The year-long deal, which comes into effect from today, will aim to deliver low cost, flexible fares.

Carolyn McCall, chief executive of easyJet, said: "We believe this new deal will not only help give MPs and Peers easy and affordable travel but will also safeguard the taxpayers’ purse.

"We know that many MPs, peers and Government ministers already fly with easyJet. This deal will make it easier and more cost effective than ever before. We are sure they will vote with their feet and travel with easyJet across Europe".
