The carrier will operate weekly Saturday services between late December and mid-April from Birmingham and Manchester, and from February to April from Stansted.

It is also adding weekly services to Verona from Manchester and to Grenoble from East Midlands.

The announcement brings the total number of ski destinations served by Jet2.com up to eight this winter with over 400,000 seats on sale.

The carrier will also lay on additional half term flights in February with extra services to Salzburg, Grenoble and Turin.

“With more choice and flexibility, skiers and snowboarders can hit the slopes for a weekend, a short break or for longer, whilst flying with our award-winning airline and benefitting from 22kg of baggage and ski allowance.”
