What’s more, there are even more flights to popular destinations including Alicante, Faro, Fuerteventura, Ibiza and Larnaca plus Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have also extended their flying programme to Crete and Rhodes so customers can really maximise the summer at the start and the end of the season.
Andy Cliffe, Managing Director at East Midlands Airport, said: “Jet2.com and Jet2holidays’ announcement of four new routes and extra capacity today is fantastic news. Over the last seven years their operation here at East Midlands Airport has gone from strength to strength and we’re delighted that they are bringing new destinations to the East Midlands region. Giron, Split and Naples are brand new routes for summer 2017 and it’s great to see that Paries has also returned with four flights a week, serving both the leisure and business markets. These routes are popular holiday hotspots and will prove to be incredibly popular with our customers.”
