Jet2 CEO Steve Heapy commented on the positive results reported by the carrier, which resulted in the purchase of 12 more Airbus aircraft.

“We are pleased to have delivered another strong financial performance during the first half of the financial year, despite the well-publicised external challenges faced.”

“This clearly demonstrates that our end-to-end package holiday is a popular and resilient product and is the Right Product for Price Conscious Customers.”

“Our Customer First ethos runs deep throughout our company culture with ‘People, Service, Profits’ our
guiding principles and our commitment to an innovative, value for money product and exceptional customer service is unwavering.”

“We are truly grateful to have such exceptional Colleagues who are not only some of the best in their profession but are also highly motivated and incredibly proud to provide this level of service.”

“As a result, we remain confident that as a customer focused and much trusted holiday provider, our
Customers will continue to travel with us to the sun spots of the Mediterranean, the Canary Islands and to
European Leisure Cities and that we can continue to deliver on our long-term strategy to be the UK’s Leading and Best Leisure Travel business.”

The group operating profit for the half year ending September 30 increased by 19% to £617m, compared to £516.6m recorded in the same period last year.

Revenues increased to around £4.4bn from £3.5bn, reflecting a 24% rise also.

All eyes will be on Jet2 to see if they choose to exercise anymore Airbus orders going into the future.
