easyJet does not compromise on safety. We have established a leading-edge Safety Management System and Fatigue Risk Management System which are well established and incorporate rigorous reporting processes. Through these systems easyJet works to drive safety performance improvements and reduce risks to its people, passengers and suppliers.
easyJet has long pioneered innovative solutions to improve safety and continues to seeks better ways to support our people to improve safety performance.
Our strong focus on safety has helped easyJet to meet the new regulatory compliance requirements prescribed by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
easyJet continues to work closely with EASA on the development of future safety regulations. This has included easyJet’s Director of Safety and Security being a member of EASA’s taskforce following the Germanwings incident.
In advance of the recommendation of EASA and the UK CAA easyJet implemented measures to ensure at least two crew are in the cockpit at all times during a flight. All easyJet pilots are licensed by their national regulator and as part of this are subject to extensive regular medical assessments. In addition, all easyJet's pilots are constantly scrutinised and monitored from recruitment to training and operating to ensure they are fully fit to operate.
easyJet takes all incidents of disruptive behaviour on-board very seriously. We do not tolerate abusive or threatening behaviour on-board and seeks prosecutions where appropriate. We have established an internal working group on this issue and is also an active participant in the British Air Transport Association group which brings together airlines, airports, airport retailers and the police.
easyJet has also joined the Flight Safety Foundation, an international non-profit organisation whose purpose is to provide impartial, independent, expert safety guidance and resources for the aviation and aerospace industries.
