(PRWEB) June 28, 2011
As Jet2.com and Jet2holidays.com announce the launch of five new routes from Glasgow to Spain, the leading leisure airline’s cabin crew vote the country’s beaches as the best.
Beach holidays to Spain have been popular with Brits for as long as overseas holidays have been available. It therefore comes as little surprise that their beaches have proved the most popular with Jet2.com’s cabin crew as well as holidaymakers.
This popularity and the success of Jet2.com’s new Glasgow base has encouraged the airline and sister company Jet2holidays.com to launch new routes and holiday deals to Barcelona, Murcia, Ibiza, Malaga and Lanzarote.
Top Three Destinations All in Spain
Jet2.com recently conducted a poll amongst their cabin crew to find out where they thought the best shopping, beach and city break destinations were. Of the top five beach destinations chosen by cabin crew members when they are on holiday, three were in Spain. In fact they held the top three positions.
Majorca came top with the beaches at Pollensa, Cala D’Or and Palma receiving special mention. This was followed by Malaga with the black sand of Playa de la Malagueta proving popular and, of course, access to the many beaches of the Costa Del Sol.
In third place was Tenerife, chosen because of its beautiful volcanic sand of varying colours. The blend of mainland and island destinations goes to show the far reaching appeal of Spain’s beaches.
“An Exciting Time”
Ian Doubtfire, managing director of Jet2.com, said: “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 Jet2.com 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.”
