You’re probably used to only seeing trolleys full of goods rolling down airplane and train aisles. This Christmas, easyJet have decided to take the wonderful sound of the rolling trolley wheels to an all-new location: retirement homes and villages.
With recent research showing 1.4 million older people expect to feel lonely at Christmas, easyJet’s festive service aims to bring some seasonal cheer to residents of retirement homes and villages up and down the country.
The trolleys will be delivering a range of festive treats including mince pies, mulled wine and hot chocolate, with a side of Christmas carolling to complete the festive experience. Following an initial trial in the Luton area, the service is also being rolled out in Bristol, Manchester and Glasgow in December, all to bring festive cheer to the local communities the airline serves.

Speaking about the visit, Jennifer Heseltine, a resident said: “We absolutely loved the visit from easyJet’s cabin crew. It truly made our week, and most of us haven’t stopped talking about it since. The whole experience was such a treat, and we all got stuck into the carolling”
Pam Clark, a Cabin Manager for easyJet who is based in Luton said about bringing the service to Wixams: “Making our customers feel welcome and giving them a fantastic experience when they fly with us is a really important part of what we do and so I loved being part of this initiative as it meant I could bring that famous inflight service to my very own community and spark a little extra joy this Christmas.”
Michael Brown, Director of Cabin Services at easyJet, said: “Our fantastic cabin crew are big part of the community in the cities we fly from all across the UK, from Luton to Liverpool, Gatwick to Glasgow, Bristol to Belfast and so many cities in between. So, this Christmas, we wanted to take the opportunity to give back to communities we serve and bring the warm welcome and fabulous service our cabin crew are famous for directly to their doors, to share some extra special festive cheer.”
