Jet2.com will account for half (47%) of the capacity growth between Spain and the UK this summer, according to data from the international aviation website anna.aero*.
Our additional routes (31 new routes meaning 111 routes in total this summer), more weekly flights (over 550 per week at peak times), and more seats (over 5.1 million seats on sale) makes us the third biggest operator between Spain and the UK this summer. The opening of our two brand new bases at London Stansted and Birmingham also adds to our growth in Spain.
Our three busiest Spanish airports will be Palma (Majorca), Alicante and Tenerife. The success of Jet2holidays is driving significant growth in these bases and across all of Spain, with almost 1,400 hotels now contracted directly across Mainland Spain and the islands.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “The addition of more flights and seats, as well as brand new routes this summer, really demonstrates our commitment to Spain. With great value package holidays through Jet2holidays we are driving demand amongst British holidaymakers who continue to see Spain as the preferred choice for their well-deserved holiday. As well as continuing to take existing customers to Spain, our continued focus on customer service and the launch of new bases at London Stansted and Birmingham, means we are seeing more new customers enjoying our award-winning package holiday service from their local airport to Spain too.”
