We are announcing more dedicated trips to Iceland from Leeds Bradford and Newcastle Airports, just weeks after putting our Iceland programme on sale. This exciting announcement means we are increasing our Iceland programme by 50% from the two bases.

Just weeks after going on sale with dedicated Iceland trips, and in response to demand from local holidaymakers, we have added another four-night trip, departing on Thursday 14th March 2019, from Newcastle Airport – and a three-night trip departing on Monday 18th March 2019 from Leeds Bradford. It means customers now have a wider choice of dedicated Iceland trips from Leeds Bradford and Newcastle – with three trips on sale from both bases.

The expansion means we are offering a total of 12 once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to experience this fantastic destination and the spectacular Northern Lights from five UK bases (Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, Manchester and Newcastle) across February and March.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “These additional trips to Iceland and the Northern Lights come in direct response to the demand we’ve seen from customers since launching just a few weeks ago.”

“We are thrilled with this response, and we are now offering customers even more choice when it comes to visiting this wonderful country. Iceland is home to many natural and unique wonders, from the Northern Lights to natural parks and geothermal spas, and we can’t wait to welcome customers on these trips-of-a-lifetime with us next year.”  

All flights to Keflavík International Airport near Reykjavik will be operated by award-winning Jet2.com on Boeing 737-800 aircraft, and the full programme is as follows:

Newcastle: 4-night weekend trip on 14-18 February, 3-night midweek break on 18-21 February or 4-night weekend trip on 14-18 March
