Jet2.com primes party island routes

Low cost airline Jet2.com has launched a pair of new Mediterranean services from north-eastern hub Newcastle Airport.

Low cost airline Jet2.com has launched a pair of new Mediterranean services from north-eastern hub Newcastle Airport.

The carrier – based at Leeds Bradford International Airport and with a strong north of England presence – has put its faith in the pull of the Greek islands for sun-starved Tynesiders, with Corfu and Rhodes made available to local travellers.

Starting from June, Corfu flights will be going to and from Newcastle Airport on a Monday, while Rhodes services will now jet back and forth every Wednesday.

Jet2.com’s Philip Meeson said: "The announcement of our new services to Corfu and Rhodes is fantastic news for the north-east. Both destinations have lacked direct, scheduled and, importantly, low cost services from Newcastle and we’re delighted to be launching them today."

Ibiza is another new island destination offered by Jet2.com, with the carrier launching a summer route from north-western airport Blackpool and already claiming rapid pre-sales for the sunshine and party route.

The European Low Fares Airline Association (ELFAA) has recently announced that Jet2.com will become its 12th member, entering into cooperation with the likes of Ryanair and easyJet.
