Major Travel expands short-haul offering

Trade-only tour operator Major Travel has launched its first short-haul product by offering easyJet and Jet2 flights.

The company already works with low-cost airlines in mid and long-haul destinations but will now offer a variety of new routes and regional departure points.

The decision follows strong demand for short-haul packages as a result of the cost of living crisis and inflation across the travel space.

The new flights are bookable through its mobile-friendly Major Go platform which features luggage inclusive rates with easyJet – something which is not available on the airline’s web site.

Qasim Gulamhusein, Managing Director of Major Travel, said: “Our goal is to support our agent partners as much as we can. As the cost-of-living crisis deepens and with no end in sight, agents are looking to offer their clients the best value for money possible. We are confident that the travel market will continue to bounce back, and more flight routes will return to pre-pandemic levels, but for some holidaymakers budget will continue to be a key factor.

Gulamhusein added: “Agents can already book with low-cost carriers such as Pegasus, Scoot and Sun Express, but the addition of easyJet and Jet2 will help us support our travel partners in other regions. Our platform now allows them to combine our comprehensive European programme with more direct routes from more UK airports than ever before.”
