Our Biggest Ever Winter Programme is Now On Sale!

26th October 2016

Today is another step in Jet2.com and Jet2holidays’ ongoing expansion, with the launch of our biggest ever winter flights and holidays programme for 2017/18

We are adding over ONE MILLION EXTRA SEATS on our Winter 17/18 programme, with 11 brand new routes, more flights and extended season lengths to popular destinations. As of today, a total of 3.3 MILLION seats are now on sale to a choice of 30 winter warmers, cool cities and super ski destinations across the Mediterranean and Europe, which represents a massive 45% growth.

The programme means Jet2holidays is offering its largest ever winter range, and with everything wrapped up in one package, holidaymakers have access to great value package breaks across thousands of 2-5 star hotels, with Jet2.com flights, industry leading 22kg baggage allowance and airport transfers included, through a £60 per person deposit. Offering full ATOL protection, Jet2holidays also includes free infant places on all holidays as well as 0% credit card fees.

11 Brand New Routes

Next winter will see our first ever winter services from our two brand new bases, London Stansted and Birmingham. Our Winter 17/18 programme also features 11 brand new routes, which are:

  • Geneva and Salzburg from London Stansted Airport
  • Madeira from Edinburgh Airport
  • Turin from Leeds Bradford Airport
  • Madeira, Grenoble, Geneva, Salzburg, Turin, Krakow and Prague from Birmingham Airport

Much More Winter Sunshine

Our programme has more flights and holidays to popular sunshine destinations than ever before, with ONE MILLION seats to the Canary Islands alone. There are more flights and extended programmes to other top destinations including Alicante, Cyprus, Faro, Malaga and Palma, so you have more opportunity than ever to grab some winter sunshine.

Biggest ever ski programme & Europe’s best cities

The programme is not all about the sunshine. On the back of our biggest ever ski programme this winter this year, an additional 100,000 ski seats will be added to our Winter 17/18 programme. This includes four brand new routes from Birmingham Airport (Grenoble, Geneva, Salzburg and Turin), two brand new routes from London Stansted Airport (Geneva and Salzburg) and one brand new route from Leeds Bradford Airport (Turin).

The popularity of Jet2CityBreaks means more breaks to fabulous city destinations such as Barcelona, Rome and Venice are available next winter, including brand new routes to Krakow and Prague from new base Birmingham Airport.

This is the latest in a number of growth announcements that we have made this year. We have launched two new bases at Birmingham and London Stansted Airports, along with the purchase of 30 new Boeing 737-800 airplanes and the creation of around 1,000 new jobs. In addition to today’s announcement, we launched our biggest ever Summer programme for 2017 earlier this year, and the accolades have been pouring in, with Jet2.com been voted the ‘UK’s Top Airline’ and ‘Most Loved Airline’ by users of TripAdvisor and Skytrax respectively.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “This is a very exciting time for Jet2.com and Jet2holidays and today’s announcement is yet another step on our ambitious growth plans. Following our recent expansion into Birmingham and London Stansted Airports, we’re continuing to provide holidaymakers with more choice than ever, thanks to our biggest ever winter programme. This programme gives Britons more opportunities to visit their favourite sun and city destinations all-year-round, as well as more choice for hitting the best slopes in Europe. With the increased number of flights and holiday options available, we’re delighted to offer customers the chance to enjoy the best that Europe has to offer on our award winning airline.”
