Announcements

Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have brought forward the start of their Summer 23 season to Bodrum, with flights operating from the beginning of April from Birmingham, Manchester and London Stansted Airports for the first time.   

The leading leisure airline and UK’s leading tour operator to Turkey have added more flights and holidays to Bodrum from Birmingham, Manchester and London Stansted Airports, with services now starting from 3rd April onwards. With more customers looking to get away to the Turkish sunshine next year, this announcement gives customers and independent travel agents even more choice and flexibility.  

The addition of these new flights, as well as a choice of fantastic hotels that are ready to book from early-April onwards, comes in response to customers looking to grab a slice of early summer sun. Hotels on sale include the 4* family favourite Bodrum Holiday Resort & Spa, the 4* Maxeria Blue Didyma, the 4* Parkim Ayaz as well as the 4* Very Chic, amongst many more.  

Today’s announcement comes on the back of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays working alongside the Government, hoteliers and partners in Turkey to bring even more happy holidaymakers to this stunning destination. 

Stretching from Turkey's southwest coast into the Aegean Sea, Bodrum sits amongst crumbling ruins, beautiful bays and yacht-filled marinas and provides the perfect blend of age-old tradition and modern attractions. With an exciting street-food scene, bustling bazaars, great-value bars, and a castle dating back to the crusades, Bodrum has a big-city buzz about it. Thrill-seekers should head to Gumbet where a surf-splashed shore awaits, while Bar Street offers a lively night scene. For beach-lovers, there is the all-rounder resort of Altinkum, offering three sensational strips of golden sand and great-value entertainment. A favourite for holidaymakers seeking sunshine, the region has retained its authentic side, with traditional Turkish cuisine and incredible ancient ruins at Bodrum’s heart. 

The additional services mean Jet2.com and Jet2holidays are operating up to seven weekly services to Bodrum during April 2023. The April programme is as follows: 

Birmingham 

  • Introduction of Monday and Friday services from 3rd April 2023, means up to two weekly services available from the base in April.  

Manchester 

  • An earlier start to the Summer 23 season, means up to two weekly services (Thursday and Sunday) now available from the base from 6th April. This increases to up to three weekly services (Thursday, Saturday and Sunday) from 15th April onwards.  

London Stansted  

  • Up to two weekly services (Monday and Friday) operating from 3rd April onwards, gives more choice and flexibility to customers and independent travel agents looking to enjoy some early summer sun.   

Just last month, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays were awarded with the prestigious title of Which? Travel Brand of the Year, in recognition of the way that the companies have treated customers both during the pandemic as well as now that international travel has reopened. Despite disruption affecting the industry in recent weeks, Jet2.com has not cancelled any flights due to staff shortages and has been receiving positive feedback for the way its highly visible teams have continued to look after customers at all stages of the journey. 

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “We are delighted to be bringing forward the start of the Summer season to Bodrum and offering flights and holidays to this popular destination from April 2023 from Birmingham, Manchester and London Stansted Airports. The earlier start to the season has been done in conjunction with our partners in Turkey who we have worked hard with to make this happen and is a result of a successful partnership. By working in conjunction with the Turkish government, hoteliers and our partners, we are able to extend the season to Bodrum by offering flights and holidays from the beginning of April for the first time ever and providing customers and independent travel agents with even greater choice when it comes to escaping the April showers. With a fantastic selection of hotels on sale too, we know this April programme will be enormously popular.” 

Director of GoTurkiye office in London; Arzu Yilmaz, said: “Bodrum has long been popular with British visitors, and we are delighted with this vote of confidence by Jet2.com and Jet2holidays in one of Turkiye’s leading destinations. We welcome the additional flights they will be operating, and are confident they will prove popular with those seeking some early summer sun.”
