Jet2.com’s Glasgow to Geneva and Grenoble
Glasgow Airport was the only one of six UK bases to see more than one route start with LCC Jet2.com over the festive season, with the addition of services to Geneva and Grenoble. In case you couldn’t guess from the above cake – both are seasonal ski routes.
Jet2.com has increased its winter network offering from Manchester to 19 routes, with the addition of a weekly ski service to Sofia. The route will be operated by the LCC’s 737-800 fleet.
- Jet2.com launched seven new routes from multiple UK bases during the past two weeks. The average city pair length of the new sectors was 1,386 kilometres, with the shortest being the Leeds Bradford (LBA) to Grenoble (GNB) service at 1,067 kilometres, and the longest being the 2,227-kilometre route between Manchester (MAN) and Sofia (SOF). Only three of the seven routes will see the LCC encounter head-to-head competition, with the fiercest in terms of competing weekly frequencies being on the Manchester-Sofia sector, where easyJet offers four weekly frequencies and Thomson Airways a weekly rotation. The average weekly frequency of Jet2.com’s seven new routes is 1.1, with six flown only on a weekly basis.
