The Group is a Leisure Travel business specialising in:
- the provision of ATOL licensed package holidays by its tour operator, Jet2holidays, to leisure destinations in the Mediterranean, the Canary Islands and to European Leisure Cities; and
- the provision of scheduled holiday flights by its airline, Jet2.com.
The Group has over 8,000 suppliers and sources its goods and services globally; it encourages transparency in its supply chains and has implemented measures to mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking.
A number of our uniform items are supplied by factories in Asia and the Indian sub-continent and the Group works collaboratively with those suppliers to improve supply chain standards. Our suppliers are active members of Sedex (Suppliers Ethical Data Exchange) and proactively share audit results to drive improvement.
In 2019 the Group launched our new IT hub, Jet2 Travel Technologies, based in Pune, India. In addition to having robust contractual provisions requiring full compliance with the UK’s modern slavery laws, we have worked closely with Jet2 Travel Technologies to establish recruitment and procurement policies and procedures which are aligned to those of the rest of the Group. In addition, other policies such as code of conduct, prevention of sexual harassment (POSH) as well as strict compliance to local labour and welfare regulations ensure that the standard of employee welfare exceeds the regulatory norms and the overall industry benchmarks. We monitor Jet2 Travel Technologies’ activity closely on an ongoing basis, including full visibility of all expenditure, regular site visits and having Group representatives on the Board of Directors.
The Group is committed to having an ongoing and open dialogue with its suppliers. Confirmation is requested from supplier senior management that they are satisfied that key operations (both in the UK and overseas) have suitable preventative measures in place to prevent modern slavery and, where applicable, the Group works with its suppliers to ensure robust preventative measures are in place. In addition, contractual terms are regularly reviewed to ensure suppliers are contractually obliged to implement and manage processes to prevent modern slavery. The Group continues to monitor its suppliers on an ongoing basis.
The Group has in place the following policies reflecting its commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all its business relationships:
- Anti-Corruption & Bribery policy;
- Equality & Diversity Policy; and
- Whistleblowing Policy.
