Our flights and holidays programme to Greece keeps getting bigger and better, thanks to the launch of two more brand new Greek destinations for Summer 20LESVOS (Mytilene Airport) and PELOPONNESE(Kalamata Airport).

We will start operating flights in May to both destinations from Manchester and London Stansted Airports, in response to the enormous demand from holidaymakers.

The launch of flights and holidays to Lesvos means we are the only airline to fly to the island from Manchester and London Stansted Airports. We will operate twice weekly services from Manchester (Thursday and Sunday) and weekly services from London Stansted (Sunday)from 2nd May through to 10th October, giving holidaymakers from both bases exclusive access to Greece’s third largest island which features architectural marvels, natural beauty, traditional villages and beaches that stretch for miles. With resorts including Anaxos, Molivos, Petra and Skala Kallonis holidaymakers are spoiled for choice when it comes to history, sightseeing, cuisine, beaches and water sports.

In addition, the introduction of flights to Kalamata means that we will operate to the Peloponnese region for the first time. We will operate twice weekly services from Manchester (Wednesday and Sunday) and a weekly Sunday service from London Stansted. Both routes will be served from 3rd May through to 1st November, giving holidaymakers access to a region spread across four peninsulas which reach out into the aquamarine Aegean and Ionian Seas, and are filled with mountains, forests, olive groves, waterfalls, beaches and secluded coves. 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.

 

Today’s announcement means that we will launch four brand new Greek destinations in Summer 20, with flights and holidays also commencing to Skiathos and Preveza. We will operate our biggest ever programme to Greece in Summer 20, with 12 destinations on sale - Lesvos, Peloponnese, Skiathos, Preveza, Corfu, Crete (Heraklion), Crete (Chania), Kefalonia, Kos, Rhodes, Halkidiki and Zante.

 

With multiple weekly flights to many of these Greek destinations, it means holidaymakers can enjoy more flexibility around how long they choose to holiday for – a move which Jet2holidays pioneered ten years ago so that customers can choose holidays of any length to suit their budgets and needs.

 

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “The addition of flights and holidays to Lesvos and Peloponnese is yet more fantastic news for holidaymakers and independent travel agents. There has been enormous demand for these two spectacular destinations from Manchester and London Stansted Airports, and we are sure that our award-winning flights and holidays will be hugely popular with holidaymakers in both destinations. Our Summer 20 programme continues to grow, and with twelve Greek destinations now on sale, we are offering holidaymakers more choice and flexibility than ever before.”
