UK airline Jet2 is extending its suspension of all flights up to and including 25 March because of the “ongoing uncertainty and travel restrictions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic”.

However, the leisure carrier notes “a lot of demand” from customers and says it plans to offer “fantastic deals” for flights from this summer onwards.

Cirium data indicates that Jet2 has not been operating flights since the start of 2021. In the early days of 2020, its seven-day average had been at 100-160 flights per day.

In the last month of 2020 the carrier operated around 10-15% the number of flights in December 2019.

Jet2 had in November been hopeful that its winter 2020-21 seat capacity would be only 50% below the previous year’s.
