Leisure airline Jet2.com is to operate its first ski programme from Stansted Airport his winter.

Jet2, which began flying from Stansted earlier this year and has already announced an expanded summer programme for 2018, will operate up to 11 flights a week from Stansted to four ski destinations this winter.

The schedule includes up to five weekly flights to Geneva, two weekly services to Lyon, up the three weekly services to Salzburg and one weekly service to Grenoble.

Steve Heapy, chief executive of Jet2.com and sister company Jet2holidays, said: “We are delighted to be launching ski flights from London Stansted Airport for the first time, offering customers the chance to reach the best slopes in Europe on our award-winning airline.

“People in the area are clearly turning their attentions to the slopes, as we have seen a jump in bookings in September which bodes well for the season ahead.

“The launch of the first ever ski flights by Jet2.com from London Stansted to four exciting and popular destinations is fantastic news for winter sports enthusiasts from right across the East of England and London. I’m sure they will prove to be just as popular as the very successful summer 2017 flight programme as more and more skiers get the chance to hit the slopes from their local airport.

“With friendly flight times on a weekend, alongside 22kg of baggage and ski allowance, we’re confident of very busy and popular ski flights from London Stansted Airport this winter.”
