The leading leisure airline and package holiday company is building on its 2016 success by adding over ONE MILLION EXTRA SEATS for its Winter 17/18 programme, with 11 brand new routes, more flights and extended season lengths to popular destinations. In total 3.3 MILLION seats are now on sale, giving agency partners access to a choice of 30 winter warmers, cool cities and super ski destinations across the Mediterranean and Europe. The growth represents an incredible 45% uplift on this year.
The programme means Jet2holidays is offering its largest ever winter range, and with everything wrapped up in one package, travel agents have access to great value package breaks across thousands of 2-5 star hotels, with Jet2.com flights, industry leading 22kg baggage allowance and airport transfers included, through a £60 per person deposit. Offering full ATOL protection, Jet2holidays also includes free infant places on all holidays.
Next winter will see Jet2.com and Jet2holidays operate their first ever winter services from its two brand new bases, London Stansted and Birmingham. The programme also features 11 brand new routes, which are:
The programme has more flights and holidays to popular sunshine destinations than ever before, with ONE MILLION seats to the Canary Islands alone. There are more flights and extended programmes to other top destinations including Alicante, Cyprus, Faro, Malaga and Palma, so customers have more opportunity than ever to grab some winter sunshine.
The programme is not all about the sunshine however. On the back of its biggest ever ski programme this winter this year, an additional 100,000 ski seats will be added to the company’s Winter 17/18 programme. This includes four brand new routes from Birmingham Airport (Grenoble, Geneva, Salzburg and Turin), two brand new routes from London Stansted Airport (Geneva and Salzburg) and one brand new route from Leeds Bradford Airport (Turin). The popularity of Jet2CityBreaks means more breaks to fabulous city destinations such as Barcelona, Rome and Venice are available next winter, including brand new routes to Krakow and Prague from new base Birmingham Airport.
This is the latest in a number of growth announcements from Jet2.com and Jet2.holidays this year. The company has launched two new bases at Birmingham and London Stansted Airports, along with the purchase of 30 new Boeing 737-800 airplanes and the creation of around 1,000 new jobs. In addition to today’s announcement, the company launched its biggest ever Summer programme for 2017 earlier this year, and the accolades have been pouring in, with Jet2.com been voted the ‘UK’s Top Airline’ and ‘Most Loved Airline’ by users of TripAdvisor and Skytrax respectively.
Alan Cross, Head of Trade at Jet2holidays, said: “This is yet further evidence of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays continuing to provide our agency partners with more opportunities than ever to grow their business. Our biggest ever winter programme gives travel agents everything, from brand new routes, to more choice than ever on flights and package holidays to fantastic winter sun, ski and city break destinations. This comes just one month before our annual VIP travel agent conference in Cyprus where we’ll be showcasing everything that Jet2holidays can offer, and our Winter 17/18 programme will play a huge part in that.”
