The seating on the aircraft is generally standard seating, if you require extra leg room this can be booked via their website at an extra cost however this is not always suitable for people travelling with children, disabled or elderly people as they are normally exit seats.
As far as we are aware Jet2 does not offer any inflight entertainment, the use of their portable DVD plyers which were previously available for hire seems to of been discontinued. If you are travelling with children and require entertainment taking a backpack with things to keep them entertained during the flight is advised.
Jet2 offer a range of delicious meals and snacks that can be purchased on-board the aircraft, you can also pre-book meals which will save you money and also guarantee you a hot meal during your flight. If you did not manage to pre-book a meal don’t worry as there is a wide selection to choose from including snacks and sandwiches.
All passengers can book hold luggage if required at an extra cost, with Jet2 this is a very generous 22kg for the first bag booked plus you can add an additional 2 bags if needed at an extra cost. Passengers are also allocated up to 10kg hand baggage no larger than 56cmx45cmx25cm, this is also handy if you don’t wish to take hold baggage and are just going on a weekend trip.
