Friday 11, June 2010
Jet2.com, has launched Yorkshire's first low cost service to the beautiful island of Madeira from Leeds Bradford Airport. Flights to Madeira (Funchal) are now on sale starting from 49.99 one way including taxes, and start on 14th February 2011 running through to 31st October 2011.
The weekly Monday morning service follows hot on the heels of Jet2.com's highly successful Manchester to Madeira route which started this year.
Holidaymakers can also take advantage of holiday packages with Jet2holidays.com from £299* per person for a 7 night 3 star break starting from May 3rd 2011.
An archipelago off the coast of Portugal, Madeira offers year-round sunshine as well as beautiful natural beaches, rugged coastlines, volcanic caves and breathtaking views. Ideal for water sport enthusiasts, the island’s Atlantic location offers the perfect spot for diving, fishing, surfing, whale and dolphin spotting as well as one of Europe's first underwater nature reserves on the Garajau coast line. Holidaymakers can also take advantage of Madeira’s capital, Funchal, which provides a host of shopping opportunities as well as bustling squares and streets with an abundance of great restaurants with fantastic local cuisine.
Philip Meeson, boss at Jet2.com said “I'm thrilled to bring the island of Madeira to the people of Yorkshire - it really does have something for everyone and is only a few hours flight away. Our Manchester to Funchal route has been so incredibly popular and I'm sure that our Leeds-Bradford route will be just as a big a hit!"
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
