In 2003, Jet2 Limited debuted with their maiden flight between Leeds Bradford International Airport and Amsterdam. What started as twice daily service with just one rotating aircraft quickly grew. Hubs were added in Manchester in 2004 and then Newcastle a year later.
In 2005, Jet2 added two Boeing 757-200s to their roster. Their growth continued into the next year when the company acquired all the fleet, contract charter and freight flights of Channel Express. By 2013, Jet2 had grown substantially. Today they regularly fly over 4.8 million passengers a year.
