When it comes to flying, we’re experts round here. So we know the little extras make all the difference to your time onboard. And that’s why we’ve got a few tips and tricks up our sleeves to make sure time will fly while you’re having fun on your flight…

1. Download a new podcast

Having a couple of hours to spare is the ideal excuse to kick back and relax with a new podcast (perfect for a poolside listen too!). If you need some inspiration to get you started, take a look below for our top picks right now. And don’t forget to download before take-off – devices have to stay in flight mode for the whole flight!

2. Get pre-book savvy

Want to be served first at your seat? Of course you do, you’re on holiday! Pre-book your in-flight meal at least two days before you fly and you’ll get your food before anyone else. And that means no craning your neck to see if the Cabin Crew are at your row yet and no chance of your favourite meal being sold out either. Check out the selection here.

3. Pamper yourself!

For fabulous in-flight treats, look no further than our very own Jet2shop magazine. And the pampering can start onboard with delights like our Crew-favourite Elemis skincare range to make sure you land with glowing skin! Simply pick up your Jet2shop, choose what you’d like and we’ll serve you from the comfort of your seat. Returning to the UK? Why not take advantage of an increased allowance in duty-free products? Take a peek at Jet2shop now.


4. A toast to you

Whether you have a special occasion to mark or you just want to celebrate soaring off somewhere fabulous, we’ve got you covered. Just check out our in-flight menu for fantastic drink deals, as well as tasty snacks and delicious meals. For fizz fans, we have prosecco ready for you to pop, and even Champagne if you’re feeling fancy – also available to pre-book! If a cup of tea is more, well, your cup of tea, not to worry – there are plenty of hot and soft drinks for you to enjoy too.
