Flights with Jet2.com and Jet2holidays will also depart to Menorca and Majorca over the coming weeks.

The leading leisure airline and package holiday specialist reported the highest volume of bookings to the Balearic Islands in almost a year, with bookings for July alone up more than 3,000% at one point as customers took the chance to finally book and enjoy their much-needed holidays. As well as booking and travelling on award-winning flights and ATOL protected package holidays to these destinations from Belfast International Airport, customers can get to experience and enjoy the company’s VIP customer service which has seen Jet2.com and Jet2holidays win high-profile accolades before and during the pandemic, such as Which?

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “We are delighted to see our international flights take off again today from Belfast International Airport and to be resuming our award-winning flights and holidays programme to the Balearic Islands (Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza). As well as waving customers off to Ibiza this morning, we also have flights to Majorca and Menorca due to depart over the coming week, so we look forward to taking more customers in the region on their well-deserved holidays. “We know how much pent-up demand there is from our customers and independent travel agents to enjoy our award-winning flights and real package holidays once again, so it is fantastic to be back in the air. Our focus now is on doing what we do best - delivering award winning customer service and package holidays you can trust! We look forward to more destinations being added to the UK’s Green List very soon and taking more customers to their favourite sunshine hotspots.” Uel Hoey, Business Development Director, said, “It’s great news for Belfast International Airport and Northern Ireland holidaymakers that Jet2.com and Jet2holidays will imminently restart flights, initially to the Spanish islands. “Jet2.com and Jet2holidays has grown significantly to become a trusted, staple product for local consumers over the past eighteen years, and it will be a massively positive sight to see their fleet of aircraft departing from the International Airport runway once more, hopefully a foreboding of full normality returning in the weeks and months ahead.” For further information and to book visit www.jet2.com or www.jet2holidays.com
