Customers on today’s flights from both bases were given the type of VIP customer experience at check-in that has resulted in the companies winning multiple awards. This included a red-carpet welcome, a balloon arch and a number five shaped birthday cake, which was sliced and handed out to customers before departing to their destinations.

In addition to that, five groups of lucky customers were also given a free pair of Jet2.com flight vouchers at each of the bases.
