Jet2holidays has today launched package holidays to the new destination of Bodrum – its second Turkish resort available direct from Glasgow Airport, bringing its total holiday destinations to 17.
On sale from today, ATOL protected breaks to this beautiful peninsula will start operating from 23rd May 2013. Package holidays flying on Thursdays start from just £365 per person based on two adults sharing for seven nights at 3 star apartments on a self-catering basis. Direct Jet2.com flights are also available from £72.99 including taxes.
In addition to launching this new destination, Jet2holidays has also put on sale its 2013 package holidays to the Turkish gem, Dalaman plus the popular Cypriot resort of Paphos – perfect for eager Scottish sun seekers keen to get next year’s break in the bag.
Steve Heapy, Managing Director of Jet2holidays and Chief Commercial Officer of Jet2.com said: “We are thrilled to add Bodrum to our growing portfolio of sun destinations available direct from Glasgow Airport. With the recent launch of Gran Canaria, this further demonstrates how committed we are to growing our range of sun holidays, giving the people of Scotland unrivalled choice for package breaks to popular European resorts direct from their local airport.
“Turkey, with its spectacular scenery and outstanding value for money, is an increasingly popular holiday destination. Together with Dalaman, we are anticipating a surge in Glasgow passengers wanting to explore even more of this tantalising country.”
Against the backdrop of lush green mountains and its famed turquoise coves, Bodrum offers something for all the family. Ancient castles, an abundance of bars and restaurants plus smaller, quieter resorts with great beaches, create a relaxing yet cultural escape. A must see trip for all the family is the Blue Voyage, a relaxing boat tour to see and swim in the idyllic bays that aren’t accessible by land.
Francois Bourienne, Commercial Director at Glasgow Airport, said: “Bodrum has always been a popular destination with Scottish holidaymakers and it is great to see Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, once again, respond to passenger demand by adding the Turkish holiday resort to its ever-growing list of destinations.”
Tolga Tuyluoglu, UK Director of the Turkish Culture and Tourism Office, said, “The Turkish Culture and Tourism Office is excited about the new route from Glasgow to Bodrum with Jet2.com. Bodrum is one of the most popular destinations in Turkey and is looking forward to hosting guests from Glasgow and the surrounding area. Jet2.com has become one of the leading airlines bringing British holiday makers to the Turkish sun.”
Steve Heapy added: “With average temperatures reaching over 30 degrees in the summer months, 12 degrees more than in the UK, Bodrum is the ideal summer holiday hotspot. With great value package holidays secured with our low £60 deposit, and four outbound flights a week, soaking up some Turkish delight couldn’t be easier next summer!”
