Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks have added more flights and city breaks to Rome in Italy from Birmingham Airport in February 2022, in response to strong demand from rugby fans looking to head to the Italian city to watch the Six Nations Championship.
After a year of being unable to watch live sport, the leading leisure airline and UK’s largest operator of European city breaks, has stepped in to meet demand from rugby enthusiasts looking to see the England vs Italy match on 13th February 2022, by adding extra services and city breaks from Birmingham Airport to Rome for Winter 21/22. The additional flights and city breaks are perfectly timed for those wanting to experience the rugby tournament at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, with extra services added on Friday 11th and returning on Monday 14th February 2022.
The addition of the new services and city break packages means that Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks will operate two daily flights into Fiumicino Airport in Rome on these dates in February from Birmingham Airport. This gives fans even more opportunity to enjoy award-winning flights with Jet2.com and city breaks to the Italian city with JetCityBreaks and see the rugby match unfold.
As well as watching the match at one of the best stadium’s in Europe, customers can also make this fixture a fantastic weekend away and explore the many sights on offer in Italy’s capital known as the Eternal City.
