Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have announced a scorching Summer Sun programme for 2023 from Birmingham Airport, with customers and independent travel agents able to choose from a fantastic choice of 43 hotspots.
With summer sun in demand, the UK’s leading tour operator to many leisure destinations across the Mediterranean and Canary Islands has put its programme on sale earlier than ever before. This gives customers the opportunity to get that well-deserved summer break locked into the diary well in advance.
The exciting programme gives customers and independent travel agents fantastic choice and flexibility when it comes to their favourite summer destinations in the Canaries, Balearics, Spain, Greece, Turkey, Italy, Cyprus, Croatia, and Portugal.
With Jet2.com and Jet2holidays the leading airline and tour operator to many leisure destinations, the companies are offering a huge and unrivalled choice, with almost 200 weekly flights to sunshine destinations during peak times. The programme includes up to 31 weekly flights to the Canary Islands, up to 30 weekly flights to the Balearic Islands, up to 39 weekly flights to 12 Greek destinations and up to 26 weekly flights to Turkey during peak times.
The company will be making further Summer 23 announcements over the coming weeks, including the launch of its leisure city destinations for Summer 23.
In recent weeks, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have reported the unlocking of enormous pent-up demand from holidaymakers on the back of travel restrictions easing. The reassurance of an ATOL protected package holiday is also proving to be popular with customers, as is the assurance of booking through a reputable provider that has looked after customers during the pandemic.
Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have been widely praised and commended for their handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, including swiftly and smoothly refunding over £1.4bn to customers who have had their flights or holidays cancelled. Most recently, both companies were once again awarded with Which? Recommended Provider status for the way they have looked after customers and independent travel agents. The Institute of Customer Service recently ranked Jet2holidays as the best UK tour operator and Jet2.com as the best UK airline for providing customer service. Jet2.com and Jet2holidays were also ranked as the Best Travel Firms for providing refunds according to a survey of respondents by Money Saving Expert, and the UK Civil Aviation Authority has recognised Jet2.com as the only UK airline to provide prompt refunds.
