Jet2holidays, the UK’s largest tour operator, has announced that it is expanding its Free Resort Flight Check-in service to the Canary Islands this summer, weeks after offering the service in Cyprus.
After announcing its plan to resume the service in over 50 hotels initially in Cyprus, Jet2 is now launching the service in Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura in time for this summer. The service will return in over 130 hotels across these four destinations this summer.
Free Resort Flight Check-in is a free and exclusive service from Jet2holidays to take some of the effort out of going home. The service was first launched in 2016, and was temporarily stopped operating due to the pandemic. Customers who choose a hotel offering the service will be able to check-in their bags at the hotel in the morning on their day of departure, leaving the last day of their holiday bag-free.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: ‘Since announcing the return of our Free Resort Flight Check-in service in well over 50 hotels initially in Cyprus, we have received phenomenal feedback from both customers and independent travel agents who have really welcomed the return of the service.
He added: ‘On the back of that, we are delighted to announce that we will be expanding the service to over 130 hotels in the Canary Islands, offering even more customers the opportunity to take advantage of the many benefits of using the free service once again. This smart, secure service makes an enormous difference to the overall holiday experience, as by being luggage-free on the last day of their holiday, customers can enjoy their valuable holiday time, and breeze through the airport before their flight home. As the UK’s largest tour operator, we are always looking at ways to improve the customer journey, and the expansion of our Free Resort Flight Check-in is just another example of how we continue to invest to ensure we deliver the best customer service in the industry.’
After dropping their bags off with Jet2holidays’ Free Resort Flight Check-in Team at their hotel, bags are transported to the airport and stowed onboard. This gives customers time to enjoy themselves at the hotel on the final day and go straight through to security at the airport.
