Jet2.com and Jet2holidays are today (4th July) celebrating five years since they started operating award-winning flights and package holidays to Dalaman from London Stansted Airport.
The leading leisure airline and UK’s leading tour operator to many leisure destinations across the Mediterranean, including Turkey, first waved customers off on their inaugural flight from London Stansted Airport to Dalaman on 4th July 2017. Since then, Jet2.com and Jet2holiays have carried thousands of happy customers to the popular holiday hotspot.
When Jet2.com and Jet2holidays first launched flights and holidays to Dalaman from London Stansted Airport, the companies operated up to two weekly flights from the base to the Turkish sunshine.
With demand for flights and holidays to Dalaman soaring, Jet2.com and Jet2holiays have since expanded their Dalaman programme from London Stansted Airport to up to 12 weekly flights for Summer 22, with daily flights available and twice-daily services on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.
As a result of this growth, the leading leisure airline and tour operator have over 110,000 seats on sale for Summer 22 from London Stansted Airport to Dalaman, representing a capacity increase of over 1,000% compared to Summer 2017. This offers customers and independent travel agents unrivalled choice and flexibility when it comes to booking and travelling on award-winning flights and ATOL package holidays to the Turkish destination this summer.
Holidaymakers visiting Dalaman will discover a place where pine-clad mountains meet sparkling seascapes. A bucket-list must for visitors is the dreamy Blue Lagoon in Olu Deniz. There is also the chance to spot turtles at Iztuzu Beach and explore the tombs and mud baths of Dalyan. Whether holidaymakers are after active days or just soaking up the rays, this radiant region rolls everything into one gorgeous getaway.
As well as booking and travelling on award-winning flights and ATOL protected package holidays to Dalaman from London Stansted, customers can get to experience and enjoy the company’s VIP customer service which has seen Jet2.com and Jet2holidays win high-profile accolades. Most recently, the companies were named Travel Brand of the Year 2022 at this year’s Which? Travel Awards, in recognition of the way that they have treated customers, both during the pandemic as well as now that international travel has reopened.
This VIP customer service includes friendly flight times and a generous 22kg baggage allowance through a flight-only booking with Jet2.com, seeing the airline win five accolades at the 2020 TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice® Awards for Airlines; or that very same VIP customer service, in-resort Customer Helpers, transfers and ATOL protection with the UK’s largest tour operator to destinations in the Mediterranean, Jet2holidays.
As well as a choice of thousands of 2-5 star hotels through Jet2holidays, customers can take advantage of tens of thousands of Free Child Places this summer. The company has recently added a Free Child Place onto every single flight departing from the UK in June, July and August 2022, giving holidaymakers looking to get away to Dalaman a summer to really look forward to.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “We are delighted to be celebrating five years of operating our award-winning flights and package holidays to Dalaman from London Stansted Airport today.
