Flying a charter flight on behalf of the local Regional Council of the Somme, the Boeing 737-300 took invited guests to Albert for the day to showcase the airport and its facilities as well as promoting itself as an entry airport for the region.
The flight was a great success and both the passengers and crew were impressed with the facilities offered. The Regional Council of the Somme were very pleased with Jet2.com’s efforts and hope that it will lead to more regular charters operating on behalf of UK tour operators promoting battlefield tours within the area.
