easyJet CEO Carolyn McCall stated the carrier will trial a new initiative across three Scottish airports to help attract more business travellers (Business Traveller/ABTN, 11-Apr-2011). The trial will commence following a recent pilot scheme where fast-track security became a permanent fixture at Edinburgh and Aberdeen airports for passengers who purchase speedy boarding or hold an easyJet plus card. It will also come as standard for anyone who books through a travel management company (TMC). The trial will also be introduced at Glasgow Airport during Apr-2011. The carrier stated services between Scotland and London "boast some of the highest percentages of business travellers across our entire network". easyJet also plans to improve flight times on the Glasgow to London Gatwick service from 06-Jun-2011 to include an early morning option for those travelling to London. Additionally a fourth daily service between Glasgow and Gatwick will be available from winter 2011.
