While there have been a few dating apps for pilots and crew, this is the first for passengers.

Lovebirds will be able to match up with fellow fliers at the departure gate or in the sky.

The airline’s founder, billionaire Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, 55, has proved to be an old romantic in the past, wooing Miss Great Britain Brooke Johnston, 14 years his junior, in 2007.

The notoriously private businessman may find the app handy, as he is reportedly single.

But gold-diggers should think twice before ­swiping right.

Sir Haji-­Ioannou is on record as saying: “I have no plans to get married.”

But EasyJet has some form to go by in the love game.

In 2015, student Adaya Cohen, 24, fell for Michael Hoffman, 27, after accusing him of taking her seat on a flight from London to Tel Aviv.

When she asked him to move they got talking – and sparks flew.

Three years later, they went public with the story and now live in London together.

The pair try to only book the same seats, row 12, on any trip they take with Adaya adding: “It’s such a nice story to tell people.

“When they ask where we met and I say ‘On a plane,’ the conversation never ends there.”
