Dear Sir,
I read with interest and encouragement Philip Meeson's comments featured on page one of today's Bulletin about his company, Jet 2, championing the cause of passengers in the North of England. As a Jet 2 frequent flyer since day one, I have supported the way they have opened up new routes to Palma and a host of other European tourist hotspots. The new service between Manchester and Palma - trumpeted on the back of a surge in bookings to the Balearics - is to be applauded. Through your columns, I wonder if Mr Meeson - or his company's PR representatives - can explain how his comments can possible sit with Jet 2*s disappointing and ill-judged decision to totally withdraw its service between Leeds and Palma this winter. What on Earth is going on? Rather than support the needs of pasengers from the north of England, they are robbed of flights from the end of October to the end of March.
Despite there being two school half-terms, an extended school Christmas holiday, as well as festive and New Year breaks themselves, how can this be justified by an airline which prides itself on bridging Majorca with the North of England? The Balearics should be commended for trying to boost tourism into a all-year-round destination. For Jet 2 not to support this stance is a difficult to comprehend and a kick in the teeth for all those trying to promote Majorca. My partner and I, and our four children, will certainly be travelling to Majorca during the school half–term at the end of October and during February. We may even fit in some Christmas shopping as well. In an ever-competitive marketplace, where we can get to airports at Doncaster Robin Hood; Humberside; Manchester, Liverpool and East Midlands (all are within an hour away of home) that is where we shall head. Jet 2*s loss will be EasyJet and BMI Baby's gain, not just for my family but many other ones as well.
Yours faithfully Richard Chew 1 Westfield Park Wakefield
