Jet2.com, is giving Scottish sun worshippers something to shout ‘Olé’ about by launching five brand new routes from Glasgow Airport to Spanish holiday hotspots Barcelona, Ibiza, Lanzarote, Malaga and Murcia – 2012 flights to these new destinations are on sale now.
Jet2.com’s new flights to Spain’s second largest city, Barcelona, the sunshine island of Lanzarote, Malaga – the ‘Gateway to the Costa del Sol’ – and the beautiful coastal resort of Murcia will depart from March 2012. Flights will depart as follows:
Barcelona – three times a week
Lanzarote – weekly flights
Malaga – four times a week
Murcia – twice weekly
Ibiza – twice a week.
The airline has also put on sale 2012 flights to four of the destinations that are proving popular for this summer – Alicante, Faro, Majorca and Tenerife – and is making 20 per cent more seats available to Alicante, Faro and Malaga as well as providing an additional service to Tenerife.
Ian Doubtfire continued: “There’s no doubt this is an exciting time for us at Glasgow Airport. In just two months since we started flying from our newest base we have launched five new routes and also increased capacity to some of our most popular destinations.
Francois Bourienne, Commercial Director at Glasgow Airport, said: “As expected, there has been huge demand for Jet2.com’s flights since its arrival at Glasgow Airport earlier this year and we’re delighted it has responded by launching five new routes. The airline is clearly committed to continually improving its service for customers and should be congratulated for doing so.”
Councillor Gordon Matheson, Leader of Glasgow City Council and Chair of Glasgow City Marketing Bureau, added: “Jet2.com’s plans to launch five new in-bound services from Spain at very competitive prices next year is yet more great news for tourism in Glasgow and serves as a clear vote of confidence in Glasgow Airport and in the attractiveness of the city’s fantastic cultural credentials.
“We have been working closely with both Jet2.com and the airport over the last few months on a joint communications strategy to support the airline’s other new and existing in-bound services to Glasgow, thus maximising local economic benefit opportunities. We very much look forward to continuing that relationship into the future.”
Jet2.com offers flights from Glasgow Airport to 13 city, sun and ski destinations: Alicante, Barcelona, Faro, Geneva, Ibiza, Lanzarote, Majorca, Malaga, Murcia, Nice, Paphos, Tenerife and Turkey.
