Steve Heapy, chief executive of and Jet2holidays said: “We are thrilled with the continued success and demand for our New York breaks direct from Newcastle International Airport, which has resulted in us growing our programme to give people the biggest choice ever.

"Doubling our number of flights means our loyal local customers have an even greater choice of direct services to the Big Apple this winter and can now really be a part of this spectacular city with an extra night’s stay.

“Whether choosing a package break or flight only option, our great value trips to New York are the perfect way to visit this iconic city without breaking the bank.

"Plus our earlier services mean visitors can enjoy a bigger bite of the apple by treating the kids for October half term. With so many options to choose from, I’d encourage people to book now so they don’t miss out on a magical holiday of a lifetime direct from their doorstep.”

Chris Sanders, aviation development director at Newcastle International Airport, said: “We are delighted that has doubled the number of their pre-Christmas New York short breaks this year.  Whether it’s shopping that takes your fancy, or the thrill of the Big Apple there’s plenty to do and see in the city that never sleeps.
