EasyGroup Ltd v Easy Fly Express Ltd and another

Jurisdiction – Company. The defendants' application for an order that the court had no jurisdiction to hear the claim against it by the claimant company which was the proprietor of trade marks including 'Easyjet' and 'easyFlights' or, alternatively, that it ought not to exercise any jurisdiction that it might have, succeeded. The Chancery Division held that the first defendant company, which was a small cargo airline operating mainly in Bangladesh, had never offered flights to Europe and had had no intention to do so, nor of targeting EU or UK customers.
