The North’s Leading Leisure Airline, Incensed at JetXtra’s Lies

  • CAA Also Refutes JetXtra’s Misleading Claims

Jet2 Plane Taking Off

Over the weekend JetXtra published an article on its website that falsely blamed Jet2.com for the Civil Aviation Authority’s decision to halt its ticket sales, something the CAA has today also confirmed as “entirely untrue”.  The CAA verified that it was acting to stop the sale of any further seats, as JetXtra isn’t licensed to sell airline seats or holidays and therefore its decision had nothing to do with Jet2.com and was made solely to protect consumers.

Steve Lee, Commercial Director at Jet2.com, said: "For JetXtra to claim that Jet2.com was responsible in any way for the cessation of ticket sales is completely untrue and totally misleading.  We had communicated with JetXtra in private over legal concerns. For the managing director to use this correspondence erroneously and publically is amateurish and damaging and a clear example of why we do not want any confusion amongst consumers between JetXtra and Jet2.com.  As an ATOL protected leisure company, Jet2.com adheres to the highest levels of professionalism within all areas of our business.  We are understandably keen to protect the good reputation of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, something we have worked long and hard to build."
