Jet2 announce increase in flights to Spain whilst Egypt flights suspended

Tue 8th Feb 2011

Jet2 has confirmed that it has suspended it's fights to Egypt for the time being, but has countered the move by increasing number of flights bound for destinations in Spain and Portugal.

The airline announced it had added in excess of 70,000 seats - originally destined for Egypt - to Alicante, Ibiza, Malaga, Faro and Tenerife. The flights are for the coming summer months.

Jet2 chief executive Philip Meeson said: "We have always seen strong demand for Spain and Portugal."

On Monday the company announced it was suspending all flight to Sharm-el-Sheikh and Hurghada in Egypt as from March 1 due to continued politcal unrest. It does plan to continue to service the Red Sea resorts.

The majority of these extra flights into Spain will be from Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle and Glasgow, with seats on sale with immediate effect. From Manchester there will be extra flights to Alicante and Majorca, increasing the flights on these routes to twice per day on Fridays and Saturdays. There will also be an extra Saturday flight to Tenerife on a Saturday, and more seats available for occupancy to Ibiza and Malaga.

From Leeds Bradford, there is a new Thursday flight to Tenerife and an additional Sunday morning flight to Murcia.

Newcastle airport will benefit from two new flights to Alicante on Thursdays and Sundays, a new Malaga flight on a Wednesday and more seats available to Faro. An additional flight to Majorca will operate out of Glasgow on a Wednesday.

This is in addition to news last week that the airline plans to increase the number of routes serving Spain.
