Jet2.com, a UK-based low-cost airline that operates out of Leeds Bradford Airport, is expanding its operational base at Glasgow Airport in Scotland.
The airline, which has recently announced the addition of a new aircraft, its fourth to be based out of the airport, has also announced two new routes from Glasgow for its summer schedule in 2013.
Recently, the company announced three new routes from Glasgow airport, to Menorca (Spain), Murcia (Spain) and Pula (Croatia), for airfares commencing from £41 per person.
Steve Heapy, the head of Jet2holidays, the holiday arm of the airline, said, ‘Glasgow is an important base for us, and as we enter our third year, we are delighted to announce more new destinations our customers want. Local holidaymakers have been requesting services to Menorca, Murcia and Pula and we are happy to be offering these amazing destinations for 2013.
We recently announced Bodrum and Gran Canaria, which are also new for next year, meaning passengers have even more fantastic holiday options direct from Glasgow.
Adding our fourth dedicated aircraft is also great news for the area. This will be based at Glasgow ahead of the peak holiday season in May and will allow us to offer these new destinations and even more flying. We’ve already added an additional weekly flight to Bodrum due to strong demand since it was launched just a few months ago. We are also increasing the number of seats available to Majorca, Alicante, Ibiza, Dalaman, Heraklion, Lanzarote and Tenerife.’
Twice weekly flights to Murcia are on sale and will commence from May 24, 2013, with fares starting from £41 per person. Flights to Pula are also on sale with weekly flights set to commence from June 18, 2013.
