A little Jet2 History
Jet2.com has an illustrious history that spans over 30 years, with their roots lying in the commercial aircraft company Channel Express (Air Services).
Things really took off for them, they carried 360,000 happy passengers in that first year. By September 2004, Jet2.com had carried 1 million passengers and surpassed 20 million passengers in October 2010.
In 2016, they welcomed over 6.6 million customers. And everything’s still looking up for Jet2.com now, which is amazing we think!
Jet2.com Limited, often known simply as Jet2, is a British low-cost airline based at Leeds Bradford Airport, England. Jet2.com is the fourth largest scheduled airline in the UK that provides flights, all inclusive holidays, short breaks and some great discounts to millions every people every year.

The impressive airline first geared up there engines on February 12, 2003, and sent its first aircraft, a Boeing 737, from Leeds Bradford to Amsterdam. It initially flew to the Dutch city twice daily.
For two years running in 2017 and 2018, Jet2 won the Best Airline, and the Best Low-Cost fly to over 50 sun, city and ski destinations, what more could you ask for!
Also, if you didn’t already know Jet2 has just celebrated its 15th birthday in February 2018. It has been named Britains best airline at the TripAdvisor Travellers Choice Award recently in April, it has also been handed Which? Magazine`s “Travel Brand of the Year” award, impressive right?
Let’s look at what makes this airline so unique. Let me start with what makes their flights so fantastic for everyone.
Their convenient flight times mean you’ll be ready to enjoy your destination from the first day you arrive with your added 22kg baggage allowance! You’ll have plenty of space left for extra outfits, souvenirs and more with that kind of allowance.
Some charges do apply for allocated seating, but once you’re at the airport, you won’t have to queue up and rush onboard to get the best ones, they offer allocated seats as standard on all our flights, another bonus.
They will fly you direct to a diverse range of destinations across Europe and beyond. The variety from their nine UK bases gives you a fantastic choice for your next flight.
With zero credit card fees which are unlike other airlines, they won’t charge you a fee for paying by credit card, debit card or PayPal, this really does make life that little bit better for us all.

The food is pretty much the same as all other flights, maybe slightly different menus, but still, airline food is more or less the same, unless your travelling on Emirates first class!
