BRUM DEAL Jet2 Spreads Wings From Birmingham Airport

Leisure and package holiday carriers Jet2 have just announced their plans to start offering services to Lanzarote and fourteen other destinations from Birmingham Airport.

Jet2 already offer Lanzarote flights and holiday deals from Belfast, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester and Newcastle and their new Birmingham to Lanzarote service kicks in from April 1st 2017, with one way fares starting at 75 pounds.

The announcement pits the airline against Monarch, Ryanair, Thomas Cook Airlines, and Thomson Airways on the Birmingham to Lanzarote route. And should also go some way toward allaying the post Brexit anxieties of local business associations, such as hoteliers ASOLAN. Who, fearing a fall in visitor numbers from the UK, are lobbying local government to diversify into further flung markets such as Eastern Europe by expanding the runway at Arrecife airport.
