In a vibrant blend of music and air travel, easyJet, the Official Airline of the 2024 Eurovision Song Contest, has partnered with the beloved UK Eurovision entrants, Scooch, to release an original Eurovision-themed song titled ‘All Aboard the Orange Plane’. This initiative comes just in time for the Eurovision Grand Final, scheduled to take place this weekend in Malmö.

The song, crafted by Olivier award-winning comedian and songwriter Vikki Stone and performed by the original members of Scooch, has quickly captured the hearts of fans across the globe. The music video, which revives the aviation theme of their 2007 hit ‘Flying the Flag’, has already amassed over 14 million views, turning it into a viral sensation on social media platforms.

Amidst the buzz it has generated, easyJet has responded to popular demand by making the track available on major streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music. The song’s release is timed perfectly to compete with chart-toppers such as Sabrina Carpenter and Taylor Swift, adding a playful and spirited twist to the musical lineup this season.

The excitement doesn't stop with just a song release. An easyJet flight dedicated to Eurovision superfans turned into an airborne festival of sequins and singalongs, featuring a unique in-flight experience complete with themed baggage drop and a talent show hosted by Drag Race star Tia Kofi.

Furthermore, easyJet is leveraging this catchy tune for a cause. The airline has pledged to donate its royalties from the song to UNICEF, supporting the ‘Every Child Can Fly’ campaign. This effort aims to ensure that every child can access quality education, aligning with UNICEF's goals to provide substantial learning opportunities worldwide.

Michael Brown, Director of Cabin Services at easyJet, expressed his enthusiasm about integrating the Eurovision spirit into their services, emphasizing the airline's role in connecting cultures and communities through this festive partnership. With the Grand Final looming, the airline hopes to continue riding the high notes of their Eurovision song, bringing joy and uniting fans under the banner of music and travel.
