Slicing up the new route cake are Sergio Millanes, Fuerteventura Airport Director; Jet2.com station manager; and Moisés Jorge Naranjo, Fuerteventura Tourist Board MD. Including Newcastle, the LCC has started new services from five UK airports this summer to the Canary Island.
- Jet2.com has started its fifth new S14 route from UK airports (joining East Midlands, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford and Manchester) to Fuerteventura (FUE) this week, with the commencing of weekly (Tuesdays) flights from Newcastle (NCL). The 3,112-kilometre seasonal sector, which began on 24 June and will operate until 21 October, will face competition from Thomas Cook Airlines, which operates twice-weekly services. On 30 June, Jet2.com also began weekly (Mondays) operations from Edinburgh (EDI) to Reus (REU). The 1,679-kilometre seasonal route will face no direct competition and will be flown until 22 September. Both services are operated by 148-seat 737-300s.
