EasyJet is working on becoming the second operator for Britain on London to Moscow flights and should they achieve this goal, then airline spokesperson Catherine Lynn says they will commit to lowering the airfare. EasyJet is waiting for approval of their application from Britain's Civil Aviation Authority and spokesperson Celine Prenez said that they have already begun discussions with the three international airports in Moscow.
However, easyJet is not the only airline vying for the route. Virgin Atlantic and British Airways have also applied to operate flights to Moscow. But Lynn says that easyJet has proven time and time again over the years that when they move into a market they open it up. She also pointed out that the fares on the route are currently extremely high and will likely remain high if Virgin or British Airways were awarded the traffic rights.
