Jet2 celebrate first flights from Liverpool John Lennon Airport

Liverpool John Lennon Airport saw the first-ever departure by Jet2.com and Jet2holidays with celebrations to mark this milestone occasion for the airport.

With the full flight leaving for Tenerife, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays officially launched their Summer 2024 programme and began offering award-winning flights and holiday packages from Liverpool. Following this inaugural flight, holidaymakers took off for Lanzarote, one of the most popular sunny destinations for the Easter holidays.

On the first day of travel, there were celebrations at the airport where hundreds of vacationers received VIP treatment, which included a red carpet welcome and personalised gifts. At an exclusive launch event, customers were treated to entertainment by a Beatles tribute band while they waited to board the first flight. Holidaymakers also received prizes and giveaways.

With a fleet of four based aircraft flying customers to a wide choice of destinations across Mainland Spain, the Canary Islands, the Balearic Islands, Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria, Portugal, Madeira, and Cyprus, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have a total of 20 sunshine destinations on sale for Summer 24 from Liverpool.

For the operator’s first summer of operation out of Liverpool, this is a major schedule that includes up to 54 weekly flights during peak times and 565,000 seats available for purchase.

Ever since offering flights and holiday packages from Liverpool, independent travel agents and customers have shown an incredible amount of demand for both Jet2.com and Jet2holidays. Consequently, the airline and tour operator have already expanded their Summer 25 itinerary to include additional routes and aircraft.

The companies have also recently announced the launch of their first ever Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks Christmas Markets programme from Liverpool John Lennon Airport. Flights and city breaks are now on sale from the airport to Krakow and Prague for Winter 24/25, meaning the companies have a total of ten winter destinations on sale for their first winter of operations from Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

Jet2.com and Jet2holidays repeatedly win high-profile accolades. These include Which? Travel Brand of the Year and are a Which? Recommended Provider and these customer service accolades. These complement those of Liverpool John Lennon Airport, which has been voted the Which? Best UK Airport for the past two years as well as a Which? Recommended Provider too and is commended for its high levels of customer service, with travellers able to take advantage of the Airport’s faster, easier and friendlier passenger experience. 

Jet2.com and Jet2holidays’ arrival at Liverpool John Lennon Airport has resulted in significant investment for the region too, with more than 250 new jobs created across flight deck and cabin crew, engineering, and ground operations.

John Irving, CEO Liverpool John Lennon Airport, commented:

“Today is an important milestone in the airport’s history as we welcome the first of many passengers jetting off on Jet2.com and Jet2holidays’ departures from Liverpool this summer.

“Following the announcement last May that Jet2.com and Jet2holidays had chosen Liverpool to become their newest UK departure airport, a lot of work has been going on to make sure that our passengers continue to enjoy our award winning Faster Easier Friendlier airport experience and we look forward to welcoming thousands of Jet2 customers over the coming months.

“Customers and travel agents from across the region have been asking to see Jet2.com and Jet2holidays commence flights from Liverpool for some time, so it’s great to see the first passengers jet off from here today, with exciting further growth planned, following more recent commitments for their winter and summer 2025 holiday programmes. Today marks the start of what I am sure will be a great partnership.”

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said:

“We have got off to a flying start in every sense at Liverpool John Lennon Airport and are delighted to see our first flights take off today from our 11th UK airport. Since announcing the launch our award-winning flights and ATOL protected package holidays from Liverpool, our absolute focus has been on ensuring everything is ready to launch operations so we can showcase our award-winning product to customers across the region. 

“The reaction we have received from customers and independent travel agents since going on sale from Liverpool has been truly phenomenal, and we look forward to continuing to enjoy enormous success and growth at our newest airport. We have built up a strong reputation for leading the industry when it comes to looking after customers, and from today holidaymakers across the region can experience our family friendly ethos, great value package holidays and award-winning customer service.
