Budget airline EasyJet yesterday offered to fly Pope Benedict XVI to the UK following the recent controversy surrounding his viewpoints on British Equality laws and estimated cost of his visit.
Pope Benedicts confirmed on Monday that he plans to visit Britain, a first visit of its kind in 28 years. However the visit from His Holiness comes at a price. It was estimated that the visit would cost British taxpayers roughly £20 Million.


EasyJet took the initiative to contact the Vatican offering the Pope a free flight to London. The airline said in a statement: “We are confident that once he has tried easyJet, His Holiness will never look back,” They are reportedly waiting for a response.
Pope Benedict recently caused controversy after he sent a letter to the Bishops of England and Wales were he spoke about the new British equal opportunity laws. He was believed to be referring to the law which stops all adoption agencies from discriminating gay couples, which came into action in January 2009, he said it “violates the natural law upon which the equality of all human beings is grounded.”
