February 8th, 2011 by elisa

Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have suspended flights and holidays to Sharm el Sheikh and Hurghada from 1st March. The decision is due to the ongoing state of civil and political unrest in Egypt.

In a statement the airline said: “Whilst the Red Sea resorts are not currently affected, the safety and comfort of our customers is our number one priority, and as such we do not want them to face the stressful uncertainty of whether their holiday will go ahead as planned.”

Jet2.com and Jet2holidays are contacting all affected passengers booked to travel to Egypt to give a full refund on their booking plus a discount on a new booking. They said customers have said they are are relieved at the decision.

To compensate for this loss of flights Jet2 has added 4,000 extra seats each week to Spanish and Portuguese destinations.

Boss Philip Meeson said: “Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle and Glasgow will see the largest growth in capacity as the airline responds to demand in the North with more flights going on sale immediately.”

The additional flights are as follows:

Manchester

· Alicante and Majorca – double daily on Fridays and Sundays.

· Tenerife on Saturdays making three flights per week.

· Many additional seats to Ibiza and Malaga.

Leeds Bradford

· A new Thursday flight to Tenerife brings the service to four times a week.

· Two flights daily on Sundays to Murcia.

Glasgow

· Majorca flights on Wednesdays.

Newcastle

· Two new flights to Alicante operating in the mornings on Thursdays and Sundays.

· Malaga on Wednesdays bringing it to six flights per week throughout the summer months.
