Steve Heapy, chief executive of and Jet2holidays, said: “We know that customers and independent travel agents had been waiting keenly for us to make this move, and the reaction to the launch has reflected this.

“From day one, and over the last four weeks, the response to our award-winning flights and holidays going on sale from Bournemouth airport has been truly phenomenal, and we are delighted at how well the launch has been received.
