Murcia and Pula will be served from Glasgow Airport for the first time, effective 24-May-2012 and 17-Jun-2012 effectively, while the addition of Menorca from 17-Jun-2013 will take the total number of destinations operated by Jet2.com to 19 - see Route Changes Table for more information. Glasgow Airport MD Amanda McMillan said: “Since its arrival in 2010, Jet2.com has gone from strength-to-strength at Glasgow Airport and has firmly established itself as one of our most popular airlines, carrying almost 600,000 passengers to date. Its decision to expand operations with the addition of a fourth aircraft, which will result in the creation of 50 new jobs, is fantastic news and it clearly demonstrates Jet2.com’s confidence in and commitment to Glasgow Airport. We are looking forward to working closely with Jet2.com in the coming months to ensure it enjoys further success.” [more - original PR]
