Jet2 ramps up Newcastle Airport offering with 50,000 Winter City Break seats
Airline and holiday company Jet2 has announced the launch of an expanded Winter City Breaks programme at Newcastle Airport.
Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks are offering almost 50,000 seats on sale to Rome, Krakow and Prague during Winter 2019/20, a year-on-year increase in capacity of almost 30%.
Up to two services per week, totalling nearly 20,000 seats, will cart holidaymakers off to the Polish capital Kraków.
The Prague route will also have close to 20,000 seats available, double the number on sale this winter, and run twice per week.
Jet2 is likewise doubling capacity on its twice-weekly service between Newcastle and Rome at the end of next year with more than 10,000 seats on sale.
Steve Heapy, chief exec of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “This is our biggest ever programme of winter city breaks from Newcastle Airport, which means that discovering and exploring the best European cities has never been as easy.
“Krakow, Rome and Prague all offer so much to see and do and we’ve made getting to them even easier thanks to extra services as well as the many benefits that you get through one simple booking with Jet2CityBreaks.”
He continued: “This expanded City Breaks collection for Winter 19/20 comes on the back of our biggest ever Winter Sun programme, and despite these exciting announcements we’re far from done with even more exciting news from Newcastle Airport to share soon.”
Newcastle International Airport COO Richard Knight commented: “We are delighted to hear that the City Breaks programme from Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks has grown by 30% for winter 19/20.
“City Breaks are a popular choice for the North East travelling public and with almost 50,000 seats on sale, it’s great news that more of our passengers will be able to experience Rome, Krakow and Prague next winter.”
