Jet2.com, the airline with Friendly low fares, is expanding its operations from Manchester Airport for summer 2011 with the launch of the airport’s - and airline’s - first route to Brive (Dordogne).
The announcement of the new route marks Jet2.com’s 34th destination out of Manchester Airport offering over 1 million seat per year from Manchester and the airline’s 54th destination overall. Offering great access to the Dordogne valley, the route is expected to be a big hit with holiday makers, but also the many expatriates and home owners living in that area of France. Prices will start from just £39.99 one-way, including taxes.
Summer 2011 will also see the launch of two brand new sunshine routes from the airport - Larnaca and Paphos in Cyprus which will be served by both Jet2.com and Jet2holidays. In addition to this, Jet2.com will be adding extra flights to some of the North West’s most popular holiday destinations including Venice, Pisa, Nice, Palma and Murcia, offering people in the region even more flexibility when it comes to their holiday next year.
The flights to Brive will operate twice a week from May to September and will open up the stunning Dordogne region to the North West’s holidaymakers. Sarlat is the region’s most famous town old town full of charming, winding medieval streets and just a few kilometres north of the River Dordogne. The small village of Rocamadour, set on the side of a dramatic cliff, receives more than a million visitors a year as an important pilgrimage destination dating back over 1,000 years which is said to have healing powers. Lez Eyzies, in the UNESCO classified heritage site of the Vezere valley, is a perfect base from which to discover the many prehistoric caves, drawings and attractions which surround it.
Philip Meeson, boss of Jet2.com, said: “We are delighted to be able to introduce the new route of Brive (Dordogne) to Manchester Airport, along with two new routes to Cyprus and extra flights to some of our most popular holiday routes. “The North West has been one of our biggest growth areas in recent years and we have stuck to our commitment of offering flights from Jet2.com and packages through Jet2holidays to a wide range of destinations, some of which are not currently served by any other airline out of Manchester. We are also committed to going that extra mile in the service that we offer, with friendly flight times, meaning that people can get more out of their holiday, a 22kg baggage allowance, allocated seating on all of our flights and a generous loyalty scheme to thank our regular customers.” Flights to Paphos will depart twice weekly throughout the summer, commencing 6th April, with the Larnaca service departing every Saturday from 14th May. Fares start from £69.99 one way including taxes. Great value package deals with Jet2holidays start from £299 per person.
