Jet2 Celebrate New Route From Glasgow

Glasgow based holidaymakers will now be able to take advantage of new flight services to Lanzarote with leisure airline Jet2. With weekly flights to the island available from March 2012 and with prices starting from as little as £49.99 one way. An announcement that was inaugurated yesterday in Scotland with the creation of the world's first haggis paella.

Jet yesterday announced the launch of five new routes from Glasgow airport to leasing Spanish hot spots, including Barcelona, Ibiza, Malaga, Murcia and Lanzarote. And to mark the launch the airline yesterday teamed up with Glasgow based restaurant Barca, to create the world's first haggis paella.

Ian Doubtfire, managing director of, commented: "What better way to celebrate the launch of five new Spanish sunshine routes than creating our own unique version of the famous paella" fusing two iconic national dishes to give people a flavour of the great destinations now available from their local airport.

"There's no doubt this is an exciting time for us at Glasgow Airport. In just two months since we started flying from our newest base we have launched five new routes and also increased capacity to some of our most popular destinations. This demonstrates how committed we are to growing the range of great value destinations we offer to customers across Glasgow and the west of Scotland."

"We are really pleased with bookings so far with 150,000 seats already sold, covering both and Jet2holidays passengers. The feedback from passengers on our generous 22kg baggage allowance, allocated seating and friendly flight times is very positive, so we are now enabling people to plan ahead and book their summer breaks for 2012."

The new Jet2 flights to Lanzarote will operate weekly from March 2012 but can be booked online now. With headline prices starting at £49.99 one way.
