Jet2.com Inn-troduces New Summer Destination – Innsbruck!
31st October 2019: Leading leisure airline Jet2.com has announced summer flights to Innsbruck for the first time, with services on sale from Birmingham Airport for Summer 20.
The UK’s Best Airline* will operate flights to the Tyrolean capital between June and September for the first time, giving holidaymakers access to a range of adventures in the stunning Alps as well as the delights of charming Innsbruck itself. Today’s announcement comes on the back of the company’s first ever programme of ski services to Innsbruck, which start in December this year.
The UK’s third largest airline has put 10,000 seats on sale from Birmingham Airport for its first programme of summer services to Innsbruck. This includes weekly Wednesday services which run from 3rd June through to 16th September. Flights are perfectly timed for holidaymakers, with morning departures helping customers to make the most of their stay.
Innsbruck is the fifth largest city in Austria and is surrounded by stunning high mountains and dazzling lakes, making it attractive to the increasing number of holidaymakers who are enticed by wellness, adventure and sport. With miles of mountain ranges and alpine meadows on the doorstep, adventurers, hikers and cyclists are spoiled for choice, and that’s not mentioning the unique mountain trams that offer up some of the most staggering views around.
Medieval Innsbruck itself offers a fantastic city break option, small enough to get around on foot, whilst fusing modern cosmopolitan with tradition and charm. Home to museums such as Audioversum and the Grassmayr Bell Foundry, cafes serving traditional fare such as schnitzel and strudel, and criss-crossed by charming cobbled streets lined with bars and restaurants, it’s not hard to see why Innsbruck is becoming so popular with British holidaymakers.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “Innsbruck is the perfect fit for the growing number of people who are looking for adventure, scenery, and wellness on their holidays. Located in the heart of the Austrian Alps, local holidaymakers can choose from a whole host of activities from mountain biking and paragliding through to hiking, whilst being able to enjoy the unique blend of modern and old in Innsbruck itself. With perfectly timed flights and our award-winning service, we are expecting this programme to be hugely popular with holidaymakers from Birmingham Airport.”
Tom Screen, Aviation Director at Birmingham Airport, said, “It’s great that Jet2.com will be offering flights to Innsbruck throughout the summer months as well as winter, recognising the many wonderful things that customers can experience in this city in the Alps all year round. Once again, we applaud Jet2.com for growing the choice available for Midlands travellers.”
