Jet2 commences holiday flights to sun destinations

Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, the leisure airline and package holiday specialist, has said that it has recommenced its flights and holidays programme to four sunny hotspots, following the latest UK Government advice on international travel.

Jet2 has commenced the service of 22 flights from Belfast International, Birmingham, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, London Stansted, Manchester, and Newcastle Airports, with customers travelling to Green List destinations, including the Balearic Islands (Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza) and Madeira. This is in addition to the company’s programme of flights and holidays already operating to Jersey. Starting July 2, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays will also start operations from its tenth UK base, Bristol Airport, flying customers to Majorca and Menorca on their first ever flights from the base.

Following reports that the Balearic Islands (Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza), Malta and Madeira have been put onto the Green List, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays reported a huge increase in bookings to these destinations, with customers booking for July and August holidays. Jet2.com and Jet2holidays has also put additional flights on sale to Madeira, representing thousands of extra seats on sale in July and August from Birmingham and Leeds Bradford Airports.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: ‘We are delighted to see our flights take off again today and to be resuming our award-winning flights and holidays programme to the Balearic Islands (Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza) and Madeira. We have seen 22 flights depart from Belfast International, Birmingham, Glasgow, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Manchester, Newcastle and London Stansted today, and we have been filling those flights up thanks to a surge in bookings for flights and holidays in July and August.

‘We know how much pent-up demand there is from our customers and independent travel agents to enjoy our award-winning flights and real package holidays once again, and we have already added extra flights to Madeira to cope with demand. It is fantastic to be back in the air and doing what we do best – delivering award winning customer service and package holidays you can trust! We look forward to more destinations being added to the UK’s Green List very soon and taking more customers away on their much-needed holidays.’
