Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “This will be our biggest summer programme yet from Edinburgh Airport, with more seats and hotels than ever through our award-winning airline and holiday operator. Such sustained growth is only possible by looking after our customers, which shows that our continued investment into offering great value package holidays and family friendly flights is working. By continuing to grow across all of our bases, including established ones such as Edinburgh, this proves our formula is the right one.”

Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport Gordon Dewar said:  “This ongoing and consistent growth from Jet2.com reflects Edinburgh Airport’s direction of travel by offering greater passenger choice for the holiday market direct from Scotland to the Mediterranean sunshine.”
