The weekly Monday morning service follows hot on the heels of Jet2.com's highly successful Manchester to Madeira route which started this year.
Holidaymakers can also take advantage of holiday packages with Jet2holidays.com from £299* per person for a 7 night 3 star break starting from May 3rd 2011.
An archipelago off the coast of Portugal, Madeira offers year-round sunshine as well as beautiful natural beaches, rugged coastlines, volcanic caves and breathtaking views. Ideal for water sport enthusiasts, the islands Atlantic location offers the perfect spot for diving, fishing, surfing, whale and dolphin spotting as well as one of Europe's first underwater nature reserves on the Garajau coast line. Holidaymakers can also take advantage of Madeiras capital, Funchal, which provides a host of shopping opportunities as well as bustling squares and streets with an abundance of great restaurants with fantastic local cuisine.
Philip Meeson, boss at Jet2.com said I'm thrilled to bring the island of Madeira to the people of Yorkshire - it really does have something for everyone and is only a few hours flight away. Our Manchester to Funchal route has been so incredibly popular and I'm sure that our Leeds-Bradford route will be just as a big a hit!"
