For those eager to plot their next winter escape, Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks are answering the call with a strikingly expanded Winter City Breaks lineup for 24/25.
Jet2.com, the UK’s third-largest airline and dominant European city breaks operator, has ramped up its offerings for Winter 24/25, heralding its most extensive programme ever.
Jetsetters have a feast of choices, with flights and city breaks on offer from seven major airports across the UK: Birmingham, East Midlands, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, Manchester, Newcastle International, and London Stansted. The allure isn’t just the variety; the destinations are dreamy, with Athens, Barcelona, Budapest, Krakow, Paris, Prague, Rome, Vienna, and Venice on the list. The expansion wasn’t an arbitrary decision; it’s a direct response to a surge in demand both from enthusiastic customers and independent travel agencies.
Heralding year-round services, there are added routes to note. Birmingham flyers can seamlessly head to Athens, while Leeds Bradford patrons can jet off to Barcelona, and those from London Stansted can revel in the romance of Rome.
The Winter 24/25 programme doesn’t just win on the novelty; it scores big on volume. Boasting over 600,000 seats on sale, the capacity is a whopping 10% higher than Winter 23/24.
For travellers, the options are manifold. From flying solo with Jet2.com to indulging in ATOL protected package holidays via Jet2CityBreaks, the flexibility is immense. Packages even come with a generous 22kg free hold luggage, 10kg cabin baggage, and a smorgasbord of 2-5-star hotels nestled in prime city spots.
There’s an added sprinkle of festive magic on the horizon; the duo plans to unveil their Christmas Markets programme soon.
CEO Steve Heapy expressed the buoyant sentiment driving this expansion, “The prevailing demand paints a clear picture: travellers are gearing up earlier than ever for their winter getaways. Our latest programme, with its staggering choice and roomy capacity, stands as our grandest yet. We’re making the dream of sauntering through Europe’s most captivating cities an easily realizable one.”
The launch details from each airport, featuring the frequency of flights to the selected cities, underscore the company’s ambition to connect every eager traveller to their dream European winter experience.
