Jet2.com and Jet2holidays Chief Executive Officer, Steve Heapy, has commented on the carriers’ new route, saying, “We are delighted to see our first flight to Tivat take off from Manchester Airport next week.”
“Feedback from customers and independent travel agents in the North West has been telling us that flights and holidays to Montenegro are very much in demand for Summer 23, and we know that Montenegro is a destination that customers want to get to. Since putting services on sale to this destination from Manchester Airport, local customers and independent travel agents have been booking getaways to Montenegro in their numbers.”
“As the UK’s largest tour operator, we are giving customers and independent travel agents in the region unrivalled choice when it comes to enjoying a holiday this summer.”
Adding to Heapy’s comments, Vladan Draskovic, Chief Executive Officer of Airports of Montenegro, adds, “We at Airports of Montenegro are delighted to welcome one of the leading leisure airlines to Tivat Airport.”
“At the mention, Jet2.com evokes the spirit of holiday, adventure and discovery. This summer is the right time for the UK travellers to revisit and rediscover once-well-loved spots in Montenegro. With the first spectacular views of Tivat Airport from the sky and warm welcome of our staff on the ground, every traveller will know this is the place to be.”
The Director of the National Tourism Organisation of Montenegro, Mrs Ana Tripkovic Markovic, PHD, also says, “Last year, we had about five times more tourists from the UK than in 2021, and we believe that the launch of the Manchester-Tivat airline route by Jet2.com will ensure that such trends continue. Montenegro offers numerous opportunities for different types of vacation.”
“We are sure that untouched nature, spacious beaches, excellent gastronomic offers, numerous events and a handful of opportunities for outdoor activities will leave quite an impression on British tourists. Hence, we invite you to come to Montenegro this year, where an unforgettable vacation and authentic experience await you.”
Finally, the Managing Director of Manchester Airport, Chris Woodroofe says, “Montenegro is an exciting destination with a rich variety of attractions, so we’re really excited to see Jet2.com expanding its route network from Manchester and offering passengers more choice.”
