History of Jet2

Jet2 is a subsidiary of an aviation group called Dart Group PLC. The airline began commercial operations in 1978 initially only as freight. In 2002 the airline began passenger services to international cities but operated mainly short and medium-haul flights. It was in 2006 that the airline was renamed Jet2 and when it changed its home base from Bournemouth to where it is now located in Leeds. Jet2 opened more bases at other UK airports due to growing passenger numbers and increased its fleet in 2005 with some larger Boeings.

The airline carried 600,000 passengers in 2003 alone and their numbers have increased ever since. The Dart Group launched Jet2holidays, offering traveller’s holiday packages with Jet2 flights, launching cheap flights to New York as part of the same project. Today Jet2 carries around 4 million passengers per year on its scheduled and charter flight network. Jet2 also carries Royal Mail on overnight contracts.
