Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks, the UK leisure airline and operator of European City Breaks, has said that it has more than doubled its flying programme to Nice from Birmingham, Leeds Bradford and Manchester.
In response to strong customer demand for Summer 23, Jet2 has added a new route to Nice from Birmingham Airport and doubled the frequency of services from Leeds Bradford Airport, in addition to extra flights from Manchester Airport for the Rugby World Cup in September.
The expansion means Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks are offering up to seven weekly services to Nice for Summer 23 and giving customers and independent travel agents more choice and flexibility to access the glamour of the world-famous French Riviera.
As part of the expanded solution, from Birmingham Jet2 has added a brand-new and exclusive route to Nice, offering up to two weekly services (Monday and Friday). From Leeds Bradford, Jet2 introduced a second weekly service doubling the frequency to Nice for Summer 23 with up to two weekly services (Monday and Friday) from May 26, 2023 and October 16 2023. From Manchester, Jet2 has introduced an extra Monday and Friday services to Nice from September 8 to 25, 2023, offering two daily services on these days during this period. The new flights are timed for rugby fans looking to travel to France for the Rugby World Cup.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: ‘Customers have been flocking to book Summer 23 fights and city breaks, with Nice being a very popular holiday choice for next year. As always, we have been quick to respond to this demand and have more than doubled our flying programme to Nice from three UK bases. Our Summer 23 programme is already offering customers and independent travel agents lots of choice and flexibility, and we are pleased to be expanding this even further.
He added: ‘Nice is proving to be a much sought-after city break destination for Summer 23, thanks to its picturesque port, enchanting old town, and the glitz of Cannes and Monaco nearby. Given the Monaco Grand Prix taking place in May and the Rugby World Cup in September too, we are also anticipating the destination to be a huge hit with sports enthusiasts heading to Nice during this time. With holidaymakers flocking to book their getaways for next summer, we are expecting a very busy Summer 23. This demand combined with our award-winning customer service, means we are confident that this expanded programme to Nice will be popular with both customers and independent travel agents.’
