10th February 2020 • Posted in New Routes, Announcements

Our eagerly-anticipated programme of Christmas market flights and trips for 2020 is now on sale, and the festive selection is bigger and more spectacular than ever - with more destinations, more flights and more choice.

With European Christmas markets continuing to enjoy enormous popularity, we have introduced a mini-series of flights and city breaks to a festive assortment of winter wonderlands from November until just before Christmas including brand-new destination - Strasbourg.

 

The Strasbourg Christmas market is the oldest in France, and from November the whole town transforms into a winter wonderland with its charming streets and squares turned into a stunning Christmas scene.

 

As the leading leisure airline and UK’s largest operator of European city breaks, we have sprinkled even more Christmas cheer into our 2020 programme, by also introducing a series of dedicated two-night trips, perfect for a quick Christmas getaway.

In addition, we will operate scheduled flights and city breaks to several popular Christmas market destinations during the winter and in the build up to Christmas. With multiple weekly flights on sale to destinations such as Amsterdam, Budapest, Barcelona, Prague and Krakow, customers have complete choice and flexibility over how long they spend visiting the most charming Christmas markets in Europe – whether it’s for a weekend, a long weekend or longer.
