Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have today announced a major expansion to their Summer 24 programme after putting even more flights and holidays on sale to 17 sunshine destinations from across ten of their UK bases for Spring and Easter.
The expansion means that the companies have extended the summer season to three destinations next summer too – Tivat, Girona and Izmir – in response to demand.
75,000 additional seats across Summer ‘24
In response to strong demand from customers looking to enjoy some early summer sun, the leading leisure airline and UK’s largest tour operator have added an additional 75,000 seats to popular sunshine destinations, including:
Turkey (Antalya, Izmir and Bodrum), Croatia (Dubrovnik), Mainland Spain (Girona, Alicante and Reus), the Balearics (Ibiza, Majorca and Menorca), Montenegro (Tivat), Portugal (Faro), Cyprus (Larnaca), Italy (Naples), Greece (Rhodes) and the Canaries (Tenerife and Gran Canaria).
With more holidaymakers looking to book or travel earlier in the summer season, the new flights have been added in March, April and May 2024 and are timed perfectly for the Easter holidays and Spring.
Expansion from 10 bases
The extra capacity has been added from ten of their UK bases – Belfast International, Birmingham, Bristol, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, Manchester, Newcastle International and London Stansted Airports. (the additional services are broken down by base below).
Strong demand for flights and ATOL protected package holidays means Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have brought forward the start of their Summer 24 season to three destinations – Tivat, Girona and Izmir, with flights on sale to these sunshine hotspots earlier than ever.
As a result of the expansion, flights will now start operating from the end of March to Girona and Izmir and from the beginning of April to Tivat for the first time.
Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have further responded to the trend for Spring and Easter holidays by adding extra capacity to Dubrovnik, Ibiza, Reus and Rhodes in April and May, giving customers and independent travel agents even more choice and flexibility when it comes to enjoying a slice of early summer sun.
In addition, the airline and package holiday specialist have put new flights on sale to Antalya, Bodrum, Faro, Larnaca, Gran Canaria, Naples, Palma (Majorca), Menorca, Alicante, and Tenerife, as holidaymakers flock to book getaways earlier in the summer season.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “As the UK’s largest tour operator, we are continuing to react quickly to the demand we are seeing by adding on even more capacity for Summer 24.”
“Customers and independent travel agents have been flocking to book holidays for the early summer season, so we are delighted to be offering even more choice and flexibility to 17 sun destinations.”
“By extending the season to Tivat, Girona and Izmir, as well as adding additional services to a host of destinations for the early summer season, we are giving customers exactly what they want – an early slice of summer sun, and we know just how much they will be jumping at the chance to get away and grab this.”
