Demonstrating Our Year-Round Commitment to Cyprus

15th May 2019 • Posted in Announcements

During recent meetings with hoteliers and representatives from the Cypriot tourism industry, we signalled our commitment to Cyprus as a key holiday destination, and announced our biggest ever summer and winter programmes to the island.

A number of colleagues, including Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays, held meetings in Cyprus last week and showcased how, unlike other tour operators, we have continued to demonstrate our year-round commitment to Cyprus by increasing capacity and investing in our partnership approach with hotels and the industry. This includes growing our team, working in partnership to create mutually beneficial relationships, and investing in marketing support to drive business to the island.

We have almost 550,000 seats on sale between the UK and the destinations of Paphos and Larnaca in Summer 19, a capacity increase of 16%. During peak periods, we will operate 56 weekly flights between the UK and Cyprus this summer, representing yet another year of growth and giving customers more choice and flexibility than ever before.

With 200,000 seats on sale in Winter 19, a capacity increase of more than 45%, we also pledged to continue working with hotel partners and the tourist board to showcase the appeal of Cyprus as both a summer and winter destination. With more Britons heading to Cyprus for some Winter Sun, we have significantly expanded our winter capacity to accommodate this demand, including flights to Paphos from all nine of our UK bases in Winter 19/20.

As well as discussing our growth in Cyprus, Mr Heapy highlighted how and Jet2holidays continues to invest in quality so that customers are given a VIP customer experience. We have a range of 2-5 star hotels on sale in Cyprus, including many with free Resort Flight Check-in. On top of that, we also have more customer helpers in airports and in resort.


Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays said: “By working in partnership with hoteliers and the industry here in Cyprus, we are able to continue our growth strategy and we are very much looking forward to more success in the future. Cyprus is an absolutely critical destination, so we will keep working with the industry to attract holidaymakers in the summer and winter, filling Cypriot hotels all-year round with customers on a package holiday they can trust.”
