DALLAS — Jet2.com (LS) has announced exciting news for travelers from Edinburgh Airport (EDI). The airline will be introducing four new holiday routes next year, along with additional summer and winter capacity. They are also planning to add an extra aircraft by summer 2024. Steve Heapy, the CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, has stated that this expansion will result in their “biggest summer ever.”
Starting in March next year, travelers from Scotland will have the opportunity to fly to Rome from Edinburgh. LS will be introducing new Monday and Friday flights to this popular destination. Additionally, they will be launching new Wednesday services to Malta in May.
Jet2 is not only increasing its summer services, but it is also responding to the demand for winter holidays. They will be operating weekly Saturday services to Chambery between February and April 2024. Furthermore, starting from October next year until March 2025, LS will be running flights to Prague twice a week.
To accommodate the growing demand, LS has added thousands of extra seats for summer 2024 to more than ten of its most popular destinations. These include the Canary Islands, mainland Spain, Turkey, Cyprus, Greece, Croatia, and Italy.
