0 / 441

Just weeks after announcing its first flights and holidays from London Stansted Airport to Larnaka and Pafos, Jet2 revealed that it will be increasing capacity to Cyprus for Summer 2018.


On April 5, 2017, Jet2 launched weekly flights between London Stansted and Larnaka, with these increasing to three-weekly from May 24, and twice-weekly flights to Pafos.



From May 2, 2018 services to Larnaka from London Stansted are expected to increase to four-weekly flights and from May 29 to five-weekly.


From February 7, 2018 flights from London Stansted to Pafos are scheduled to increase to three-weekly and again to four-weekly from May 7, 2018.





On March 30, 2017, Jet2 launched biweekly flights from Birmingham to Pafos which will also mostly continue as normal through the Summer 2018 period.


However, from March 31, 2018, new weekly flights from Birmingham to Larnaka are scheduled to begin, bumping up to biweekly from May 2.




Steve Heapy, CEO at Jet2, said: “Our award-winning flights and holidays have arrived in style at both London Stansted and Birmingham Airport with people welcoming our offer of real package holidays and family-friendly flights.


“On the back of this, we are delighted to be announcing a hugely expanded Summer 18 programme, giving holidaymakers across the region access to a fantastic choice of sun and city destinations, and even exclusive routes.


“Such success in our brand-new bases shows that our formula is the right one with customers, so as well as looking forward to our first summer at both airports this year, we are already making big plans for Summer 18.”




Jet2 also revealed its flights and holidays programme from Belfast International Airport for Summer 2018, with a new and exclusive route to Pafos International Airport.


Weekly flights between Belfast and Pafos are scheduled to begin from May 2, 2018.



Describing Pafos, Jet2 write: “[Pafos is] famed for its archaeological sites relating to Aphrodite, including ruins of palaces, tombs and mosaic-tiled villas.”


Jet2 announced that flights to Pafos from Belfast were enabled due to its growth there, resulting in a new Boeing 737-800 aircraft being purchased and stationed there, “enabling us to increase capacity and reach destinations such as Cyprus.”


The aircraft, which seats 189 customers, means more Northern Ireland holidaymakers can escape to the sun directly from the airport.
