Jet2 extends summer season in Ibiza and Menorca

Off the back of “strong demand” for holidays outside the typical peak summer period, the tour operator has added more than 80 flights across both destinations.

New flights to Ibiza between late September and the end of October will be added at Birmingham, East Midlands, Glasgow, Manchester and Newcastle airports.

Jet2’s summer season will start earlier in Ibiza next year too with the introduction of twice-weekly April flights from Birmingham, Leeds Bradford, Manchester and Stansted, opening up the island in time for Easter.

In Menorca, Jet2 will add flights from five UK bases between September and November - Birmingham, East Midlands, Leeds Bradford, Manchester and Stansted.

Steve Heapy, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays chief executive, said: “This news is a real boost for the tourism industry and economy in Menorca and Ibiza, living proof we are not just working to fill hotels in the peak summer season but that we are working with our hotel and industry partners to achieve the best possible results in shoulder seasons too.”

The news has been welcomed by the two island destinations’ respective tourist boards.

Vicente Torres, president of Ibiza Island Council, said: “We are very pleased with these increases in capacity. We believe Ibiza has a great offer in spring, autumn and winter, and these periods are popular with tourists who want to know about the cultural, gastronomic and sports offers of the island.”

Maite Salord, councillor of tourist promotion in Menorca, added the Jet2 expansion underlined its confidence in, and commitment to, the island.

“Our aim is to extend the tourist season, and we hope to continue working closely with Jet2.com and Jet2holidays in order to strengthen the link between Menorca and the United Kingdom,” she added.
