Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “People missed out on the opportunity to visit Europe’s most magical Christmas market destinations last year, so we’re delighted that these popular trips are back again for 2021. We’re very excited about the return of the programme and we know customers will be equally excited to see the Christmas markets well and truly back. With this fantastic programme of destinations, flights, and festive trips on sale from Birmingham Airport, customers and independent travel agents can choose from the best of Europe’s Christmas markets once again this year and add a sprinkle of magic to any Christmas celebration.”
Tom Screen, Aviation Director of Birmingham Airport said: “Since we have entered 2021 many of our customers have been eager to book trips away, given that 2020 was not a great year for holidays abroad. With the Government’s roadmap being announced just last week, we have already seen bookings for 2021 increase with customers having more clarification on organising holidays abroad. Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have again listened to their customers by offering these popular Christmas Market destinations for 2021/2022. With Jet2.com and Jet2holidays customers can be assured of excellent customer service and the reassurance of an ATOL protected holiday.”
