Jet2.com Secures A Spanish Winter Warmer for the North East!

14th June 2010

The British summer may be a bit hit and miss, but sun worshippers in North East can now look forward to some Spanish winter sun thanks to Jet2.com! The friendly low fares airline has stepped in with a real winter warmer for the region, with the announcement that it will extend its Newcastle to Murcia flight schedule throughout winter 2010/2011.

Flights to Murcia, which is a hot-spot for those with second homes in the region, are now on sale and start from just £29.99 per person one way including taxes. Departures will be as follows:

  • Up to 21st November 2010;
  • From 21st December 2010 to 4th January 2011; and
  • From 12th February 2011.

Whilst other airlines have cut back on flight schedules this winter, Jet2.com’s careful choice of routes and holiday options from Newcastle International Airport means it is able to offer exciting new destinations for this summer season such as Hurghada and New York, whilst still stepping in to take over where other providers are pulling out this winter.

Philip Meeson, boss of Jet2.com commented: “Spain is a fantastically popular winter sun destination, particularly for those with second homes – and with an average of 300 days of sunshine a year offers a great get-away from the chilly British winter. At Jet2.com we are committed to providing passengers with flights to places they want to visit, at competitive prices and friendly flight times and with the prospect of a shortfall in flights to Murcia from the North East this winter we decided to come to the North East’s rescue by extending this route.”
