Jet2.com and Jet2holidays add more Summer 21 capacity to Jersey
From Jersey Airport
20th August 2021
Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have added more summer flights and holidays to Jersey, in response to continued demand from customers and independent travel agents.
The leading tour operator to destinations across Europe, the Canary Islands and the Mediterranean has added capacity in the late-summer period to Jersey, representing additional flights and an extended season from across two UK bases (Leeds Bradford and Newcastle).
Jet2.com and Jet2holidays recently added capacity to Jersey and today’s announcement comes in response to continued demand for holidays to the sunshine in this Green List destination.
Just a short distance from the UK, Jersey offers aquamarine waters and vast stretches of white sand beaches. At just nine miles by five miles, Jersey is known as the “little island with the big spirit” and its warm and sunny climate is ideal for those looking to pursue a range of outdoor activities such as hiking, surfing, kayaking and diving. Add to that castles, forts, museums, cobbled streets and rolling hills, Jersey offers holidaymakers everything they need for the perfect getaway.
Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have already dramatically expanded their Jersey programme for Summer 21, including launching five new routes. One of those new routes, Newcastle Airport, is growing further as a result of today’s expansion which is as follows:
- Leeds Bradford – season extended until mid-October, with weekly Saturday services operating until then.
- Newcastle – brand new for Summer 21, the season has been until mid-October, with weekly Saturday services operating until then.
- Flights and holidays also available to Jersey from Birmingham, East Midlands, Manchester and London Stansted in Summer 21.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: ‘As a destination on the Green List, Jersey is continuing to enjoy a huge amount of demand from our customers and once again we are responding quickly to that demand by giving holidaymakers even more choice and flexibility. With more flights and holidays now on sale to Jersey, we know there will be a rush of bookings based on what we have already seen this summer and that is great news. With a great programme on sale to Jersey this summer, we are continuing to work with our partners in this fantastic destination to make sure we attract holidaymakers and make sure they have a memorable holiday.’
Matthew Thomas, CEO, Ports of Jersey said: ‘The continued confidence shown in Jersey as a destination by Jet2.com and Jet2holidays and its customers is great news and very much welcomed. It’s encouraging to see high demand across all its Jersey routes this summer and in particular those from Leeds and Newcastle. We welcome today’s announcement that these two services are being extended into October and look forward to welcoming more tourists to the island.’
Visit Jersey CEO Amanda Burns said: ‘Visit Jersey welcomes this very positive announcement, which demonstrates the growing appeal of Jersey and the variety of unique experiences that are available on our island throughout the year. With the summer season extended, we are very much looking forward to welcoming more Jet2.com and Jet2holidays visitors this year.’
