The English airline and its tour operator Jet2holidays have responded to the growing demand of their British customers by adding thousands of airline seats to the Canary Islands between October this year and March 2020.

More than 100,000 extra seats have already been put up for sale from the nine bases that the airline has in the United Kingdom (Belfast, Birmingham, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle and London-Stansted) to the 4 islands in the archipelago in which the airline operates.

For Fuerteventura it has put on sale, more than 10,000 extra seats from Birmingham, Manchester and Newcastle. While 40,000 of these seats will correspond to Lanzarote on flights from Belfast, Birmingham, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle.

For Tenerife there will be more than 50,000 extra seats from Belfast, Birmingham, East Midlands, Glasgow, Manchester, Newcastle and London-Stansted. And for Gran Canaria, more than 5,000 extra seats from Birmingham, East Midlands and Manchester.

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays, commented: “Over the past week we have seen an unprecedented increase in demand and we have reacted quickly, adding more flights and vacation packages to the Canary Islands for this winter . Our customers still want to go on vacation and we want to make it as easy as possible with our excellent service, flexibility in dates and complete vacation packages. ”

They're just taking up the slack, Sam.  Ryanair will no doubt do the same if they think they can hit their required load factor.

As far as Ryanair go, I don’t see how they could not hit their loading quota. The flights I am on never have more than a handful of empty seats

Someone has to bid for the old TC slots at LGW. Any bets who will get them?

By the way, Jet2, like everyone else in the industry, knew that TC would fail this year, and Sept/Oct is always the time when failures come.. If Jet2 and Ryanair didn't have a plan to fill the gap, then I would be very surprised. The CAA were planning for some time. ATOL renewal date?
