Following another successful year, Jersey-based FlyDirect has launched an expanded programme of direct flights and holidays to Tenerife, giving Channel Islanders the chance to reach the Canaries for some much needed winter sun only four hours after departing from Jersey.
Flights will again be operated by Spanish airline Volotea on a 125-seat Boeing 717 jet, departing every Sunday between 31st January and 10th April. 2016 will be the third year that FlyDirect works with Volotea, and the airline has become a firm favourite with regular clients.
The first sell-out flight of the season departed on Sunday 31st January, with 125 happy holidaymakers staying in the popular south coast resorts of Costa Adeje, Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas.
“We are delighted to launch an expanded 2016 FlyDirect programme to Tenerife. The option to fly direct to the Canary Islands and enjoy some winter sun has been extremely popular with Channel Islanders, as they seek to avoid the lengthy journey and stress of travelling via the UK”, said Robert Mackenzie, Managing Director of C.I. Travel Group.
Passengers are encouraged to begin their holiday at Jersey Airport, posing for photos with the FlyDirect holiday board, on display in the departures hall throughout the next few weeks. The board has been created in partnership with the States of Jersey Prison Service’s education programme.
Lydia Smith, General Manager, Channel Islands Outbound at C.I. Travel Group, commented: “We have been delighted to work with the team at the States of Jersey Prison Service to design and create this tailor-made board, which we hope will get everyone in the holiday mood while they are in Jersey Airport. Our first flight to Tenerife departed full on Sunday 31st January and we’re looking forward to another great year whisking our clients away on their direct sun holidays. Thanks to everyone who is travelling with us this year and, for those who can’t; they can still picture themselves having fun in the sun. We can’t wait to see the photos on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.”
