In 2016 easyjet took part, Sunday, January 31st, at the Carnival of Venice's Opening event, the famous Angel's Flight: dressed in orange, the Angel Irene Rizzi, who in 2015 was crowned as Maria del Carnevale has landed from the bell tower of San Marco on the easyJet runway in Piazza San Marco.
EasyJet chose to “play” with Venice even during the 2015 Redentore Feast – the main summer event in the city's programme schedule, finishing on the evening of Saturday, July 18 with a traditional fireworks display in St. Mark's Basin. The company distributed thousands of fans to visitors for a “cool” evening.
easyJet also launched “ScattaVenezia” a photographic competition, where people were invited to capture the city in orange. The best photographs were awarded with free company flights, and an allorange flashmob was organized to celebrate the beauties of Venice at campo Sant'Angelo. Then an amusing photograph was taken from above, thus recapturing the company brand.
All competitors participated at the prizedrawing of a return flight for two people to one of the more than 130 easyJet, European destinations to 7 European countries all leaving directly from the Marco Polo Airport.
Previous editions: In 2014, easyjet is also a star in the lagoon city with the project "2 places to fly", a contest entered by people during the street marketing event, with a prize of two seats on the special "bissona" boat designed by the company, from which they can admire the fireworks of the "Famosissima" of the Redeemer from a spectacular position.
The easyJet boat, in its flagship orange colour, is designed as the Venetian boats that crowd the Basin, in perfect "Redeemer style", with flowers that adorn all sides, paper lantern lights, moved only by the force of the oars.
