Jet2.com & Jet2holidays launch hat trick of new destinations

Jet2.com and Jet2holidays has announced details of its summer 2019 programme, with more than 12 million seats to go on sale, including three new destinations to Bourgas (Bulgaria), Chania (Crete) and Izmir (Turkey).

The programme represents another year of growth for the airline and operator and gives agents a bigger choice of package holidays to offer customers.

The company is increasing capacity by 12% for summer 2019, with more seats and holidays to its most popular sun and city destinations in Europe.

From May 2019, flights to Bourgas (Bulgaria) will launch to offer 100,000 seats in its first year of operation. The destination offers great value for money as well as miles of golden sands along the Black Sea. A range of two- to five-star hotels are available across resorts such as Sunny Beach, Nessebar, Obzor and St Vlas.

In total there are more than 55,000 seats available to Chania in Crete for next summer. The new route gives holidaymakers access to the northwest coast of Crete, opening up blue flag beaches and historic sights in resorts such as Rethymnon, Aghia Marina, Chania Town, Kalyves, Stalos and Kolymbari.

The third new destination of Izmir has been added in response to the huge demand for great value package holidays to Turkey. With almost 80,000 seats and eight weekly flights, holidaymakers have plenty of choice when it comes to accessing popular family-friendly resorts on the west coast of Turkey such as Kusadasi, Cesme, Ozdere and Seferihisar.

In addition, there are a further ten new routes launching for next summer including Birmingham to Bergerac, Kefalonia, Pula and Verona; Edinburgh to Bodrum and Corfu; Glasgow to Kos and Naples; Leeds Bradford to Krakow; and Manchester to La Rochelle.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “The addition of flights to Bourgas means we will operate to Bulgaria for the first time, and with resorts such as Sunny Beach on sale, we are expecting it be hugely popular with Britons. Greece continues to attract holidaymakers in huge numbers, and this new route Chania in Crete means that we will operate to eight Greek destinations in 2019.

"Finally, Turkey continues to see huge demand, so we are opening up more resorts on the west coast of this fantastic country, by adding flights and holidays to Izmir. We are hugely excited about summer 2019 when we will have thousands of two- to five-star hotels and a fleet of 94 aircraft full of happy holidaymakers enjoying the VIP customer service that Jet2.com and Jet2holidays delivers.”

In line with its family-friendly approach, the company recently expanded its Free Resort Flight Check-In service, meaning customers in nine destinations and 250 hotels can now securely drop their bags off on the last day of their holiday, making their flight home quicker, easier and more convenient.
