Jet2 restarts flights to Turkey
by Jessica Pook
Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have recommenced holidays to Turkey following its removal from the red list.
The company has responded to a last minute summer rush by adding over 70 flights and holidays to both Antalya and Dalaman.
It is the first time UK travellers have been able to holiday in Turkey in a year.
Flights are scheduled to depart from Belfast International, Birmingham, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, Stansted, Manchester, and Newcastle Airports.
Jet2.com and Jet2holidays will also launch services to the two Turkish destinations from September 24 from its new base, Bristol Airport.
Jet2.com reported an increase in bookings of more than 1,000% to Turkey following the latest Government announcement.
Services will operate to Antalya throughout the winter from all ten bases.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “The resumption of our award-winning flights and package holidays to Turkey is fantastic news for holidaymakers. We are delighted to be recommencing flights and holidays to Antalya and Dalaman and to be taking customers once again to these much-loved destinations.
“Customers have missed being able to visit Turkey this summer, so the reopening of the country has resulted in huge demand and comes just in time for holidaymakers to enjoy some late summer sun. We continue to look towards the future with real confidence, as customers make the most of being able to get away and enjoy some much-needed sunshine.”
