Leon McQuaid, head of aviation development at Newcastle International Airport, said: “These special Christmas market trips are extremely popular with the North East travelling public.
“Budapest is a very sought-after city break, and I am sure that alongside Strasbourg these two new options will be very well received.
“We have had a lot of feedback from customers looking to visit Budapest, so it is brilliant that we can now offer this seasonal break with Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks, as they continue to invest in the region.”
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com said: “Our flights and city breaks to Europe’s most magical Christmas markets prove to be more and more popular from Newcastle Airport every year, and this latest programme promises to be our best yet.
