Jet2 have announced that they are expanding their Summer 23 programme and announcing a 23rd based aircraft at the base to support this growth.
The leading leisure airline and UK’s leading tour operator to many leisure destinations across the Mediterranean and Canary Islands are announcing an expanded programme for Summer 23, meaning local customers and independent travel agents can now choose from 55 sun and city destinations for Summer 23, including brand-new Tivat.
Strong demand for flights and ATOL protected package holidays from Manchester Airport means Jet2 have expanded their existing programmes to favourites such as the Canary Islands, Greece and Turkey from the base for Summer 23 too – with more frequent flying to these popular destinations giving holidaymakers and independent travel agents even more choice and flexibility.
The expanded programme means up to 39 weekly flights to the Canary Islands, up to 53 weekly flights to the Balearic Islands, up to 76 weekly flights to 15 Greek destinations, up to 42 weekly flights to Turkey and up to 24 weekly flights to seven Italian destinations during peak times.
Jet2 are increasing capacity by 7% compared to Summer 22, with over 3.6 million seats now on sale from Manchester Airport in Summer 23. With over 325 weekly flights departing during peak periods, a 23rd based aircraft will come into operation in Summer 23 to fly more local holidaymakers away to the sunshine.
Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have seen continued 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. Last week, both companies were recognised as Which? Travel Brand of the Year for the way the companies have looked after customers and independent travel agents, both during the pandemic as well as now that international travel has reopened.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said:
“We are continuing to experience enormous demand for our award-winning flights and holidays from Manchester Airport, and as always we are quick to respond to that demand by adding capacity. Summer 23 will see a 23rd based aircraft come into our fleet at Manchester Airport, meaning local holidaymakers and independent travel agents have even more choice and flexibility. The addition of Tivat really expands our offering, taking the number of sun and city destinations we have on sale from the base to 55. In addition to flying customers to their favourite holiday destinations from Manchester Airport, we continue to have a laser focus on delivering the very best experience so that customers choose us time and time again.”
