Jet2holidays has scooped a prestigious industry award for the third year in a row, after winning the Best Tour Operator award at this year’s GRAFTAS, which celebrate the best in travel and tourism across the North East.

The award - which follows accolades in 2016 and 2017 – once again demonstrates the travel industry’s recognition of our partnership approach to working with independent travel agencies in the North East, and highlights our continued commitment to delivering a VIP customer experience.

The GRAFTA awards are based on the votes of those working in the travel industry, with over 200 agents and operators from the North East coming together for the ceremony held at the Hilton Gateshead.

We have enjoyed years of growth at Newcastle Airport, and this is set to continue with our biggest ever flights and holidays programme for Summer 2019, with almost ONE MILLION seats on sale to 32 destinations from the base including exciting new destinations - Bourgas in Bulgaria and Izmir in Turkey.

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays said: “It is an absolute honour to be awarded the Best Tour Operator accolade for the third year running and we would like to thank the organisers of the GRAFTAS, as well as independent travel agents across the North East. With their support we are able to enjoy repeat successes such as this award win, and we look forward to working in partnership with independent travel agents to enjoy more success and growth together in the future.

“The GRAFTAS are an excellent showcase of travel and tourism in the region and it was great to celebrate yet another successful year for Jet2holidays from Newcastle Airport by winning this award. It comes at a time when we are gearing up for our biggest ever flights and holidays programme from Newcastle Airport, meaning more holidaymakers than ever can enjoy our fantastic package holidays in resorts across Europe, the Canaries and the Mediterranean, all for a low £60 per person deposit.”
