Jet2.com has responded to strong demand from fans of the Ryder Cup, by adding extra flights to Rome so that more people can get to the Marco Simone Golf and Country Club on the outskirts of Rome to witness the action first-hand next year. 

The leading leisure airline has put on extra flights to Rome from Birmingham, Manchester and London Stansted airports, after reporting strong bookings around the 2023 Ryder Cup dates. 

Jet2.com is already operating flights to Rome from six UK airports during the tournament and has moved quickly to add extra choice for golf fans wanting to travel to and from Rome to see Europe take on the United States. 

The following seven services have been added to Rome in response to continued demand for flights around the Ryder Cup dates: 

  • Birmingham – additional departures on Wednesday 27th September and Monday 2nd October 2023.  
  • Manchester – additional departures on Tuesday 26th September, Monday 2nd October and Tuesday 3rd October 2023. 
  • London Stansted – additional departures on Wednesday 27th September and Monday 2nd October 2023. 

These additional flights mean that Jet2.com will now operate 27 weekly flights from the UK to Rome during the tournament, giving customers and independent travel agents fantastic choice. 

This includes flights from: Birmingham (now six services available that week), Manchester (now nine services available that week), London Stansted (now six services available that week), Glasgow (two weekly services available), Leeds Bradford (two weekly services available) and Newcastle International (two weekly services available). 

As well as seat-only deals with Jet2.com, customers and independent travel agents can also book Jet2CityBreaks packages which include flights with Jet2.com (including 22kg hold luggage), 2-5 star accommodation in great locations, and ATOL protection all for a low £60 per person deposit. 

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “Next year’s Ryder Cup in Rome is a huge global sporting event, and the number of bookings we are seeing shows just how hotly-anticipated the tournament is. With so many people wanting to fly to Rome to witness the action in person, we have moved quickly to provide even more choice for customers and independent travel agents. Based on the demand we are seeing we expect seats to sell very quickly, so our advice is to book early and do not be left feeling below par by missing out. This is more great news for golfers and golf fans, coming just weeks after we launched our bespoke golf packages to Turkey.”
