Jet2 announces 150 per cent surge in bookings following Government announcement

Jet2holidays and Jet2.com collectively have reported a 150 per cent surge in bookings following the easing of travel restrictions by the UK Government.

With pent-up demand for holiday breaks, the removal of pre-departure testing, as well as the discontinuation of PCR tests after arrival in England and Northern Ireland for fully vaccinated customers, has seen Jet2.com and Jet2holidays experience an immediate spike in bookings.

Bookings have increased by 150 per cent when compared to the previous day, and the increase in demand since the Government announcement sees bookings returning to pre-pandemic levels.

Customers have been flocking to book holidays across popular sun, ski, and leisure city destinations including Mainland Spain, the Canaries, the Balearic Islands, Turkey, and Greece.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “The relaxation of travel restrictions is welcome news for both the travel industry and holidaymakers and comes during what is traditionally a very busy period for holiday bookings.

“We have seen an immediate and dramatic spike in bookings, with volumes since the Government announcement heading towards pre-pandemic levels, which demonstrates just how much demand is out there amongst people wanting to get away for a much-needed holiday.”
