Ski, Announcements

As the ski season draws closer, is making it easier than ever to hit the slopes. This winter, we are operating our biggest ever ski programme, with more seats than ever to over 600 ski resorts. On top of that, we are also delighted to announce an exciting partnership with Snow Factor Braehead, Scotland’s only year-round snowsport resort, as well as a fantastic ski carriage offer.

Our biggest ever ski season will see us operating weekly flights to 8 top ski destinations: Geneva, Grenoble, Lyon, Salzburg, Turin, Verona, Andorra (Barcelona) plus BRAND NEW for 2016/17, Sofia (Bulgaria).

Ahead of this, customers can take advantage of a fabulous offer, checking in 22kg of ski carriage allowance for just £1*!

Not content with all of this, we have also bolstered our ski credentials by partnering with Snow Factor Braehead, which is located just ten minutes from Glasgow City centre and is the only snowsport resort in Scotland that is open all year round. This means skiers and snowboarders of all abilities can take off, perhaps like Marc McClement, who is pictured here getting some serious air over an astonished Alison Ramsay from our Cabin Crew team in Glasgow. The partnership means Jet2 passengers are able to get 20% off Snow Factor ski passes and get some practice in before jetting off to hit the slopes on our biggest ever ski programme.

The key developments to our ski programme for winter 2016/17 are:

  • Scotland – Almost 40,000 additional ski seats, including new destination Turin plus flights to Geneva, Salzburg and Verona from Edinburgh and two new destinations, Geneva and Grenoble, from Glasgow.
  • East Midlands – over 20,000 extra ski seats with flights to Geneva, Grenoble and Salzburg.
  • Leeds Bradford – largest ski operator in Yorkshire, with over 12,000 more ski seats to four destinations – Geneva, Grenoble, Salzburg and Andorra (Barcelona).
  • Manchester – huge capacity increase with almost 50,000 more ski seats to seven destinations - Andorra (Barcelona), Geneva, Grenoble, Lyon, Salzburg, Turin and brand new Sofia.
  • Newcastle – NEW destination Grenoble.

In addition to these fantastic ski destinations, customers can also look forward to great flight times, 0% credit card fees and a brand new ski website ( which has information on over 80 top resorts, including the number of ski runs, ski difficulty, and distances to nearest airports.

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays said: “We are launching our biggest ever ski programme and want to do everything we can so that Britons can flock to the slopes this winter. This is why we’ve expanded our capacity, unveiled a brand new ski website, and introduced a market leading 22kg of ski carriage allowance for just £1.
