Jet2 has announced that it will launch flights from the John Lennon Airport in Liverpool in March 2024, with the first flight from the new hub leaving for Tenerife on the 28th of that month. From summer 2024, once operations have been established, they will go to 20 destinations on 54 weekly flights.
A fleet of four aircraft will fly customers to destinations in the Canary Islands, mainland Spain, the Balearic Islands, Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria, Portugal, Madeira, and Cyprus, with 565,000 summer seats on sale.
In total there will be twelve new flights a week to the Canary Islands with five to Tenerife, three to Lanzarote, and two each to Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura, starting from March 28th.
Jet2 said in a statement: “Today's announcement means that customers travelling from Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport can experience and enjoy the VIP customer service that has seen Jet2.com and Jet2holidays continually grow its business while repeatedly winning high-profile accolades.”
“Passengers flying from Liverpool check-in quickly and pass through the terminal with ease compared to many larger airports, with average security queue times of just 12 minutes last summer and more on-time departures than most other UK airports.”
The statement also said how their arrival in Liverpool represents a significant investment for the region with more than 200 new jobs created initially, and positions available across flight deck, cabin crew, engineering, and ground operations.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be expanding our award-winning flights and holidays to Liverpool John Lennon Airport, which becomes our 11th UK airport base. This announcement further expands our footprint and comes on the back of the enormous demand that we know is out there from customers and independent travel agents across Liverpool, Merseyside, and the wider region.
