians, parents, carers or travelling companions and any siblings under the age of 10.

 

In any event, passengers who present themselves at the boarding gate later than 25 minutes prior to scheduled time of departure will not be accepted for travel, and will forfeit their seats.

Conditions of Carriage Articles 7.1 and 7.3

 

If you arrive for check-in at the airport terminal too late to check in as required above, or present yourself at the boarding gate later than the deadline above, you will forfeit your flight and no compensation will be given. However in these circumstances, you are requested to go to the easyJet sales desk, when open, and speak with our representative who may be able to help you. Please note that if you have also purchased speedy boarding, you must present yourself at the boarding gate no later than 25 minutes before the scheduled departure time of your Flight in order to board the aircraft first otherwise you will lose your place in the speedy boarding group and no compensation will be given.

 

 

The airline requires all passengers to provide photographic ID at check-in on all flights including domestic services. Passengers who use the online check-in service will be required to provide photographic ID at the security gate and again at the boarding gate.

 

 

Please see Infants and Children section below for exceptions to ID requirements relating to children.

Please note: Passengers, other than British or Irish nationals, travelling between the UK and the Republic of Ireland, are required to produce a valid passport and any associated relevant travel documentation.

 

 

Acceptable forms of ID on flights operating through Basel-Mulhouse and Geneva (domestic and international):

 

Passengers travelling on flights departing from, or arriving into, Basel-Mulhouse and Geneva airports (including flights to/from France)are considered international passengers and can therefore only be accepted for travel with a valid passport or national identity card.

 

The documentary requirements for passengers on international flights are a valid passport or national identity card supported by any other relevant documentation such as visas where applicable.

 

 

 

Intra-Schengen Flights

 

The Schengen Agreement, 1995 created a borderless region and therefore travel within the designated Schengen area essentially does not involve any form of document checks by Immigration. Flights between Schengen States are considered as International flights and therefore passengers require a valid passport or ID card in order to travel from one Schengen state to another.

 

Passengers who are not from a Schengen state but who are permanent residents in one of the Schengen states can travel in the Schengen area without a visa, they will be accepted for travel subject to production of a valid passport and their valid residency card. A residency card is not valid as a travel document unless accompanied by a valid passport.

 

9 Standbys

easyJet does not operate a standby policy.

 

 

10 Baggage

 

Conditions of Carriage Articles 8.1 and 9

Passengers and their baggage will be subjected to security screening throughout their journey. To assist us with this, please ensure that your cabin baggage is packed in such a way that, if requested by airport personnel at check-in, you are able to transfer articles into baggage to be checked in as hold baggage.

 

Hand baggage regulations in many airports are currently subject to change at short notice. Additional restrictions imposed by regional or national authorities and governing hand or hold baggage may be in force at the time of carriage. You may also be advised of changes to the hand baggage allowances or procedures set out in these Carrier’s Regulations via e-mail communications from easyJet.

 

Passengers may take liquids on board in their hand luggage provided they meet the following restrictions:

 

1. The liquid is in a container with a maximum volume of 100 ml

The plastic bag should be presented separately at security.

 

You may be required to dispose of liquids which do not meet the above requirements.

 

Save where the limits set locally are more restrictive, passengers are permitted one standard piece of hand baggage to a volume limit of 56x45x25cm (including wheels and pockets) (“Standard Hand Baggage”). It must fit without force into the gauges provided at check-in or departure gates. No weight restriction applies within reasonable limits — i.e. a passenger must be able to place the piece of luggage safely in the overhead storage bins without assistance.

(a) one of the following: An overcoat; an umbrella, or a shawl; and
(b) one standard size carrier bag of goods purchased from the departure airport.

If you fail to pay for additional/oversized bags to be checked into the hold, we reserve the right to refuse travel without further liability to you.

 

 

 

 

Checked Baggage

 

Every item of standard checked ('hold') baggage will incur a fee. The applicable online fee will be displayed at the time of booking baggage (whether during or after booking your flight). Alternatively, you may choose to pay a higher charge at the airport. You will be advised of this charge at the airport. Payment of the fee provides you with an aggregate allowance of 20kg across all pieces of hold baggage which may only be increased by payment of excess weight charges.

In the event of loss or damage to baggage the airline's liability is normally

baggage which is not permitted to be carried (see "baggage" above).

