Jet2.com and Jet2holidays has added more than 14,000 return seats to the Canary Islands next year, in response to increased demand for Winter Sun and holidays during the Easter period from Belfast International Airport and Edinburgh Airport.

Responding to extra demand, we have put on additional flights to Lanzarote and Tenerife and given holidaymakers even more choice and flexibility.

The announcement represents 37 additional return services in total, and further expands our programme from Belfast International Airport and Edinburgh Airport.

The expansion includes:

Belfast International Airport

Additional weekly Tuesday services to Lanzarote from February 11th through to 21st April, perfectly timed for both the February school holidays and Easter. It means we will operate up to three weekly services to Lanzarote during this period.

A further Monday service to Tenerife from 13th January to 20th April, providing even more choice, meaning up to four weekly flights to this popular Canary Islands hotspot from early in the year.

Edinburgh Airport

Additional weekly Monday services to Lanzarote from February 10th through to 20th April, perfectly timed for both the February school holidays and Easter. It means we will now operate up to four weekly services to Lanzarote during this period.

The Canary Islands continue to be a year-round favourite with local holidaymakers, and today’s announcement is the latest demonstration of our commitment to the islands. We are the largest UK tour operator to the Canaries, offering great value package holidays and hundreds of 2-5 star hotels from across our nine UK bases.  

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “As the UK’s largest tour operator to the Canary Islands, we are delighted to have responded quickly to extra demand for flights and holidays to Lanzarote and Tenerife. The Canary Islands continue to be a firm favourite with holidaymakers from our nine UK bases and we are totally committed to our Canaries programme, as seen through our continued growth. By adding more of our award-winning flights and ATOL protected package holidays from Belfast International Airport and Edinburgh Airport, holidaymakers now have even more choice and flexibility when it comes to Winter Sun and holidays outside of the main summer season, including during the February school holidays and Easter.”
