We have put our flights and holidays on sale from Birmingham Airport for Summer 21 which includes two brand-new and exclusive destinations Kalamata (Peloponnese)

and Lesvos. It means that our Summer 21 programme is now on sale from all nine of our UK bases.

The huge summer programme means over 2.2 million seats have gone on sale from Birmingham Airport - a capacity increase of 6% compared to Summer 20.


The expanded programme means that we are offering customers more choice and flexibility than ever before when it comes to reaching their favourite summer hotspots such as the Canaries, Balearics, Spain, Greece, Turkey and Cyprus.


With multiple weekly, daily, and even multiple daily flights to many of these destinations, holidaymakers can enjoy complete flexibility over how long they holiday for – a move we pioneered ten years ago so that customers can choose ATOL protected holidays of any duration to suit their budgets and needs.


The introduction of flights and holidays to Kalamata (Peloponnese) and Lesvos for the first time gives holidaymakers in the Midlands even more variety when it comes to getting away in Summer 21.

Home to the ancient Sparta and birthplace of the Olympic Games, it has a spectacular history, and with resorts including Stoupa, Agios Nikolaos, Skafidia, Kalamata and Kyllini on sale, it offers holidaymakers everything they need from sun and sand to ancient history and heritage.



Weekly services to Lesvos every Thursday between 6th May – 7th October means holidaymakers have exclusive access to Greece’s third largest island which features architectural marvels, natural beauty, traditional villages and beaches that stretch for miles.
