Airline’s wedding plans scrapped1 June 2009
Budget airline easyJet will not be able to offer couples the chance to get married in the skies after a Bedfordshire council rejected the plan.
The company applied to Luton Borough Council for pilots to be authorised to officiate wedding ceremonies.
But a council spokeswoman said the law did not allow a civil partnership or marriage to take place on an aircraft.
The airline said it had received a number of requests from couples hoping to marry in the air and they had hoped to appeal to people looking to get married “somewhere out of the ordinary“.
