Jet2.com has today announced further expansion at London Stansted Airport for Summer 23, with an extra aircraft coming into operation at the base after the company secured additional slots to support its ongoing growth. 

The addition of a 15th based aircraft enables Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, the UK’s leading tour operator to the Mediterranean, to add flights and holidays to a huge number of sun-soaked destinations across the Balearics, Croatia, Greece and Turkey, giving customers and independent travel agents even more choice and flexibility.  

This expansion means that Jet2.com and Jet2holidays will now operate over 225 weekly flights to 42 destinations from London Stansted Airport in Summer 23.

As a result of today’s expansion, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays will increase capacity to 11 destinations, meaning customers and independent travel agents can be as flexible as they like when it comes to choosing the length of the holiday. The additional flights will operate to: 

  • Balearic Islands – Ibiza, Majorca

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “This expansion is the latest demonstration of our continued commitment to investing in our London Stansted operations. Earlier this year we celebrated five years since the launch of flights and holidays from London Stansted, and since day one the reaction from customers and independent travel agents has been incredible.
