Jet2 announce major expansion at Edinburgh

Jet2holidays have unveiled a major expansion at Edinburgh Airport.

The airline will be offering four new routes - to Rome, Malta, Chambery and Prague - extra summer and winter capacity, and an additional aircraft coming into operation at the airport for next summer.

For ski season, Jet2 will be flying weekly on Saturdays to Chambery - which offers access to France's Three Valleys, the Alpe d’Huez, Chamonix, La Plagne and Val d'Isère - from 10 February to 6 April next year, with the service then set to resume on 21 December 2024.

Services to Prague from Edinburgh will operate from 3 October 2024 to 27 March 2025, with up to two weekly services on Thursdays and Sundays.

For the summer, Monday and Friday services to Rome will begin on 8 March, and a new Wednesday flight to Malta will commence on 1 May.

And that's not all because the comany have added thousands of extra seats for flights next summer to their 10 most popular destinations across Turkey, Cyrpus, Greece, Croatia, Italy, mainland Spain and the Canary Islands.

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays, said: “Today’s announcement represents a significant investment at Edinburgh Airport and means we are massively expanding our Summer and Winter programmes.

"We are looking forward to our biggest ever Summer 24 from Edinburgh Airport, and this huge expansion to our programme is a demonstration of our continued commitment to investing in our operations at the base ahead of it.

"The demand we are seeing from customers and independent travel agents remains strong, so we have responded by expanding our operations at Edinburgh Airport with new routes, extra capacity and an additional 7th based aircraft for Summer 24. As a result, we are giving holidaymakers in the region even more choice to get away on our award-winning package holidays and flights whether that is in the summer or the winter.”
