THE CITY that famously never sleeps has become closer than ever before for Yorkshire holidaymakers after Jet2.com confirmed details of flights to New York from Leeds-Bradford airport later this year.

Christmas shopping on Fifth Avenue, nights on Broadway and all the other famous sights of downtown Manhattan, including the Statue of Liberty, the Staten Island ferry and the Empire State Building will be just eight hours away from the Broad Acres between October and December.

The Leeds-based low-cost airline has secured seven flights to America’s most celebrated city, including two family-friendly half-term trips in October and a chance to celebrate New Year in the Big Apple.

The flights are available as part of four-night trips with Jet2CityBreaks and cost from £749 per person at a choice of top New York hotels. Flight-only options are also available from jet2.com from £399 per person.

Jet2.com chief executive Steve Heapy said: “We are thrilled to be able to offer customers this experience direct from Leeds Bradford airport. This is our most ambitious programme yet with more choice of flights and hotels than ever before.

“I’m sure these breaks, be it shopping, October half-term, Thanksgiving or the New Year packages will be a real cause for celebration.”
