With exactly one month until Christmas, and Jet2CityBreaks today treated customers with Christmas jumpers, carol singers, and a celebrity at the launch of our new Leeds Bradford to Berlin route.

Customers on our first flight to Berlin were given a big surprise when Alan Halsall, who plays Coronation Street favourite Tyrone Dobbs, turned up to hand out specially made Christmas jumpers. As well as equipping customers with cosy jumpers for their visit to the Christmas Markets of Berlin, we also arranged for a group of carol singers to help send them off in festive spirits, by serenading them with a medley of Christmas classics.

Launching today, will operate twice weekly flights (Monday and Friday) all year round to Berlin from Leeds Bradford Airport. Flights start at £33 per person including taxes, and Jet2CityBreaks flight and hotel packages can be booked today with a low £60 per person deposit.

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays, said: “With the introduction of this brand new route to Berlin from Leeds Bradford Airport, as Yorkshire’s biggest airline we are giving local customers even more choice than ever. On top of our range of fantastic destinations, we are dedicated to giving our customers memorable experiences, so what better way to start a Christmas Markets break than with their very own special Christmas jumper and carol singers to send them on their way?”

Alan Halsall said: “I’m thrilled to have helped and Jet2CityBreaks who I travel with often. I’ve had a fantastic time surprising lots of happy passengers on this first flight to Berlin and I hope these treats help make their festive breaks even more Christmassy. With Christmas jumpers and carol singers to serenade these lucky customers, I can’t wait for the big day to arrive now!”
