Pan European PR for easyJet
Creative brand communications for Europe's leading airline
We’ve worked alongside the in-house team at easyJet since 2015 to support the airline throughout the year with high profile campaigns that deliver in media, on social and add value to customer experience.
The Covid-19 pandemic caused Europe’s biggest airline, easyJet, to ground all flights for eight weeks.
To reassure passengers that it would be safe to fly again a comprehensive relaunch strategy would have to be developed in order to re-establish trust and confidence.