Passengers with specific requirements are those whose mobility is reduced due to physical incapacity (sensory or locomotory), intellectual deficiency, age, illness or any other cause of disability. easyJet is unable to accept those passengers with a level of disability which requires the presence of a care assistant unless a care assistant is travelling with the passenger. A maximum of two disabled passengers can travel with one Care Assistant.

 

Passengers with specific requirements who book their seats over the telephone must advise easyJet of their requirements at the time of booking. Passengers purchasing seats over the Internet should select the type of assistance they require via the flight confirmation email (Specific needs and access requirements). Alternatively, customers may contact us by telephone to make this request, on 0871 244 2366 (Calls cost 10p per minute; calls from mobiles and other networks may cost more. For other telephone numbers visit the contact us section.) The airline requires a minimum of 48 hours notice to arrange assistance. It may not be possible to honour requests received less than 48 hours prior to the scheduled time of departure of a flight, as the airline may not be able to accommodate your needs. This could result in passengers being unable to travel. However, where possible, easyJet will endeavour to provide passengers with assistance when boarding and disembarking flights.

 

Please see paragraph 8 above in relation to Check-in requirements.

 

Passengers with specific requirements will not be allowed to sit in emergency exit rows of the aircraft in case of an emergency evacuation of the aircraft.

 

Passengers travelling with vital medication and/or medical equipment are permitted to carry up to 10kgs of medication and/or equipment free of charge in addition to their standard hold baggage allowance provided that it is carried in one bag. Where medical equipment is packed in more than one bag, the customer will be charged an additional bag charge fee.

 

To classify as vital medication and/or medical equipment the passenger would require medical documentation from their doctor confirming that the passenger must carry this medication and/or equipment.

 

Passengers travelling with controlled drugs and/or injectable materials are advised to carry a medical letter/prescription confirming details of the drugs and the intended use.

 

The medication/medical equipment must be carried separately from the passengers standard hold baggage to ensure ease of recognition at check-in.

Wheelchairs
Wheelchairs and mobility aids weighing more than 60kgs (excluding battery) cannot be accepted for travel. Only wheelchairs and mobility aids weighing 60kgs or less (excluding battery) can be accepted.

 

Passengers' folding wheelchairs will be carried free of charge in addition to their normal baggage allowance. Where a passenger requires that more than one wheelchair be carried, and the second wheelchair is a sporting wheelchair, the sporting wheelchair will be carried upon payment of the sports equipment fee.

 

The airline will only accept groups of three or more wheelchair passengers by prior arrangement made via our call centre on 0871 244 2366 (Calls cost 10p per minute; calls from mobiles and other networks may cost more. For other telephone numbers visit the contact us section.)

 

Wheelchairs that are powered by sealed, non-spillable types of battery are acceptable for carriage on easyJet aircraft. The airline will not carry wheelchairs with un-sealed, spillable batteries.

 

Wheelchair facilities can be provided at the airport for passengers who are completely immobile and cannot walk unaided, or are unable to climb the aircraft steps, or cannot walk long distances. You must inform easyJet at the time of booking to arrange this service.

Additional seat requirement
Our minimum seat dimensions are as follows:

  • Pitch (distance between back of seat and back of seat in front): 29" (approx. 72.5cm)
  • Width (distance between armrests): 171/2 " (approx. 44cm)

 

If you are unable to fit into a single seat with the above dimensions for any reason (such as special medical requirements e.g. a broken leg) you will be required to purchase additional seating

 

 

 

 

 Passengers travelling with broken limbs

All passengers travelling with broken limbs in plaster are required to travel with a medical certificate.

 

Passengers travelling with upper limbs in cast, waist and above, will only require one seat to travel.

 

Adult passengers travelling with lower limbs in cast, waist and/or full leg plaster, must purchase three seats in total, per journey, to travel. This will enable the leg to be elevated during the flight and reduce swelling.

 

Passengers travelling with lower leg in plaster, may only require one seat. It is at the discretion of the check-in staff and/or crew to determine whether additional seats must be purchased. Additional seating must be purchased, regardless of whether the aircraft is full or not.

 

Child passengers travelling with lower limbs in cast are to be dealt with as above but the length of the cast will need to be determined to decide whether they would require one, two or three seats to enable their leg to be elevated during the flight.

 

Passengers travelling with a plaster cast that has been fitted for less than 48 hours then the cast needs to be split (the split need to run along the entire length of the cast) If the plaster cast been fitted for more than 48 hours there is no requirement for the cast to be split. This is applicable for both plaster of paris and resin casts. A medical certificate confirming fitness to fly will be required.

