Maybe not those 'on order' but the A330s could do it.

Jet2 Egypt

Anyone know why jet2 haven't started routes towards Egypt? They pretty much cover most Greece and Spain, so why don't they tamper with Egypt ect. Or could the 321's open those doors for them ?

Egypt seems to be less politically stable than Greece... it's caused an awful lot of problems for the like of Monarch and Thomas Cook. Perhaps one to be wary of, at least while demand for more reliable bets like Greece and Spain remains lower than 2019 ?

I don't think they have ventured into Tunisia or Morocco either...both popular holiday destinations from the UK....both served by TUI.

N Africa

Jet2 used to go to Egypt and Tunisia, but in recent years political instability and terrorist attacks made them too dangerous. They are not prepared to put their customers in harms way.

Oh please. You’re just as likely to be in a terrorist attack in Manchester or Liverpool than Egypt and Tunisia.

The FCO doesn’t advise against travel to these destinations, so they’re deemed as safe as anywhere else.

Due to high profile attacks both have suffered a fall in demand. Egypt was also on the red list at one point which probably hasn’t helped also.

Yes, stupid answer! Jet2 is smaller in the big picture. Why don't they do Cape Verdi, Croatia, Morocco.
With TUI you have a choice of 5 airports to Italy whereas I think Jet2 offer Rome only. Perhaps that is because other parts of Italy are unsafe!

With a fleet of close to 90 aircraft and a substantial order book, I'd say nothing small about Jet2!!

Or a fleet of A321neos, which they have recently placed an order for.

They fly to Croatia. And plenty of airports in Italy. They are the third largest UK scheduled airline.

In the past they have flown to Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt among other destinations. I assume these didn’t perform as well as others hence they were dropped and replaced.

Does anyone fly to Rimini?.... used to be a very popular area for UK tourists....with loads of IT flights from UK provincial airports......seems to have fallen out of favour.

Egypt: Sharm el Shiekh https://www.jet2.com/News/Low_cost_flights_to_Sharm_El_Sheikh_on_sale_now!!/

Article on them suspending the flights:
https://www.google.se/amp/s/www.bbc....d-12416303.amp

Morocco: Marrakesh https://www.jet2.com/News/Jet2holida...ST_PETERSBURG/

Tunisia: Enfidha
https://www.jet2.com/News/Jet2holidays_Goes_to_Tunisia/
There was at least a weekly Leeds-Enfidha flight.

There are also pictures and other articles regarding Jet2 operating to those countries.

Rimini priced itself out of the UK IT business twenty years+ ago. None of the major tour operators were willing to pay the daft rates the hoteliers wanted and they still won't.

Indeed TUI and the remains of Thomas Cook don't offer it anywhere in comparable EU markets either.

Right now the place an unpleasant crime ridden hole dominated by Eastern European and Russian criminals with a pretty boring beach and a €15.00 charge for a desk chair.

The only carrier offing direct flights from anywhere in the UK are Ryanair from Stansted a couple times a week in high season.

Its a busted flush; in the seventies the airport handled around 1.2million whilst even before COVID that had declined to under 400,000 per annum.
