Jet2.com is set to commence its new summer services to Innsbruck on Saturday, May 28, when the UK-based leisure airline operates its first summer flights to the Tyrolean capital from Birmingham, Manchester and Bristol Airports.
The introduction of summer flights to Innsbruck comes in response from strong and sustained demand for Summer 22 holidays and adds to the company’s existing winter ski programme. Jet2.com will operate up to two weekly services (Wednesday and Saturday) from Manchester Airport to Innsbruck and weekly Saturday services from Birmingham and Bristol Airports from May 28 through to September 17 for Summer 22. It gives holidaymakers access to the Tyrol region as well as the city of Innsbruck in the summer for the first time.
Conveniently located near the airport, Innsbruck appeals to holidaymakers throughout the year and is fast becoming a popular summer holiday destination for British holidaymakers. In the city, holidaymakers can enjoy the sights, shops, and restaurants, stroll through the historic old town, home to the famous Goldenes Dachl (Golden Roof) that was built for Emperor Maximilian I, jump on the Hungerburg funicular railway designed by the late Zaha Hadid, and enjoy the beautiful views from the top of the Nordkette.
Situated in the Austrian Tyrol, the city of Innsbruck features snowy peaks offering holidaymakers a range of sporting activities, including hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, cycling and swimming in the clear mountain lakes. Innsbruck is also known as the gateway to Tyrol region, the heart of the Alps, with many other resorts less than one hour’s drive away. Overall, Tyrol offers an epic 24,000 km of hiking trails, providing plenty of adventure.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: ‘It is fantastic to be operating summer services to Innsbruck for the first time and seeing our first flights for summer take off from Manchester, Birmingham and Bristol Airports. We are continuing to see strong and sustained demand from British holidaymakers looking to get away this summer and the start of our summer programme to Innsbruck offers holidaymakers even more choice. As such, the appeal of the destination, coupled with our perfectly timed flights and award-winning customer service, means these new services are proving extremely popular. Combining medieval architecture, stunning scenery, plenty of action and tasty cuisine, the Austrian city offers it all, whether holidaymakers are looking for adventure, scenery, wellness or simply enjoying the blend of modern and old in Innsbruck.’
The start of summer flights to Innsbruck is part of Jet2.com’s expanded programme for Summer 22. In addition to offering summer services to Innsbruck for the first time, Jet2 is also operating to three other brand-new destinations this summer – Sardinia (Manchester and London Stansted), Sicily (Leeds Bradford, Manchester and London Stansted) and Athens (Birmingham and Manchester).
