Jet2.com make French History in Albert

15th May 2008

Saturday 3rd May saw Jet2.com become the first ever UK commercial carrier to operate into the newly upgraded airport in Albert in the Somme region of France.

Flying a charter flight on behalf of the local Regional Council of the Somme, the Boeing 737-300 took invited guests to Albert for the day to showcase the airport and its facilities as well as promoting itself as an entry airport for the region.

The flight was a great success and both the passengers and crew were impressed with the facilities offered. The Regional Council of the Somme were very pleased with Jet2.com's efforts and hope that it will lead to more regular charters operating on behalf of UK tour operators promoting battlefield tours within the area.

If you want to explore France for yourself then head to Avignon, Chambery, La Rochelle, Nice and Toulouse from just £4.99 one way including taxes. See our Low Fare FINDER for your cheap flights to France.
