Winner of numerous awards including 'Best Short Haul Airline’ and 'Most Punctual Airline" Jet2 offer reasonable prices and convenience for those based close to Manchester

Jet2Originally operating under the name Channel Express and founded by Philip Meeson, Jet2 has now refreshed its fleet with sparkling new 737 and 757’s. Currently proudly serving the north of England they are the airline of choice for those travelling to Budapest from anywhere seriously north of Watford. Winner of numerous awards including ‘Best Short Haul Airline’ and ‘Most Punctual Airline – flying into Amsterdam’. If you have time to spare and are flexible on your travel dates you can find some real bargains using their web site’s original ‘low fare finder’. Reasonably you should expect to pay around £90-£110 for a return but factor in the amount you’d normally have to spend on train tickets to London and you’re quids in. As a side note, fortunately the planned route cancellation from Manchester to Budapest has now been canned for the foreseeable future.
