Jet2.com and Jet2holidays are recommencing flights and holidays to Antalya and Dalaman on September 23, as the award-winning airline and tour operator responds quickly to demand for holidays in the Turkish sunshine.
Following the easing of international travel restrictions and the removal of Turkey from the Red List, the award-winning airline and tour operator has been quick to restart flights and holidays to Antalya and Dalaman.
Busy flights are scheduled to depart from Belfast International, Birmingham, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, London Stansted, Manchester, and Newcastle Airports, as customers make the most of being able to enjoy some Turkish sunshine for the first time in a year. In further good news, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays will launch services to the two popular Turkish destinations from 24th September from their new base, Bristol Airport.
With over 70 weekly flights to Dalaman and Antalya available for Summer 21, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays are responding to huge demand and are offering customers and independent travel agents plenty of choice and flexibility when it comes to getting some much-needed Turkish sunshine. The companies are operating to Antalya from all ten bases throughout the Winter season too and a breakdown of the Jet2.com and Jet2holidays programme to Turkey is included at the end of the release.
On the back of last week’s travel update, Jet2holidays, the UK’s leading tour operator to destinations in the Mediterranean and Canary Islands, together with leisure airline, Jet2.com reported an increase in bookings of more than 1,000% to Turkey as holidaymakers flocked to book holidays to the popular hotspot once again. The addition of Turkey to the flying programme means that the companies are operating to more than 40 destinations.
As well as booking and travelling on award-winning flights and ATOL protected package holidays to over 40 destinations, customers can get to experience and enjoy the company’s VIP customer service which has seen Jet2.com and Jet2holidays win high-profile accolades before and during the pandemic, such as Which? Recommended Provider and TripAdvisor’s Best Airline – UK and Top 10 Airlines of the World.
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, free child places and ATOL protection with the UK’s largest tour operator to destinations in the Mediterranean and Canary Islands, Jet2holidays. As well as a choice of thousands of 2-5 star hotels through Jet2holidays, customers can take advantage of Free Child Places which are still available for some late summer sun.
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.
