easyJet named as the Official Airline Partner of the Eurovision Song Contest  

easyJet has been confirmed as the ‘Official Airline Partner’ of the Eurovision Song Contest in a multi-year partnership announced on February 20, 2024. The deal, which lasts until 2026, will see the UK-based low-cost carrier fly thousands of music fans to attend the annual event, which will be held in Malmö, Sweden in May 2024.  

Eurovision is an annual international music contest that in 2024 will pitch artists from 37 countries against each other to win the title of Eurovision champion. The event is said to be the world’s largest live music event and will next take place on May 11, 2024, in front of a global television audience of an expected 170 million people.  

The contest is organized annually by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), a global alliance of public service media companies and broadcasters. The competition, in which participating members of the EBU send a new original song to represent their nation, has taken place every year since 1956 except in 2020. 

Under the sponsorship agreement, easyJet will fly thousands of visitors from across Europe traveling to Sweden for this year’s contest to Copenhagen Airport (CPH) in Denmark. Although across the border from the Swedish host city, the airport allows visitors quick, direct access to Malmö, Sweden, where the live semi-finals and final events will take place on May 7, May 9, and May 11, 2024, respectively.

People, countries, and communities are brought together, anything is possible, and everyone is welcome.” 

“At easyJet, we share all of these important values and are proud to play our part in connecting people across Europe, which we believe makes this partnership the perfect match,” she added.
