Inside the Cockpit
2018 – 2019
In 2018 ITV in partnership with easyJet produced a TV series called “Inside the cockpit” showing close-up the training of a professional pilot. The popularity of the show led to a second season airing in 2019.
Come Fly with Me
2010 – 2011
It is a simple fact that when you become such a strong brand you invite humour and parody.
Stelios himself has been parodied in the ‘Come Fly with Me’ TV series broadcast by the BBC in 2010 and 2011. This featured an airline called ‘Fly Lo’ and its
boss ‘Omar Baba’ played by well known comedian David Walliams of “Little Britain” fame pretending to be Stelios.
Cruise with Stelios
In 2005 in partnership with Sky TV, Stelios produced a TV series called ‘Cruise with Stelios’, featuring the passengers and crew of easyCruiseOne.
1997 – 2007
‘Airline’ a fly-on-the-wall TV docu-soap featuring staff and passengers of easyJet started filming with Stelios in 1998 and was first broadcast on the UK’s ITV channel in 1999.
It ran until a 9th series in 2007 with a total of 205 episodes. In 2003 ‘Airline’ was the most popular factual programme on ITV with over
7.5 million viewers per episode. The theme tune ‘Come fly with me’ brings instant recall of easyJet.
Repeats were still being broadcast as recently as December 2019 on CBS Reality in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The series has been sold and broadcast into many countries around the world including New Zealand, Australia and Japan, increasing the profile and awareness of the easy brand.
