Share this:

Jet2 has launched flights and holidays from Bournemouth Airport – their 12th UK base airport.

The UK’s largest tour operator and third largest airline have put 16 sunny destinations across Europe, the Canary Islands, and the Mediterranean on sale from Bournemouth Airport for Summer 25.

Jet2 will operate up to 27 weekly flights, including multiple weekly flights to popular destinations across the Canary Islands, Balearic Islands, Turkey and Greece, Spain, Portugal and Madeira.

Two destinations (Fuerteventura and Madeira) are exclusive to Jet2 from Bournemouth Airport.

The inaugural flight will depart to Tenerife on 1st April 2025, and in Summer 25, two based aircraft will fly from Bournemouth Airport on their package holidays with Jet2holidays and leisure flights with Jet2.com.

This latest expansion comes just days before Jet2 starts operations from Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

From April 2025, customers travelling from Bournemouth Airport will be able to experience and enjoy Jet2’s VIP customer service which includes friendly flight times and a generous 22kg baggage allowance.

Customers also get that very same VIP customer service along with 2-5 star accommodation, in-resort Customer Helpers, transfers, free child places and ATOL protection.

Customers travelling from Bournemouth Airport can book their Jet2holiday direct via the website or by phoning the customer-friendly Contact Centre, or through an independent travel agent.

Jet2 says its arrival at Bournemouth Airport represents a significant investment for the region too. More than 100 new jobs will be created initially, with positions available across flight deck, cabin crew, engineering, and ground operations.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “We are absolutely delighted to be announcing that Bournemouth Airport will become our 12th UK base airport.

“As Which? Travel Brand of the Year, we know that our award-winning flights and holidays will be enormously popular across the region, and we cannot wait to show everyone what we are all about.”

Andrew Bell, CEO of RCA, Regional and City Airports, who own Bournemouth Airport, said:

“This is fantastic news for passengers and represents a huge vote of confidence in Bournemouth Airport by Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, by choosing Bournemouth as their new base airport in what is a major expansion of their operations into the south of England.

“It will create new employment locally, add 16 fabulous new destinations from Bournemouth, up to 27 extra flights a week and will see an estimated additional 300,000 passengers using their local airport.”

“Together with our work on route development; our significant recent investments in new facilities, equipment and staff to build capacity; this exciting partnership represents a step change in establishing Bournemouth Airport as a nationally significant regional hub for passenger air operations.”
