08th July 2011 • Posted in Announcements

Holidaymakers travelling from Leeds Bradford Airport can now plan their city getaway with Jet2.com to Prague, Nice or Milan for 2012, or even an island break to Jersey.  All four destinations have some unusual and spectacular local celebrations for holidaymakers to experience firsthand.  With prices starting from just £19.99, there’s absolutely no reason to miss the party!

Services to all four destinations will depart four times a week, with flights to Milan starting on 30th March, Nice on 5th May and Jersey on 9th May, while summer flights to Prague will continue from the airline’s winter flying programme.

Those looking for a spring getaway would be well advised to check out Prague’s annual Roma Festival. Starting on 21 May 2012, it promises a five day celebration of Roma culture boasting the best of gypsy music, dance and theatre all rounded off by a parade through the city’s streets.

Alternatively, for holidaymakers seeking a festival closer to home, Jersey’s Battle of the Flowers Carnival, which takes place every August, could be just the ticket.  One of the highlights of the Channel Island summer, carnival goers can enjoy a parade of spectacular flower festooned floats, dancers and entertainers, along with music from dozens of bands.

Meanwhile, for events where music takes centre stage, music lovers will enjoy Nice’s internationally acclaimed jazz festival at the end of July in the lovely Parc de Cimiez which draws jazz aficionados and musicians from around the world.  Alternatively,  Milan’s Cornetto Free Music Festival in May attracts international stars as well as providing a platform for new talent.

Steve Heapy, chief commercial officer of Jet2.com, commented: “We know that for many people experiencing local events at first hand is a highlight of their holiday and this is one of the reasons we try to give our customers maximum flexibility by putting flights on sale nice and early. By booking in advance, you can be sure to secure the best tickets in town and you’ve also got the added bonus of plenty of time to look forward to it – which is half the fun!”

Tony Hallwood, Leeds Bradford International Airport's commercial director, said: “We welcome Jet2.com’s decision to place on sale flights to four key city breaks and favourite holiday destinations for Summer 2012.

“Planning for that well earned break with family or friends in the exciting cities of Prague, Rome, Nice and on the island of Jersey can become a truly spectacular event when linked to visiting at festival time.''
