Jet2.com, a UK-based low-cost airline operating out of Leeds Bradford Airport, has announced new flight schedules for its winter season of 2012.
The airline is offering four new routes, to Grenoble, in France, from Manchester Airport and Leeds Bradford Airport, in the UK; and Chambery, in France, and Geneva, in Switzerland, from East Midlands Airport.
The Grenoble from Manchester and Leeds Bradford airport routes are available for purchase from £31.99 per person and free ski carriage, while Chambery and Geneva flights from East Midlands are offered on sale from £36.99 per person.
The new flights from Manchester Airport are available twice weekly, from December 16, 2012 to April 14, 2013, while weekly flights from Leeds Bradford Airport are available from December 15, 2012 to April 13, 2013.
Steve Heapy, the airline chief commercial officer, said, ‘Our ski flights are becoming increasing popular, especially with Manchester and Yorkshire passengers, which is why we decided to add Grenoble to our growing portfolio of top European ski destinations from these two bases. We’re also thrilled to launch the new routes of Chambery and Geneva from East Midlands Airport, especially in light of the cancellation of bmibaby services – we want to bring continuity to local skiers who still want the convenience of a snow escape direct from their local airport.
We take pride in being a ski friendly airline providing unrivalled access to Europe’s finest ski resorts. Our great range of destinations, combined with our generous 22kg baggage allowance plus morning flight times – meaning people can hit the slopes as soon as they arrive – undoubtedly makes us the number one choice for ski fans.’
