Teleticket, the flight consolidator, has formed a new partnership with low cost airline Jet2.com which will see the two companies working together to offer flights to the airline’s rapidly expanding list of sun, city and ski destinations.
Jet2.com has been flying commercial aircraft for over 25 years and launched its charter passenger operations in 2001, offering high quality corporate and specialist services. In February 2003, Jet2.com commenced their low cost operations and has now flown over 7 million passengers. While historically based at Bournemouth, the full operation and headquarters moved to Leeds Bradford International Airport during 2006.
From December 07, the partnership will commence, with Teleticket offering flights from Leeds Bradford International Airport to Las Palmas, Newcastle International Airport and Manchester Airport to Las Palmas, Tenerife and Arrecife, and Belfast International Airport to Tenerife and Las Palmas.
Neil Chapman, Managing Director, Teleticket said, “Through this new partnership Teleticket can further expand their portfolio by offering flights from Jet2.com to top sun, city and ski destinations in more than 10 European countries, three Mediterranean islands and expand our already successful Canary Islands route.
Teleticket has experienced massive growth because we have pursued our philosophy of providing a flexible flight only service for travellers to the existing popular European resorts and at the same time searching for new opportunities.”
Phil Ward, Passenger Sales Director, Jet2.com, said: “We are looking to utilise Teleticket’s excellent credentials within the travel trade. Teleticket has a recognised proven track record in providing a flight only service that exceeds expectations, so it will be an ideal partnership when coupled with our low cost flight network.
This tie in allows us to offer our customers even more choice and once again shows how important Jet2.com views its relationship with the trade. During 2007 we have added new routes including Cyprus, Sardinia, Jersey and Dusseldorf to name but a few; all of which are key destinations which have been driven by customer demand.”
