New Routes, Announcements

Jet2.com

Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have responded to strong demand for flights and holidays, by announcing a significantly expanded programme for Summer 23 from three of their UK bases. The companies are today announcing more flights, more holidays and brand-new destinations for next summer from Glasgow, East Midlands and Bristol Airports, with an additional aircraft coming into operation at each of the three bases to support the extension.  

The leading leisure airline and UK’s leading tour operator to many destinations across the Mediterranean and Canary Islands have added brand-new Girona (Costa Brava) from Glasgow Airport, Malaga and Chania (Crete) from Bristol Airport, and Santorini from East Midlands Airport. Overall, the companies are offering customers and independent travel agents a choice of 52 sunshine destinations from across their network of ten UK bases for Summer 23. 

Strong demand for flights and ATOL protected package holidays means Jet2.com and Jet2holidays are significantly expanding their existing programmes from the three bases to sunshine favourites such as the Canary Islands, Balearic Islands, Mainland Spain, Greece, Malta and Turkey for Summer 23 too – giving customers and independent travel agents even more choice and flexibility when booking their next getaway. 

Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have reported the unlocking of enormous pent-up demand from holidaymakers on the back of international travel returning to normal. The assurance of an ATOL protected package holiday is also proving to be popular with customers, as is booking through a reputable provider that has looked after customers during the pandemic. 

Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have been widely praised and commended for their handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, including swiftly refunding customers who have had their flights or holidays cancelled. Most recently, both companies were once again awarded with Which? Recommended Provider status for the way they have looked after customers and independent travel agents. The Institute of Customer Service recently ranked Jet2holidays as the best UK tour operator and Jet2.com as the best UK airline for providing customer service. Jet2.com and Jet2holidays were also ranked as the Best Travel Firms for providing refunds according to a survey of respondents by Money Saving Expert, and the UK Civil Aviation Authority has recognised Jet2.com as the only UK airline to provide prompt refunds.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “We always knew that when international travel returned to normal, customers and independent travel agents would respond by flocking to book our award-winning flights and holidays. As such, we are experiencing strong demand across all seasons and with Summer 23 looking so popular, we are in the position to respond with a massively expanded programme from Bristol, East Midlands and Glasgow Airports. Such an expansion would not be possible without customers choosing to travel with us in huge numbers, so I would like to sincerely thank our customers and independent travel agent partners for their continued support. I can promise them that our unwavering focus will continue to be on delivering the VIP customer service that has made such a swift and significant impact.”