 

Please contact our call centre to arrange this on 0871 244 2366. (Calls cost 10p per minute; calls from mobiles and other networks may cost more. For other telephone numbers visit the contact us section.)

When travelling between 28 - 35 (inclusive) weeks a medical certificate issued by a doctor or midwife confirming the number of weeks of pregnancy and confirming that the passenger is fit to fly is required.

Service dogs and helping dogs will not be permitted to travel on flights to/from UK to mainland Europe or to/from Morocco. Flights from mainland Europe to Sicily, Sardinia or the Balearic Island (or vice versa) are considered flights within mainland Europe for this purpose. “Mainland Europe” for the purposes of this policy is considered to be all routes on the easyJet network, excluding flights to/from UK to mainland Europe or to/from Morocco.

 

For the purposes of these Regulations, dogs are considered service dogs by easyJet provided they are trained by one of the following charities: Support Dogs; the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association; Hearing Dogs for Deaf People; Dogs for the Disabled or Canine Partners. Service dogs will only be permitted to travel if the passenger is in possession of an official identity document provided by one of the above-mentioned charities confirming that the dog is a fully trained service dog or is under the control of a trainer. The service dog must wear a standard identifying jacket/harness.

 

Subject to the availability of space at the front of the aircraft, service dogs will be accommodated free of charge on the floor of the aircraft at the feet of the handler. If such space is not available, an extra seat may be purchased by the handler (subject to availability) so that the service dog can stay on the floor next to the handler. Service dogs must wear a safety harness, to be supplied by the handler, during take-off and landing and when the “fasten seat belt” sign is illuminated.

 

To ensure that all necessary procedures are completed, passengers with service dogs are recommended to check in 90 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time of their flight. Passengers are required to advise easyJet in advance if they will be travelling with a service dog by contacting the easyJet contact centre on 0871 244 2366 (Calls cost 10p per minute; calls from mobiles and other networks may cost more.

Children under 18 travelling without their parents/legal guardians and with an ID card must have a form of written authorisation to travel from their parents.

  • They must collect the form from their local police station which must be presented with their ID card at the check-in desk and at passport control.
  • If they do not have this form the passport control officers will refuse them travel.
  • Children travelling with a valid passport do not require this form as a passport acts as parental authority.

  • Children travelling on easyJet international flights must have either a valid ID card or passport and any other necessary documents.

  • Birth certificate.

 

 

 Portuguese children under 18 years

Portuguese nationals and alien residents under 18 years and leaving or re- entering Portugal unaccompanied by their father, mother or legal guardian need a travel authorisation. This travel authorisation must be:

  • signed by the father, mother or legal guardian; and
  • the signature is notarised if the father, mother or legal guardian reside in Portugal; or
  • the signature is authenticated by a Portuguese embassy or consulate in the country where the father, mother or legal guardian reside.

 

This travel authorisation is also required when minors are accompanied by a person other than their father, mother or legal guardian. In such cases the travel authorisation must also clearly show the name of the accompanying person. Foreign minors under 18 years and travelling alone may be refused entry if they do not have anyone in Portugal taking responsibility for their stay.

  • An adult with two or more infants aged six months or less cannot be accepted for travel.
  • A child between the ages of two and three years may be seated in a car seat in accordance with the above table.

 

easyJet does not operate an indemnity policy and therefore under no circumstance, under the Child Protection Act, must another passenger be asked to accept responsibility during flight of an unaccompanied minor.

 

 

 

Groups of children

easyJet will accept children aged 13 years or under in large groups (i.e. 10 or more) on the condition that there is a minimum ratio of one accompanying adult per 10 children. In these instances an adult is considered to be anyone aged 16 years or above.

At their discretion, easyJet will supply and serve, if appropriate, alcoholic beverages to passengers on board. However, passengers are prohibited from consuming alcoholic beverages on easyJet flights which they have supplied themselves or have been supplied by third parties.

Passengers are reminded that in accordance with UK and international law the Captain is in command of the aircraft and every person on board shall obey his or her lawful commands. All easyJet Captains are given authority to deal with passengers who misbehave, are disruptive, or otherwise cause problems by whatever means the Captain thinks fit. This may include the physical restraint and, when possible, removal from the flight of such persons and, if a diversion has been necessitated, handing over those persons to security or policing personnel on the ground. easyJet also wishes to point out that if a passenger causes any damage whatsoever or his or her actions cause easyJet to incur any costs (including those of a diversion which may be substantial), easyJet will hold that person or persons liable.
