The Leeds based business – which is the operator of and Jet2Holidays – flies to and from 13 Spanish destinations, including mainland airports Barcelona, Malaga and Alicante, and to islands including Majorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Tenerife. However the company, which is believed to have around 1,000 staff in the European country, is now poised to carry out a significant restructure of its operations in Spain. It is understood the review could affect up to 35% of its staff in Spain.

A consultation is now under way with staff within a number of affected divisions.

A spokesperson confirmed: “We have recently reviewed our operations in Spain. As a result, we must sadly propose a number of colleague redundancies across Resort Flight Check-in, Flight Deck and Cabin Crew roles.

“We deeply regret these proposed redundancies, and we will be consulting with appropriate representatives of the affected colleagues to ensure that all options are fully considered.”

The announcement comes a week after the company announced it will make Bournemouth Airport its 12th base, launching 16 routes from the coastal airport in April 2025. Jet2, the UK’s third largest airline and biggest tour operator in the country, said it wants to match demand from the South of England. Around 100 new jobs will be created at the base.
