Our success lies in giving our customers great choice, great value, and ultimately a great service.
The Group particularly dedicates significant resources to deliver Real Package Holidays and we believe we have the strategy to grow our flight-only and package holiday businesses, with the products, the people and the proposition to go from strength to strength. With our Customer focused approach, we are confident that our customers will continue to be keen to travel with us from our Rainy Island to the sun spots of the Mediterranean, the Canary Islands and to European Leisure Cities.
The core principles of the business are to be family friendly, offer value for money and give great service, so each of its customers “has a lovely holiday”. Every day, it is apparent that the family-friendly formula delivers success. Jet2.com scooped Best Airline – UK and Best Low-Cost Airline – Europe at the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards, and it has been named Which? Travel Brand of the Year 2018.
The same level of commitment and enthusiasm is applied to colleagues within the business. It’s very important that the business leads the way for both safety and service. In 2014, the £9.5 million purpose built training centre was opened. This fantastic facility now houses five full flight Simulators – the B757-200, B737-300 and three B737-800s. The simulators provide unrivalled quality training for pilots, while the Cabin Safety and Emergency Procedure Centre offers the perfect learning environment for Cabin Crew too. More recently, we have added Engineering Training facilities to the Centre, for high quality and relevant training for engineering colleagues.
