Jet2 expands Edinburgh offering

Posted: 7th January 2021

32 sunshine destinations now available

Passengers will be able to choose from a total of 32 sunshine destinations with Jet2.com and Jet2holidays after the airline expanded its summer offering from Edinburgh Airport.

Three new Greek routes to Skiathos, Santorini and Preveza have been added for summer 2022, each with a weekly service. Weekly services to Izmir, Naples and Thessaloniki are also on offer.

A wide range of flights to popular destinations such as the Canaries, Balearics, Spain, Greece, Turkey and Portugal will also be available to people planning for that long-awaited summer holiday.

Flights are on sale now.

Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport said: “If all things go to plan with the vaccine, something we hope happens, then we know people will be incredibly excited to get away at the earliest opportunity and enjoy some sun and have that holiday they have been longing for.

“This improved and expanded schedule of 32 sunshine destinations from Jet2.com and Jet2 holidays will offer a range of choices for families looking for that beach holiday, couples looking to visit some of Europe’s most fantastic cities, and friends looking to enjoy the nightlife in some island towns. We hope it provides something to look forward to once we know people can travel safely.”

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said:

“After much uncertainty, the positive news about a vaccine coupled with a real desire to get away, means we are seeing strong demand from holidaymakers wanting to plan and book future holidays. As always, we respond to what our customers are telling us, so we have put Summer 22 on sale from Edinburgh Airport, meaning we’re on sale with our summer programme earlier than ever before.

“With 32 sunshine favourites on sale, the scale of the programme means there is plenty of choice and flexibility for customers and independent travel agents to choose from with our award-winning airline and tour operator. With more good news around the corner, we’re sure that our Summer 22 programme will be a huge hit with local holidaymakers looking to secure a much-needed holiday and give themselves something to look forward to.”
