Jet2.com and Jet2holidays will operate well over 400 routes from across 11 UK airports in Summer 24, with over 17 million seats on sale in total.
Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have once again responded to the continued strong demand from holidaymakers and independent travel agents by expanding their Summer 24 programme, including the addition of three new routes.
The expansion has seen the companies add two new routes from Birmingham Airport – Tivat (Montenegro) and Lesvos – as well as a new route to Verona from Glasgow Airport.
This means that Jet2.com and Jet2holidays will operate well over 400 routes from across 11 UK airports in Summer 24, with over 17 million seats on sale in total.
The UK’s largest tour operator and third largest airline have responded to demand from customers and independent travel agents by adding flights and holidays to Tivat in Montenegro for Summer 24 from Birmingham Airport, with flights operating from 2nd May through to 31st October. A weekly Thursday service will operate from 2nd May, with a second weekly service (Monday) coming into operation from 1st July. This means Jet2.com and Jet2holidays will operate to Tivat from three UK airports in Summer 24 (Birmingham, Manchester and London Stansted).
Montenegro offers customers a wealth of history and culture alongside stunning scenery and weather. With resorts on offer including Budvar, Becici and Kotor Bay, customers can enjoy mountains, natural parks, lakes, beaches and port towns in this incredible destination.
The second new route from Birmingham Airport for Summer 24 is the sun-kissed island of Lesvos, with weekly Sunday services operating from 26th May through to 6th October. In addition to this new route, the companies have also added a second weekly service to Lesvos from London Stansted Airport for Summer 24.
Lesvos is the third largest island in Greece, with Jet2.com and Jet2holidays operating there from Birmingham, Manchester and London Stansted for Summer 24. The island’s magical landscape features knockout beaches and hills blanketed in olive plantations, giving customers everything from adventure to laid-back days in the sunshine.
Holidaymakers and independent travel agents in the Glasgow area are also offered more choice as a result of today’s announcement, thanks to the launch of flights, city breaks and holidays to Lake Garda and Verona. From 8th May through to 25th September, the companies will operate weekly Wednesday services to Verona Airport.
The majestic Lake Garda is on Verona’s doorstep, giving customers access to rugged alpine vistas, idyllic waterfront towns and lush vineyards. At the north end, customers can enjoy a range of sports from biking and hiking to sailing and windsurfing. Further south, customers can enjoy village-hopping, wine tasting and lots of al fresco dining. Each lakeside spot comes with its own unique charm whether that is Gardone Riviera with its old-world elegance, Limone with its laid-back Mediterranean flavour or the medieval town of Peschiera.
Famed as the setting for Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers, the city of Verona also has romance around every corner – with pretty piazzas and a tangle of medieval backstreets.
News of this expansion comes as Jet2.com and Jet2holidays continue to experience demand for their award-winning flights and holidays. Customers and independent travel agents have continued to praise the companies, resulting in them winning Which? Travel Brand of the Year in recent weeks, as well as being the highest ranked tour operator and airline in the UK Customer Satisfaction Index published by the Institute of Customer Service.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “As well as looking forward to a busy Summer 23, we are also seeing lots of customers want to book ahead for next summer which is great news. In response to that, we are moving to give customers and independent travel agents even more choice thanks to the launch of three brand new routes for Summer 24. This expansion further strengthens a programme which is already our biggest ever, and we know that it will be very popular with customers and independent travel agents right across each airport region.”
