« Back and Jet2holidays Announces Winter Sun Wonderland

04th October 2018 • Posted in Announcements

Our biggest ever Winter Sun programme is NOW ON SALE for Winter 19/20, with demand for sunshine during the long British winter fuelling another year of growth.

Winter Sun

With over 3.2 million seats on sale to the sunshine next winter, this represents a capacity increase of 14% - almost 400,000 extra seats when compared to this winter.

With traditionally popular Winter Sun destinations such as the Canary Islands, Mainland Spain and Portugal continuing to grow, another driver of our expanded programme is the increasing popularity of destinations that may previously have been viewed as summer sun hotspots, such as Turkey and Cyprus.

As more holidaymakers look to enjoy the Turkish sunshine during Winter, we have expanded our Turkey programme for Winter 19/20 – with over 140,000 seats on sale to Antalya alone, a capacity increase of more than 40%. The addition of more frequent services and longer seasons to Antalya means that we do not just operate there from all nine of our UK bases, but we will also operate year round from Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester and London Stansted.

Our Cyprus programme has also expanded significantly next winter, with almost 200,000 seats on sale to Paphos and Larnaca, representing 42% capacity growth. More flights and longer seasons mean that almost 60,000 additional departing seats are on sale to Cyprus compared to this winter.

Key highlights on our Winter Sun programme for 19/20 include:


Winter Turkish Delight! Over 140,000 seats on sale to Antalya means a capacity increase of 44% - driven by extra services and a longer season. Strong growth to Antalya means up to 17 weekly services from across nine UK bases.

Cyprus: Almost 200,000 seats on sale to Paphos and Larnaca as more Britons rush to Cyprus for some Winter Sun

More of Malta: Additional services to Malta, means a capacity increase of 25% and over 45,000 seats on sale

Canary Islands: Over 1.5 million seats on sale to Tenerife, Lanzarote, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura, representing a capacity increase of 10% and up to 150 weekly services across the four islands

Mainland Spain: Almost 850,000 seats on sale to Malaga and Alicante, meaning capacity increased by 12%

Faro (Algarve): An extra 25,000 seats means almost 250,000 seats on sale – a capacity increase of 12%

Balearic Islands: Over 175,000 seats on sale to Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza meaning a 7% capacity increase to the Balearics

This programme means that we are offering our biggest ever winter sun range, and with everything wrapped up in one package, holidaymakers have access to great value ATOL protected package breaks across thousands of 2-5 star hotels, with flights, industry leading 22kg baggage allowance and airport transfers included, through a £60 per person deposit.

As ever, we have designed our programme in direct response to demand from holidaymakers, so as well as continuing to offer more flights and holidays to popular winter hotspots such as the Canaries, Balearics, Portugal and Spain, we are delighted to be expanding our Winter offering to fantastic destinations such as Turkey, Cyprus and Malta.
