Jet2.com, is launching a new route to Krakow, in Poland, when simultaneous services from both Leeds Bradford and Newcastle get under way this October.
The airline will be the only carrier in Yorkshire and the North East to offer a service to this dazzling new destination, with inaugural flights taking off from Newcastle International and Leeds Bradford and on the 30th and 31st October respectively.
A special introduction fare of an incredible £14.99 each way will be available for every seat on the first two flights from Leeds Bradford and Newcastle, this fantastic offer is expected to sell very fast and will end on Monday 14th August. The standard fare will start at a highly competitive £19.99 - all fares are one way, inclusive of taxes.
A total of four flights a week will link the North of England with this superb short break destination, giving residents unparalleled opportunity to explore what is Eastern Europe’s hottest emerging city known for its art and architecture, from baroque to Art Nouveau, renaissance to Gothic.
Jet2.com boss, Philip Meeson, said: “I am absolutely thrilled to launch our services to Krakow from not one but two of our UK bases. This is our first route into Poland and our introductory fare of £14.99 is so low you’d be krakers to miss out on it.
“Krakow is undeniably a fantastic destination, with historic city fortifications surrounding a centre that has deservedly been on UNESCO’s World Heritage list for over 25 years.
“What’s more, the city can hold its own against Prague when it comes to some of Eastern Europe’s finest art, architecture and beer. The latter is even cheaper than Prague’s, at just about £1 a pint, guaranteeing a visit to this gem of a city will be a trip to remember.
“Hip bars and sophisticated restaurants aside, Krakow has everything you could possibly need to have a fabulous short break and with Jet2.com flights starting from just £19.99, there has never been a better time to explore Eastern Europe’s rising star.
“What’s more, with our low cost fares and excellent service, Polish residents in the North of the UK can now easily and affordably visit family and friends back in Poland and we’re proud to be making it easier for families to get together again.”
Krakow is awash with spectacular monuments, including Europe’s largest medieval town square, Glowny Square, the imposing Wawel castle that dominates the city, magnificent churches and a sublime cathedral to boot.
