French Air Traffic Control Strike Didn’t Stop From Flying!

Posted in Announcements

April 10, 2015 at 10:35 flew in the face of the French air traffic control strike to ensure its customers’ well earned Easter holidays weren’t ruined. Despite other airlines cancelling hundreds of flights the leading leisure airline pulled out all the stops to ensure its 121 flights still operated to more than 50 destinations, even coming to the rescue of passengers on other airlines!

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays, said: “We weren’t about to let down our 20,000 customers who had planned to travel with us over the past couple of days.  We know how important holidays are to people so something like a strike isn’t going to stop us from taking off!”

Stranded Easyjet customer Sandra O’Donnell said: “On 8th April Easyjet cancelled our flight and we were told that they weren't prepared to rebook us. Stunned and left high and dry we stumbled across the desk at Glasgow Airport. Craig and his colleague Nicola were on the desk and I explained our situation and for the next couple of hours they helped us to find alternative flights. They still found time for us even although they were serving other customers. I have to say I will never book with Easyjet again and go to instead.”

Jennifer Cross added: “I was booked to fly with Easyjet yesterday and my flight was cancelled. The ladies at the desk at Newcastle Airport booked us a new flight and assisted us during a very stressful time. The service I received from all of the staff was fantastic and I will always use in the future.”
