Jet2.com and Jet2holidays adds 15,000 winter seats from Leeds Bradford Airport


5th October 2017

Jet2.com and Jet2holidays has responded to the extra demand at Leeds Bradford Airport, by adding thousands more winter seats and holidays to Tenerife, one of the region’s most popular winter sun hotspots.

The leading leisure airline and package holiday specialist is helping holidaymakers get to Tenerife by putting on extra Saturday services which start next weekend (October 14th) and run to the beginning of November. In addition to these additional weekend flights, two extra weekly flights have been scheduled to Tenerife throughout the winter, meaning a total of six weekly services and an extra 15,000 seats are now on sale.

This response to demand for flights to the winter sun hotspot means that Yorkshire’s leading airline now has over 435,000 seats on sale for its winter programme from Leeds Bradford Airport (+5% capacity increase).

As well as more frequent weekly services, the announcement means that Jet2.com and Jet2holidays will also operate larger aircraft to Tenerife.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said:

“A number of factors have resulted in increased demand for our award-winning flights and ATOL protected package holidays. As Yorkshire’s leading airline and tour operator we have added extra capacity from Leeds Bradford Airport so that holidaymakers can continue to reach their favourite winter sun destination of Tenerife from their local airport, starting from next weekend. We won’t be stopping at these winter flights, so keep an eye out for further announcements about additional Summer 18 capacity very soon.”

David Laws, CEO of Leeds Bradford Airport said:

“We look forward to welcoming thousands more Jet2.com and Jet2holidays passengers as they start their holidays to Tenerife from Leeds Bradford Airport this winter. I’m delighted Jet2.com have worked with us to respond quickly to the demand for extra capacity, this is fantastic news for holidaymakers looking for winter sun.”
