Take off for Summer 21 with and Jet2holidays’ Biggest Ever Programme from Leeds Bradford Airport

04th March 2020 • Posted in Announcements and Jet2holidays is offering customers more flights and holidays than ever from Leeds Bradford Airport for Summer 21, thanks to the launch of its biggest ever summer programme which includes three brand new and exclusive destinations - Santorini, Skiathos and Lisbon.

The leading leisure airline and package holiday specialist has put its award-winning flights and holidays on sale for Summer 21 from Leeds Bradford Airport today, meaning customers and independent travel agents can book earlier than ever. The huge summer programme means over two million seats have gone on sale, representing 80,000 extra seats - a capacity increase of 4%.  

The expanded programme means that Yorkshire’s leading airline and holiday provider is 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 which Jet2holidays pioneered ten years ago so that customers can choose holidays of any duration to suit their budgets and needs.

The introduction of flights and holidays to Santorini, Skiathos and Lisbon for the first time gives Yorkshire holidaymakers even more variety when it comes to getting away in Summer 21. No other company operates to any of these destinations from Leeds Bradford, making these routes exclusive to and Jet2holidays.


The addition of a weekly Thursday service from 6th May – 28th October means that and Jet2holidays customers can access a picture-perfect destination which is on many people’s bucket lists. As well as soaking up breathtaking views along the caldera, holidaymakers can see the world-famous sunset at Oia, enjoy the local vineyards, or take in one of a number of key archaeological sites. Jet2holidays customers can choose from a great selection of accommodation which ranges from traditional family run hotels to 5* honeymoon retreats in resorts such as Imerovigli, Kamari, Megalachori, Perissa, Perivolos and Thira.


Weekly services to Skiathos every Wednesday between 26th May – 22nd September means that holidaymakers can visit the island which has been hailed ‘the Aegean paradise’ thanks to its teal-tinted waters, white beaches, terracotta-topped towns, and luscious leafy landscapes. Holidaymakers to Skiathos can enjoy popular Skiathos Town or head to Achladies, Agia Paraskevi or Kolios where go-slow is the name of the game.


The addition of two weekly services (Monday and Thursday) to Lisbon comes in response to demand from holidaymakers looking to explore Lisbon’s cobbled alleyways, ancient ruins and white domed cathedrals, as well as those looking to enjoy a holiday to one of its coastal resorts with Cascais, Estoril and Sintra all easily accessible.

Cascais is a traditional and charming Portuguese fishing town with a trio of golden bays, while the town of Estoril on the Portuguese Riviera is famous for its glitzy casino and palm-fringed landscaped gardens. Those looking for extravagant palaces, rippling mountains and opulent mansions can head to the city of Sintra, which has UNESCO World Heritage status and is home to beautiful parks, castles, and buildings like Pena Palace, Castelo do Mouros and the Quinta de Regaleira.
