Tour operator Jet2holidays and airline Jet2.com have added more than 80 flights in October and November to four Greek islands to meet higher demand for the destination.
The sister companies have extended the summer 2021 season to Zante, Heraklion in Crete, Rhodes and Kefalonia from its UK airport bases. Jet2holidays is also offering a wider choice of hotels in these islands, alongside a range of deals.
Steve Heapy, chief executive of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “There continues to be enormous pent-up demand from British holidaymakers, who want nothing more than to get away to the sunshine and enjoy their well-deserved holidays.
“As always, we listen to what customers want and react accordingly, so that we can provide them with the holiday choices that they want. Extending the summer season to Greece means we are doing exactly that; giving customers more opportunity to get away and enjoy a much-needed holiday.”
Zante will see the most extra flights with 34 services from Birmingham, East Midlands, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, Manchester, Newcastle and Stansted, as the season is extended to the end of October.
There will be 20 new flights to Rhodes from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Birmingham, East Midlands, Leeds Bradford, Manchester, Newcastle and Stansted as the season runs to mid-November.
Heraklion in Crete will see almost 20 new flights up to 9 November from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Birmingham, East Midlands, Leeds Bradford, Manchester, Newcastle and Stansted.
Kefalonia will also benefit from extra flights from Glasgow, Birmingham, East Midlands, Leeds Bradford and Manchester as the season is extended to mid-October.
Heapy added: “We will be continuing to respond to the demand so that when travel restarts, we can take customers from our rainy islands to their favourite holiday hotspots.”
