It's based throughout Europe but mainly in the UK, with 19 bases across Europe, the most important one being Gatwick. EasyJet is the second-largest low-cost carrier in Europe, behind Ryanair.

The airline was established in 1995 as part of the EasyGroup conglomerate. It was launched by Greek-Cypriot businessman Stelios Haji-Ioannou and started inaugural flights the same year. In April 1996, the first wholly owned aircraft was delivered to Easyjet, enabling its first international route, to Amsterdam.
Until October 1997, the aircraft were operated by GB Airways, and subsequently by Air Foyle as EasyJet had not yet received its Air Operator"s Certificate. EasyJet has seen rapid expansion since its establishment in 1995, having grown through a combination of acquisitions and base openings fuelled by consumer demand for low-cost air travel.
In 1998, the company bought TEA Basel and launched Swiss operations, later renamed it as easyJet Switzerland. The airline acquired Stansted based low-cost airline Go in 2002 and GB Airways 5 years later. In 2010, it became the UKâ€™s largest airline.
