Jet2.com and Jet2holidays has announced that a 327-seat Airbus A330 will come into operation at Manchester Airport for the summer this week.
The new aircraft will enable the company to add more seats and capacity to support its biggest ever summer holidays and flights programme.
The widebody aircraft, leased from AirTanker for the peak summer season, will make its first flight – which is already sold out - to Lanzarote.
The aircraft will operate to the most popular hotspots from Manchester Airport during the summer, including Majorca, Tenerife, Lanzarote and Rhodes.
Featuring the company’s branding and Acro seats, which are fitted to all Jet2.com aircraft to provide more space and comfort, the A330 will enable Jet2.com and Jet2holidays customers to enjoy a spacious widebody cabin in addition to the company’s award-winning customer service and friendly flight times.
Steve Heapy, chief executive, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “Summer 2017 is shaping up to be our biggest ever from Manchester Airport so the addition of this widebody Airbus A330 will help us add more capacity to our best-selling destinations.
“As well as providing holidaymakers with more choice, the aircraft means that our formula of friendly flights, fantastic customer service and great comfort will be complemented even further with the addition of a spacious widebody cabin.”
The Airbus A330 will operate from Thursday until the end of October.
