The previous run of the campaign witnessed significant engagement, with over 60 successful bidders securing holidays to various destinations such as the Canary Islands, Greece, Cyprus, Spain, the Algarve, and Turkey.

The first vacation up for bidding will be a seven-night stay for two adults and two children at the Aska Lara Resort & Spa in Antalya. Subsequent holidays will span across diverse destinations like the Costa Blanca, Crete (Chania), Prague, Majorca, and the Algarve.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: ‘Since its launch, our ‘Bid for a Break’ campaign has been extremely popular with holidaymakers, so we are delighted to announce that it is returning every weekday and weekend throughout September, with 30 holidays up for grabs. The campaign is highly sought-after, and customers will be excited for its bumper return. For this reason, we have absolute confidence it will prove to be a big hit once again.

Ryanair announces Summer 2022 schedule at East Midlands, Winter Sun seat sale

Ryanair has announced its Summer 2022 schedule from East Midlands Airport with over 30 routes and 130 weekly flights across 31 European destinations from April.

With the new schedule, UK families and travellers can now book a summer holiday to European hotspots such as Alicante, Barcelona, Lanzarote, Malaga, Mallorca, Rhodes and Tenerife, among others. Alongside the announcement, Ryanair has launched a £19.99 seat sale for travel until the end of October 2022, which must be booked by midnight Saturday, November 6. Tickets are available to book at www.ryanair.com.

Ryanair’s Director of Commercial, Jason McGuinness, said: ‘As Europe’s No.1 airline, we are pleased to extend our partnership with East Midlands Airport and announce our Summer 2022 schedule, connecting UK families to a host of European hotspots for their much deserved Summer 2022 holiday.

We are launching a seat sale to celebrate the Summer 2022 schedule from East Midlands Airport, with fares available from just £19.99 for travel until the end of October 2022 which must be booked on the Ryanair website by midnight Saturday, 6th November 2021. Our customers can now book a Summer getaway to the likes of Alicante, Chania, Lanzarote, Malaga, Mallorca, Rome, Tenerife and many more on amazing low fares.

While Ryanair welcomes the UK Govt’s decision to reduce domestic APD from Summer 2023, it is neither sufficient nor timely enough to kickstart the UK’s tourism recovery, particularly for Summer 2022. Unfortunately, this delay will only damage the airline industry’s ability to rapidly rebuild connectivity, jobs and tourism.

Ryanair calls on the UK Govt to immediately abolish APD for all travel, which would give both tourism and domestic UK connectivity a much-needed boost for this Winter and next Summer.’

Ryanair has also launched a Winter Sun seat sale, with over 530 routes to choose from across the Ryanair network. With over 80,000 seats available, British travellers and can choose from a range of winter sun destinations including Faro, Lanzarote, Malaga and Tenerife this November and December, for fares from £9.99.
