12th February 2021 • Posted in Announcements

We have responded to demand from customers looking to enjoy some Greek sunshine in late summer, by adding more flights and holidays to Zante, Crete (Heraklion), Rhodes and Kefalonia, extending the Summer 21 season and providing customers with more choice.

With customers looking to get away for their much-needed holidays, today’s announcement gives them even more choice in the late summer period, thanks to the addition of almost 80 flights in October and November.

The addition of these new flights, as well as an expanded choice of 2-5 star hotels and great deals, means that we have moved quickly to provide customers with more opportunity to grab a slice of the summer sun.

The new flights added today are as follows:

Zante – 34 new flights introduced, with extra flying from Birmingham, East Midlands, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, Manchester, Newcastle and London Stansted. As well as extending the season until the end of October for the first time, we have a wider selection of hotels and resorts on sale in Zante than ever before.

Rhodes – 20 new flights introduced, with extra flying Edinburgh, Glasgow, Birmingham, East Midlands, Leeds Bradford, Manchester, Newcastle and London Stansted. As a result, we are extending the summer season in Rhodes to mid-November.

Crete (Heraklion) – almost 20 new flights introduced, with extra flying from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Birmingham, East Midlands, Leeds Bradford, Manchester, Newcastle and London Stansted. This means we are extending the summer season in Heraklion to 9th November.

Kefalonia - extra flying from Glasgow, Birmingham, East Midlands, Leeds Bradford and Manchester means that we are extending the summer season in Kefalonia to mid-October.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “There continues to be enormous pent-up demand from British holidaymakers, who want nothing more than to get away to the sunshine and enjoy their well-deserved holidays. As always, we listen to what customers want and react accordingly, so that we can provide them with the holiday choices that they want. Extending the summer season to Greece means we are doing exactly that; giving customers more opportunity to get away and enjoy a much-needed holiday. As a result of the assurance that customers get from our award-winning flights and ATOL protected package holidays, we will be continuing to respond to the demand so that when travel restarts, we can take customers from our rainy islands to their favourite holiday hotspots.”

Emy Anagnostopoulou, Director GNTO UK Office, said: “We are extremely excited to hear that Jet2.com and Jet2holidays will be extending their summer season to Greece in response to customer demand. We would like to thank everyone at Jet2.com and Jet2holidays for believing in Greece as an inspirational destination as well as for their continuous support and we are sure that their customers will enjoy their holidays to Crete, Rhodes, Zante and Kefalonia. The unbelievable summer weather, even in October and November, and these additional flights will help their customers explore the breath-taking scenery and the delicious gastronomy of these four flagship islands.”
