Jet2holidays

26th April 2018 • Posted in New Routes, Announcements

We are delighted to announce exciting details of our Summer 19 programme, including THREE BRAND NEW DESTINATIONS to Bourgas (Bulgaria), Chania (Crete) and Izmir (Turkey).

Our Summer 19 programme represents yet another year of growth, with more than 12 million seats on sale. This means a capacity increase of 12%, with over 1,200 weekly flights operating to 58 popular sun and city destinations in Europe during peak periods.

From May 2019, we will operate flights to Bourgas (Bulgaria), with almost 100,000 seats on sale in our first year of operation. This brand new destination offers great value for money as well as miles of golden sands along the Black Sea. What’s more, with a range of 2-5 star hotels on sale, holidaymakers can soak up the Balkan sun in resorts such as Sunny Beach, Nessebar, Obzor and St Vlas.

Another great flyer, Stanislav Yevetski, the Bulgarian actor best known for his role as Victor Krum in Harry Potter, has helped this Bourgas announcement get off to a flying start by supporting the launch to his home country, Bulgaria.

Our next brand new destination for Summer 19 is Chania (Crete). In total there will be more than 55,000 seats on sale to our second destination in Crete, alongside Heraklion. The addition of Chania is also our eighth destination in Greece. This brand new route gives holidaymakers access to the northwest coast of Crete, opening up blue flag beaches and historic sights in resorts such as Rethymnon, Aghia Marina, Chania Town, Kalyves, Stalos and Kolymbari.

Our third brand new destination for Summer 19 is Izmir (Turkey), which has been added in response to huge demand for great value package holidays to Turkey. With almost 80,000 seats, holidaymakers have plenty of choice when it comes to accessing popular family friendly resorts on the west coast of Turkey such as Kusadasi, Cesme, Ozdere and Seferihisar. Our fourth Turkish destination will be extremely popular with holidaymakers looking for exceptional weather, great value, and fabulous cuisine with beautiful beaches and the Dilek National Park within easy reach.

In addition, there are another 10 new routes launching for Summer 19. These are:

  • Birmingham – four new routes to Bergerac, Kefalonia, Pula and Verona
  • Edinburgh – two brand new routes to Bodrum and Corfu
  • Glasgow – two brand new routes to Kos and Naples
  • Leeds Bradford – the addition of a new Summer route to Krakow
  • Manchester – launch of a brand new route to La Rochelle

To support this huge Summer 19 programme, we will operate 94 aircraft in Summer – including 34 brand new Boeing 737-800 NG aircraft.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “We are extremely excited about our Summer 19 programme, which is our biggest and best to date. Three brand new destinations and a number of brand new routes give holidaymakers even more choice with our award-winning airline and package holiday business.

“The addition of flights to Bourgas means we will operate to Bulgaria for the first time, and with resorts such as Sunny Beach on sale, we are expecting it be hugely popular with Britons. Greece continues to attract holidaymakers in huge numbers, and this new route Chania in Crete means that we will operate to eight Greek destinations in 2019. Finally, Turkey continues to see huge demand, so we are opening up more resorts on the west coast of this fantastic country, by adding flights and holidays to Izmir. We are hugely excited about Summer 19 when we will have thousands of 2-5-star hotels and a fleet of 94 aircraft full of happy holidaymakers enjoying the VIP customer service that Jet2.com and Jet2holidays delivers.”
