- Bag a
bargain and get the best snow on the slopes with Jet2.com
- Flights to
Geneva, Chambery, and Salzburg are on sale now from £29.99
It may be the summer
holidays, but for avid skiers and snowboarders the real highlight of the year -
the winter season - isn’t that far away.Bargain hunters dreaming of heading to the snow can now book great value
flights from the North’s leading leisure airline Jet2.com
to top ski resorts in the Alps from December 2011 to April 2012.
Jet2.com will start
flying a new direct route from Glasgow to Geneva this
December flying up to three times per week during the season and from Edinburgh
up to twice a week. The flights mean that some of the Alps’ most extensive ski
areas and with the best snow records will be just a couple of hours away and
from the wallet friendly price of just £29.99 one way including taxes. With
long range weather forecasts predicting cold weather and lots of snow this winter,
what better reason to head for the hills and get a ‘piste’ of the action?
Geneva is close to some of the best resorts in the Alps including
Morzine – Avoriaz, Chamonix, Verbier and Italy’s Courmayeur, at the base of breathtaking Mont Blanc. Meanwhile, Chambery is the gateway to some of the most superb skiing
in France – including the resorts of Tignes,
Val d'Isere, Meribel and Val Thorens.
Finally, Salzburg is ideal
for the snow-capped peaks of Austria and with 130 resorts in a three radius,
including Schladming, Zell am See, Kitzbuhel and Saalbach, there is something
for all abilities.
Ian Doubtfire, managing
director at Jet2.com said: “We’re delighted
to offer a new route to Geneva from Glasgow this winter and flights to Chambery
and Salzburg from Edinburgh – there are a great range of resorts for Scottish
skiers to choose from.
proud of Jet2.com’s generous 22kg baggage allowance which means there’s
plenty of room for bulky ski gear. The friendly flight times are all carefully
scheduled to get passengers to the resorts and out on the snow the day they
arrive. And with all Jet2.com flights, customers don’t
need to rush for a seat as they are pre-allocated - we want to make sure any
racing is done on the piste and not to get on the aircraft!”
Flights to all three
destinations start in December 2011 and run until April 2012, so there’s plenty
of time to squeeze in a weekend break with friends or a week-long family
holiday with the kids.
