New booking process for Jet2.com
New route to Gran Canaria for 2012 from £49.99 and holidays from £300 per person
3-star Christmas Shopping Breaks to New York from £599 per person from Jet2holidays
Jet2.com, the leading leisure airline with friendly low fares, today announced a completely new approach to its flight booking process. Jet2.com has previously shown prices exclusive of taxes and charges but from now on what you see is what you pay.
In an overhaul of its popular website Jet2.com has now launched inclusive pricing - with all taxes and charges now included from the outset so that customers can easily get a sense of their total costs up front. If customers wish to see a breakdown of the fare they are just a click away.
Philip Meeson, boss of Jet2.com said, “We wanted to make our booking process clearer and more straightforward. We now have an approach which is quicker and less complicated as well as giving people the flexibility to be able to tailor their requirements. We’re very pleased with this new site and hope our customers will trial it soon, with our exciting new route to Gran Canaria and our Christmas shopping breaks to New York.
To celebrate the new look booking process today Jet2.com is launching flights Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, from Leeds Bradford which will depart weekly from 28 March to 5 November 2012 with flights from just £49.99 one way including taxes. Families and couples looking for great value package holidays to the island paradise can take advantage of the great offers from sister company Jet2holidays – which combine Jet2.com flights, resort transfers, generous 22kg baggage allowance, handpicked two to five star hotels and ATOL protection – from just £300 per person for seven nights.
The new destination further establishes Jet2.com as Yorkshire’s leading leisure airline, which now has 38 city, sun and ski destinations available from the airport. Gran Canaria is the perfect holiday island with magnificent beaches and breathtaking scenery. The third largest of the Canary Islands, it is renowned for year-round sunshine, making it the ideal hotspot for sun worshippers wanting a great value summer holiday.
Jet2holidays also announced today news that Yorkshire shopaholics will be pleased to hear - the hugely popular New York Christmas Shopping Breaks have returned, following overwhelming demand for the service - which sold out in record time in 2010. Shopping weekends are available for the purse friendly price of £599 per person including return flights, in-flight meals, 10kg hand baggage and three-star hotel accommodation.
Jet2.com return flights to the Big Apple are also available from just £389.98 per person, including taxes and 10kg hand baggage. Hold baggage can be purchased separately at £19.99 each way for a generous 22kg allowance, in-flight entertainment for £15 each way and extra leg-room seats can be selected in advance for £24.99 each way.
Flights will leave from Leeds Bradford to New York’s Newark Airport for two shopping weekends on Thursday 1st December, returning 5th December, and Thursday 8th December, returning 12th December 2011.
Philip Meeson, boss of Jet2.com, commented: “The addition of our new route to Gran Canaria demonstrates our continued investment into Leeds Bradford Airport. At Jet2.com we are committed to providing our Yorkshire passengers with flights and holidays to places they want to visit. Since launching in 2002 we have continued to expand our offering, in particular growing our great range of sun destinations.
“We’re thrilled to be able to repeat our transatlantic Christmas Shopping trips to the Big Apple. We launched our first ever flights from Yorkshire to New York in 2008 and since then demand has increased year on year. Christmas in New York really is something special which is reflected by the high number of repeat bookings, but also with passengers keen to have the experience at least once in their lifetime. I’d urge people to book now – if demand is anything like last year, seats are set to go faster than you can shout ‘Taxi’!”
“I’m also excited to announce that our new look website is now live and we are being completely upfront with customers when it comes to booking flights – the price they see initially is the price they pay, with no hidden charges. This will give our customers greater clarity on the fantastic prices of our flights and make booking a leisure break with us even easier.”
