A budget airline has announced a major expansion of its operations at Edinburgh Airport, including four new routes.
Jet2, the UK’s largest tour operator and third largest airline, has added a seventh aircraft based in the Capital for summer 2024.
Jet2 also said it is seeing strong demand for flights to popular snow sports destinations, and in response to this, new flights have been added to Chambery, in the French Alps, from Edinburgh for winter 23/24 and 24/25. Saturday services will operate weekly between February 10 and April 6, 2024, and then again from December 21, 2024.
New services to Prague will also begin operating from October 3, 2024 to March 27, 2025 with up to two weekly services operating during this period.
For sunseekers, Jet2 have also added thousands of extra seats for next summer to some of their most popular destinations – including the Canary Islands, mainland Spain, Italy, Turkey, Croatia, Cyprus and Greece.
The destinations where additional flights and holidays have been added include Larnaca, Gran Canaria, Naples, Split, Tenerife, Verona, Lanzarote, Malaga, Antalya, Bodrum and Zante.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “Today’s announcement represents a significant investment at Edinburgh Airport and means we are massively expanding our summer and winter programmes.
“We are looking forward to our biggest ever summer 24 from Edinburgh Airport, and this huge expansion to our programme is a demonstration of our continued commitment to investing in our operations at the base ahead of it.
“The demand we are seeing from customers and independent travel agents remains strong, so we have responded by expanding our operations at Edinburgh Airport with new routes, extra capacity and an additional seventh based aircraft for summer 24.
“As a result, we are giving holidaymakers in the region even more choice to get away on our award-winning package holidays and flights whether that is in the summer or the winter.”
