Weekender: Jet2.com launches expanded Summer 2020 programme from Leeds Bradford Airport

Jet2.com and Jet2holidays has announced an expanded Summer 2020 programme of flights from Leeds Bradford Airport.

The airline is putting flights and holidays on sale to 49 destinations across Europe, the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands from the West Yorkshire airport.

The addition of more than 50,000 extra seats means that close to two million seats are going on sale next Summer.

As a result, there will be more than 200 weekly flights departing during peak periods in this new programme.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “The UK Government has confirmed that flights to our EU holiday destinations will continue just as last year, providing assurance that, whatever the outcome of Brexit, holidaymakers can continue to book holidays with confidence.

“On the back of that we are delighted to be announcing even more good news, thanks to this exciting summer programme from Leeds Bradford Airport. With 49 fantastic destinations on sale and more seats on sale than ever, we are once again demonstrating our commitment to the base and our customers.

“With more choice and flexibility for customers and independent travel agents to choose from with our award winning airline and tour operator, we are confident that this summer programme will be a huge hit with local holidaymakers.”

Earlier this year, Jet2.com also took delivery of the last of 34 brand new Boeing 737-800 aircraft, taking its fleet size to 100.  

David Laws, CEO at Leeds Bradford Airport, added: “We are delighted to see Jet2.com and Jet2holidays continue to go from strength to strength at Leeds Bradford Airport with the release of this exciting summer 2020 programme, which will offer Yorkshire’s travelling public more seats than ever from their local airport.

“By summer 2020, our new terminal extension should be well underway and nearing completion, offering passengers a first class experience as we continue to create an airport that Yorkshire can be proud of.”
