Jet2.com has today announced more ski flights from Manchester Airport to the
popular Italian ski destination and host of the 2006 Winter Olympics – Turin.
In response to local skiers jetting off to the slopes, the airline has added a second Saturday service to Turin from the end of December through to April, giving snow sports fans even more chance to get a piste of the action.
The addition of a second Saturday service means that Jet2.com now has three weekly flights to Turin, with services also operating on Sundays. The addition of these flights means that the company now has over 17,000 Turin seats on sale from Manchester Airport this winter.
This is part of a wider ski programme, with more than 100,000 seats available to the best slopes in Europe from Manchester. The company has scheduled a choice of weekday and weekend flights to six ski destinations, with flights perfectly timed for those looking for a weekend or short-break on the slopes.
Key programme developments for winter 2017/18 from Manchester include:
Turin – NOW THREE weekend services, with two flights on a Saturday and one service on a Sunday
Geneva – Up to seven weekly flights including services on Monday, Thursday and Friday.More weekend choices with two flights on Saturdays and Sundays
Andorra (Barcelona) – Up to four weekly flights including services on Monday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday
Grenoble – three weekly services with flights on Saturday and Sunday
Salzburg – three weekly services with flights on Saturday and Sunday
Lyon – weekly Saturday service
The legacy of Turin’s 2006 Winter Olympics means that skiers can enjoy speedy transfers to well-established skiing resorts such as Pila, Vars, Le Corbier and Vald’Isere, each boasting spectacular downhill runs.
This leaves skiers to focus all their energies on the slopes, and with 400km of piste at
the Milky Way area alongside the stunning mountainous backdrop of the Monterosa network, there is plenty to go at.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “Our ski flights to Turin are proving to be enormously popular with skiers from Manchester Airport so we are putting on an extra weekend service in response to that demand. With friendly flight times on a weekend, alongside 22kg of baggage and ski allowance, we’re confident of very busy and popular ski flights to all of our ski destinations, including Turin, from Manchester Airport this winter.”
