JET2 have added more flights and holidays from Newcastle Airport so holidaymakers jetting off from the North-East have a greater choice.

Airline and holiday provider Jet2 is expanding its capacity in the North-East by bringing more flights to Newcastle. 

Holidaymakers planning trips to popular destinations like the Canary Islands, Mainland Spain, Portugal, Greece and Turkey will now have more options. 

The increase in capacity means thousands of additional seats have gone on sale to ten destinations: Tenerife, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Malaga, Faro, Antalya, Dalaman, Corfu and Rhodes.

It comes as the airliner reported a 1,000 per cent spike in bookings immediately following the Prime Minister’s announcement of an exit roadmap from lockdown, with demand continuing since then.

Bookings have jumped in response to destinations preparing to welcome holidaymakers from the UK.

This includes bookings to Greece after the Greek Tourism Minister said that visitors are welcome if they have been vaccinated, have antibodies or have tested negative for coronavirus.

The additional flights and holidays on sale from today, March 15, are:

  • Canary Islands – additional services to Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote operating in September and October in response to demand. This comes in addition to more flying in October to Fuerteventura. As a result of this, throughout October the UK’s leading operator to the Canaries will operate daily services to Tenerife, up to six weekly services to Lanzarote and up to three weekly services to Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura.
  • Greece – additional services to Corfu and Rhodes, providing more choice from September through to late October. This means an extended season to Corfu covering the half-term, as well as up to three weekly services to Rhodes in October.
  • Turkey – additional services on sale to Antalya and Dalaman in late-September and throughout October. This means daily services to Antalya and up to nine weekly service to Dalaman throughout October.
  • Mainland Spain – additional services operating to Malaga in late-September and throughout October. This means daily services to Malaga in October, providing customers with unrivalled choice.
  • Portugal – additional services operating to Faro in late-September and throughout October. This means daily services to Faro in October.
