Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks to launch summer route between Manchester and Iceland in 2022
British Airline Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks have announced that they will operate flights and city breaks from Manchester Airport to Iceland throughout Summer 2022. Flights will be operated on Mondays and Thursdays between April and October from Manchester Airport to Keflavík Airport.
Customers can choose between flight-only with Jet2.com or a package option with Jet2CityBreaks. This comes in direct response to British holidaymakers and also gives Icelandic nationals access to the city of Manchester and the North West of England. Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks started flying to Iceland in 2019.
“We know there is great demand from our customers for flights and city breaks to the stunning destination of Iceland,” says Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays. “We are delighted to be launching flights and city breaks to run in Summer 22 from Manchester Airport. There is a lot of pent-up demand, and we know how popular our award-winning flights and city breaks will be.”
“We at Keflavik Airport are delighted that our good friends and business partners at Jet2.com have decided to extend their winter activities into our summer season, “ says Grétar Már Garðarsson, director Airline Relations and Route Development at Keflavík Airport. “Announcing a new route from Manchester to Iceland for summer 2022 at this uncertain time gives us confidence that tourism will rise again and also shows that Jet2.com believe in the market to Iceland. Jet2.com have been a great partner to work with these past few years and we are looking forward to continuing this good relationship for many years to come.“
