Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, the UK-based leisure airline and tour operator, have announced a significant expansion of their Summer 2024 programme at Manchester Airport, introducing additional flights and holiday options to meet the rising demand for travel.
Covering popular destinations such as the Canary Islands, Mainland Spain, Bulgaria, Greece, and Italy, the expansion includes the addition of extra seats on flights to Lanzarote, Alicante, Bulgaria (Bourgas), Corfu, Crete (Chania and Heraklion), Kos, Sardinia, and Reus, providing travellers with a more extensive selection for their summer vacations. This strategic initiative is a direct response to growing enthusiasm among holidaymakers who are actively booking flights and ATOL-protected package holidays for the upcoming summer season.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: ‘We are seeing strong and sustained demand for Summer 24 across the board, with flights and holidays proving very popular from Manchester Airport. As the UK’s largest tour operator, we have reacted quickly to that demand by adding extra capacity to a host of sunshine favourites from the airport. With even more choice and flexibility, we are giving holidaymakers plenty of opportunity to get away on our award-winning flights and holidays next summer. By adding additional services to popular summer destinations, we are giving customers exactly what they want, and we know just how much they will be jumping at the chance to get away.’
The expansion is set to offer customers and travel agents in the North West heightened flexibility and a broader range of options for planning their summer getaways. With over 340 weekly flights during peak periods and more than 3.8 million seats, Summer 2024 is the most extensive programme ever undertaken by Jet2.com and Jet2holidays at Manchester Airport. This signifies a substantial increase of nearly 100,000 seats compared to the previous summer.
