Jet2 ramps up autumn capacity to Madeira and Malta

Jet2 and Jet2holidays is ramping up autumn capacity to Madeira and Malta in response to “very strong” demand from consumers and independent agents.

More flights to Madeira have been added in September and October from Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds- Bradford airports

They are in addition to an existing programme of weekly services from Bristol, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle, as well as twice-weekly services fromStansted.

The revised programme gives 14 weekly flights to Madeira during the autumn.

Malta is gaining extra September flights from Manchester and Stansted in addition to links from Glasgow, Birmingham, Newcastle and Leeds-Bradford.

Chief executive Steve Heapy said: “Madeira and Malta are seeing very strong demand, thanks to a combination of their green list status and the fact they are fantastic destinations for holidaymakers to enjoy.

“It is clear that autumn breaks are in demand this year, so we have responded to that trend by giving customers and independent travel agents even more choice in September and October.”

Nuno Vale, executive director of Madeira Promotion Bureau, added: “We are delighted to see how the British market is responding to Madeira.

The increase in capacity is an answer to the strong demand and makes us very excited for the near future.

“We are proud of what we have accomplished so far, keeping the destination safe and providing people with a true holiday experience.

Malta Tourism Authority chief executive Johann Buttigieg said: “This decision continues to consolidate Malta’s positive relationship with and Jet2holidays, who are a key airline and tour operator when it comes to tourism growth and development within Malta’s largest tourism market, the UK.”
