On sale today, the addition of these popular European hotspots takes the total number of destinations now available from the region to 30, giving local customers the biggest ever choice when it comes to planning their 2014 getaway.
Weekly Jet2.com flights to the Canary Island favourite, Fuerteventura, will start operating in June 2014 while flights to the pretty Portuguese island of Madeira will begin in July – both perfectly timed for when school is out next summer. Prices start from £75 per person including taxes plus great value Jet2holidays breaks are also available from £429 per person, secured for only a £60 deposit.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “The addition of these two holiday hotspots from Newcastle Airport further demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing an unrivalled selection of great value flights and holidays for our loyal customers in the region.
“With Jet2.com and Jet2holidays people can now take their pick from the four top Canary Islands for their 2014 holidays; Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Lanzarote and now Fuerteventura. While the ‘floating garden’ of Madeira is growing an increasingly popular destination for travellers. Both have plenty to offer to suit all holiday types and budgets and we are confident they will prove very successful as many already start to plan ahead and book next year’s break.”
Leon McQuaid, Aviation Development Manager at Newcastle Airport, added: “The announcement of these two new destinations is great news for the travelling public of the North East. Fuerteventura and Madeira are fantastic places and we’re delighted to offer our customers even more choice. The new routes will let holidaymakers secure some guaranteed sunshine for their 2014 summer break and are a great addition to Jet2.com’s and Jet2holidays’ range of destinations at Newcastle Airport.”
