New low-cost airline jetXtra.com, from next month will be operating flights

into Alicante from Humberside Airport.

They are aspiring to be different from other low cost operators and are

shaking up the travel industry by offering "transparent fares". They say their

focus has been to offer completely honest upfront pricing with no hidden

extras, passengers will be able to enjoy a free luggage allowance of 20kg and

no debit/credit card charges either. All flights are ATOL protected to give passengers

complete financial security and peace of mind. Flights will be available from as little

as £19.99 one-way from Alicante to Humberside, making it easy for ex pats from the

East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire regions to visit friends and family back home.


Flights can be booked online via jetXTRA.com

 

 

Will they live up to their promises? jetXTRA.com

I went on their website and despite a big "from £19.99" sign on the home page they quoted about £230 - £240 return irrespective of which dates I tried.. They may have no hidden charges but low cost they are not.

I think there is a typo on their website. £119.00 seems the cheapest deal, not £19.99

They aren't really an airline. They are a "virtual" airline where they charter planes from other companies. If you book, you'll probably find you're on a Jet2 plane. Obviously, the more competition the better but it's always best to look around.

I am going to report them to the ASA. I have just looked further into their website which states "Flights from Humberside to Alicante and Palma de Mallorca will operate every Tuesday between the 28th May and 24th September 2013, early booking fares start from just £79.99 one-way including all taxes and charges".  £19.99 seems to be pie in the sky.

REPORTED. Let's see what the headline price is in a few days time...
