New flights to Sharm el Sheikh will be launched by Jet2.com next summer

Cheap flights carrier Jet2.com will launch new flights to Bergerac, Sharm el Sheikh and Corfu as part of its summer 2010 schedule.

The announcement of the new routes, which commence in May next year from Leeds Bradford International Airport (LBIA), comes after the airline experienced its busiest month since its establishment six years ago.

Jet2.com chief Phillip Meeson explained that the increase in bookings was down to the UK’s poor weather in July.

"We’ve seen a huge increase in bookings this August and it looks like people don’t want to be caught out again next year," he commented.

"We’ve got some great new destinations coming on sale, which will make sure people can at least guarantee some summer sun."

The carrier said that it expects the new routes to be popular given that temperatures are currently ranging from 26 degrees C to a scorching 40 degrees C in Sharm el Sheikh.

LBIA was recently given the green light from the city’s council to proceed with its £28 million passenger terminal development.
