British budget airline EasyJet announced a global connections service on Wednesday that will enable passengers to book connecting tickets from Europe to and from worldwide destinations.

The service is subject to a 2 hour 30 minute "Minimum Connection Time", which will give customers plenty of time to transfer between flights and/or terminals. So far, EasyJet's teamed up with U.S. carrier WestJet and Norwegian, which means you'll be able to book flights to North and South America as well as Singapore.

EasyJet has struck a partnership with Canada's WestJet airline and Norwegian Air that will allow passengers to book long-haul connecting flights to destinations like NY and Singapore in a move that significantly expands the low-priced carrier's network.

Norwegian's long-haul network now includes more than 55 routes from Europe to long-haul locations, while EasyJet flies on more of Europe's 100 largest routes than any other airline. That's c.1% of our passengers at the airport and that doesn't include those connecting between easyJet and long haul flights."We are delighted with the partners who have signed up for our launch today".

Many of its customers already connect with EasyJet flights under their own steam, the airline said, but now it should be easier to buy a through ticket from the beginning of the journey to the final destination.

"It gives passengers more choice, provides genuine savings and takes the hassle out of self-connecting by protecting against missed connections, putting baggage on the onward flight and offering a range of other hospitality benefits", he said. Technology partner Dohop will be providing the technology platform for Worldwide by easyJet.
