London Stansted Airport received a boost this month with the announcement that Jet2.com is launching four exclusive flights to New York this winter.

The four-night shopping breaks to the Big Apple during November and December 2017 have been scheduled to coincide with Black Friday, Thanksgiving and the build up to Christmas.

Jet2.com opened a new base at Stansted in March offering flights and holidays to 27 European destinations. They will be the first airline to serve New York from London Stansted for nine years.

Andrew Cowan, Stansted Airport’s CEO said: “The announcement by Jet2.com and Jet2holidays is fantastic news for London Stansted and everybody in the region looking for a New York shopping trip just before Christmas from their local airport.

"The airline has had a fantastic start since launching here in March and this boost clearly demonstrates the strength of demand that exists across the East of England and London.

"The airport has not served the Big Apple since 2008 so we are all absolutely thrilled to have it back on our destination boards. I’m sure these great value flights will prove to be another huge hit with passengers.”

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks said: “We are delighted to be launching our popular New York trips from London Stansted Airport this year, making us the only airline and tour operator to fly directly to the Big Apple from the airport.

"With our flights and holidays programme performing exceptionally well from our new base, we expect the same level of popularity for these trips."

Flights will be operated by a 327-seat Airbus A330 and land at New York's Newark Liberty International Airport.
