Jet2 Group Continues To Soar Higher…
In the last few months, Jet2 has been making significant growth plans that don’t just affect the Summer 2023 season but beyond.
Back in November, the airline announced its dedicated City Breaks program for Summer 24, with ten destinations on sale from six UK bases.
The program includes a brand-new route from London Stansted to Nice, as well as increased flexibility to other top destinations in Europe.
This comes just weeks after the announcement of the companies’ biggest ever Summer Sun program for 2024, which includes flights and holidays to a number of other popular city break destinations.
The latest announcement puts the dedicated City Breaks program on sale for Summer 24 from Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, Manchester, Newcastle International, and London Stansted Airports.
The latest offering spans a variety of world-famous capitals, cultural centers, and historical gems in Greece (Athens), Mainland Spain (Barcelona), Hungary (Budapest), Poland (Krakow), Czech Republic (Prague), France (Nice and Paris), and Italy (Pisa, Rome, and Venice).
2022 Highlights from Jet2…
Jet2 has been working hard to expand on the successes it experienced over the course of 2022.
Back in August, the airline celebrated its 100 millionth passenger ever handled in the history of its existence.
Before COVID-19 hit the travel sector, the airline was on a continued upward trajectory, from handling 1.2 million passengers in 2004 to 14.4 million per year by 2019.
With the Summer 2023 season expected to be even busier than the chaos of Summer 2022, Jet2 does have a good chance of exceeding expectations.
Either way, it’s all to play for, as consumers continue to book holidays despite an ongoing cost of living crisis in the UK.
It remains clear that Jet2 has a lot to celebrate, despite the hard times caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The unique position that Jet2 is in will offer nothing but an upwards trajectory as we slowly progress through this decade.
With the world moving away from the global pandemic, airlines like Jet2 can only stand to benefit from pent-up demand. And that is so important for long-term success.
For now, all eyes are on Jet2 to see how the Summer 2023 season is going to go for them and whether they can expand on successes made in the Summer 2022 season.
