Jet2 adds 7,000 October seats to Canaries and Turkey

More than 7,000 extra seats to the Canary Islands and Turkey have been added by Jet2 and Jet2holidays for last-minute October breaks.

Additional flights have been scheduled to Tenerife, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria and Dalaman.

Additional departures are from Belfast International, Birmingham, East Midlands, Leeds-Bradford, Stansted, Manchester and Newcastle airports.

The rise in capacity means the company will be offering more than 190 weekly flights to the Canaries from 10 UK airports this month to coincide with school half-term holidays.

Chief executive Steve Heapy said: “The easing of travel restrictions has given people the confidence to plan and look forward to their holidays and this has resulted in phenomenal demand for October breaks.

“As always, we have been quick to respond to demand by adding additional flights to the Canary Islands and Turkey, offering customers and independent travel agents even more opportunity to enjoy some sunshine.”
