Exceeding one million British passengers with a growth of 14 percent compared to 2022 are the forecasts of Jet2holidays for this summer in the Balearic Islands

The British tour operator Jet2holidays expects to increase the number of customers by 14% and bring to the Balearic Islands close to one million tourists this season, 100,000 more than last year and 200,000 more than in 2019, the last year before the pandemic. During this high season 265 flights will arrive weekly to the Islands from a dozen UK airports.

They expect a “record” season despite a price increase of more than 10% in package holidays, according to the company. Jet2holidays is booming: it is looking for new hotels and to extend the season in Mallorca, Ibiza and Menorca. For this reason, the company rejects the policy of decreasing the number of hotels in the Balearic Islands and believes that overcrowding is not a problem for its business.

The British tour operator claims that other destinations – such as Turkey – offer very good quality and are willing to receive more tourists. This sends a message to the political authorities regarding the competition they represent.

The group’s airline, Jet2.com, which connects the Balearics with 10 British airports, is offering 1.2 million seats to the islands this year. It operates in Mallorca between February and November.
