Jet2holidays has scooped a prestigious industry award for the third year in a row, after winning the Best Tour Operator award at this year’s GRAFTAS, which celebrate the best in travel and tourism across the North East.
The award – which follows accolades in 2016 and 2017 – once again demonstrates the travel industry’s recognition of Jet2holidays’ partnership approach to working with independent travel agencies in the North East, and highlights Jet2holidays commitment to delivering a VIP experience for their customers.
The GRAFTA awards are based on the votes of those working in the travel industry, with over 200 agents and operators coming together for the ceremony held at the Hilton Gateshead.
Jet2holidays, the UK’s second largest tour operator, has enjoyed years of successive growth at Newcastle Airport thanks to the popularity of its ATOL-protected package holidays you can trust with independent travel agents and customers across the North East.
This growth is set to continue with Jet2.com and Jet2holidays operating its biggest ever flights and holidays programme from Newcastle Airport for Summer 2019, with almost ONE MILLION seats on sale to 32 destinations including exciting new destinations – Bourgas in Bulgaria and Izmir in Turkey.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “It is an absolute honour to be awarded the Best Tour Operator accolade for the third year running and we would like to thank the organisers of the GRAFTAS, as well as independent travel agents across the North East. With their support we are able to enjoy repeat successes such as this award win, and we look forward to working in partnership with independent travel agents to enjoy more success and growth together in the future.
“The GRAFTAS are an excellent showcase of travel and tourism in the region and it was great to celebrate yet another successful year for Jet2holidays from Newcastle Airport by winning this award. It comes at a time when we are gearing up for our biggest ever flights and holidays programme from Newcastle Airport, meaning more holidaymakers than ever can enjoy our fantastic package holidays in resorts across Europe, the Canaries and the Mediterranean, all for a low £60 per person deposit.”
