Jet2.com and Jet2holidays Make Holiday Planning Easier with New Bournemouth Airport Base – Travel And Tour World

Jet2.com and Jet2holidays are proud to announce the expansion of their presence in the UK with the launch of award-winning flights and holidays from Bournemouth Airport, marking their 12th base airport in the country.

As of Summer 2025, travelers can choose from 16 sunny destinations across Europe, the Canary Islands, and the Mediterranean, now conveniently accessible from Bournemouth Airport. This expansion not only caters to the longstanding demand from customers and independent travel agents in the region but also significantly broadens Jet2.com and Jet2holidays’ reach.

Holidaymakers and travel agents in the South of England, including Bournemouth, Southampton, Portsmouth, and surrounding areas, can now enjoy leisure flights and ATOL protected package holidays from these renowned companies. Moreover, they will have the opportunity to experience the exceptional customer service that has earned Jet2.com and Jet2holidays the prestigious title of Which? Travel Brand of the Year for two consecutive years.

In their inaugural summer at Bournemouth Airport, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays will operate up to 27 weekly flights, including multiple routes to popular destinations like the Canary Islands, Balearic Islands, Turkey, and Greece. Additionally, exclusive offerings to destinations such as Fuerteventura and Madeira further enhance the travel experience.

The first flight from Bournemouth Airport will take off to Tenerife on April 1, 2025, with two based aircraft serving holidaymakers throughout the summer season. This expansion closely follows the successful launch at Liverpool John Lennon Airport, reflecting the consistent demand for Jet2’s services.

Starting April 2025, customers traveling from Bournemouth Airport can enjoy VIP customer service, including convenient flight schedules and a generous baggage allowance. Whether booking a flight-only option with Jet2.com or a package holiday with Jet2holidays, travelers receive top-notch service and ATOL protection.

Booking a Jet2holiday is made easy via the website, customer-friendly Contact Centre, or through independent travel agents. Moreover, the first 1,000 bookings from Bournemouth Airport will receive a complimentary fast-track service through airport security.

Jet2.com and Jet2holidays’ expansion to Bournemouth Airport not only benefits travelers but also brings significant investment to the region, creating over 100 new jobs across various sectors including flight operations, cabin crew, engineering, and ground operations.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “We know that customers and independent travel agents have been asking us for a long time to make this move, so we are absolutely delighted to be announcing today that Bournemouth Airport will become our 12th UK base airport. As Which? Travel Brand of the Year, we know that our award-winning flights and holidays will be enormously popular across the region, and we cannot wait to show everyone what we are all about.”

He added: “This latest expansion is a further demonstration of our confidence, and it reflects our long-term strategy to be the UK’s leading and best leisure travel business. We know that customers want to be properly looked after throughout their holiday experience, and we are making a significant investment in the region including the creation of over 100 new jobs to do exactly that. From today, we are counting down to the start of operations from Bournemouth Airport when we can delight customers, just as we have with millions of other customers from across the UK for so many years.”

Andrew Bell, CEO of RCA, Regional and City Airports, who own Bournemouth Airport, said: “This is fantastic news for passengers and represents a huge vote of confidence in Bournemouth Airport by Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, by choosing Bournemouth as their new base airport in what is a major expansion of their operations into the south of England. It will create new employment locally, add 16 fabulous new destinations from Bournemouth, up to 27 extra flights a week and will see an estimated additional 300,000 passengers using their local airport.”
