easyJet launches new advent calendar
To celebrate the upcoming festive season, easyJet has launched a new, limited-edition advent calendar that includes flights. The ‘Advent(ure) Calendar’ features 12 drawers, each with special travel gifts. This is the first time easyJet has launched a festive calendar, following research suggesting the British population crave foreign adventure more than anything in 2022.
According to easyJet,
“The calendar includes four pairs of return flights for two including hold luggage, as well as one year’s easyJet plus membership worth £215, vouchers to spend on easyJet’s onboard Bistro and on tours and excursions with ‘GetYourGuide’, as well as car hire, all for people to enjoy more adventures abroad in 2022.”
The calendar is priced at £695, with an RRP value of over £1500 according to easyJet. The advent calendar will be on sale from Friday, November 26th, with a limited number available.
A look at the calendar in detail:
- Four pairs of return flights for two, including 23kg hold luggage per person
- £75 worth of vouchers to spend on tours and excursions across Europe with ‘Get Your Guide’
- One year easyJet Plus membership worth £215

Rachael Smith, Director of Proposition and Innovation for easyJet, said,
“In each calendar customers will find all kinds of travel gifts, from flights to a choice of over 130 destinations across our unrivalled European network to unforgettable experiences and excursions, as well as travel extras to make trips next year extra special. It’s the perfect present for those who want to give the gift of adventure.”
Travel a top priority for 2022
A poll conducted by easyJet revealed that over half of British people have placed traveling abroad at the top of their priority list. The poll found that 52% of respondents see abroad adventures as a top priority, while 50% said they would prefer the gift of travel over material gifts.
The same poll also found 46% of Brits plan to do more traveling than usual next year after enduring over 18 months of the COVID pandemic, while 57% of Brits plan to go somewhere they have never gone before.
Rachael Smith added,
“We know that our customers can’t wait to make up for lost time and enjoy the experiences they’ve been missing, and so we are delighted to have launched our very first ‘Advent(ure) Calendar’, to give the gift of travel to a loved one this December.”
All proceeds from the calendar will be donated to Age UK Bedford.
