Jet2 adds new routes with Bristol airport expansion and Jet2holidays plans to recruit more than 100 extra staff to support an expanded flying programme from Bristol airport this summer.

Jet2’s third summer of operations from the west country airport will see 32 destinations served including new routes to Chania in Crete and Malaga.

Overall capacity is being raised by 13% with more than 925,000 seats on sale with almost 100 flights a week during peak periods.

The company is looking to fill vacancies for cabin crew, pilots, ground operations, and engineering at the airport.

A seventh aircraft will be based at the Bristol with more than 400 staff set to support the increased level of operations.

Chief executive Steve Heapy said: “We are extremely excited about our third summer at Bristol airport, which will be our busiest and biggest yet. 

“Since launching flights and holidays in 2021, the response from customers and independent travel agents across the south-west and South Wales has been enormous and this has enabled us to enjoy the growth we have seen. 

“With such a huge programme on sale for summer ’23 and customers flocking to book their place in the sunshine, we are delighted to be expanding our Bristol airport team even further. 

“The success of our award-winning business is down to the hard work of our colleagues and we are looking forward to meeting like-minded passionate people to help us delight even more customers from Bristol airport.”
