Jet2 returns to Turkey from today

Flights and holidays to Turkey are being restarted by and Jet2holidays today (Thursday) following the country being removed from red list travel restrictions.

Antalya and Dalaman are to be served from nine UK airports, followed by departures from Bristol on Friday.

The airline and operator has responded quickly to demand for holidays to Turkey with flights from Belfast International, Birmingham, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, Manchester, Newcastle and Stansted.

More than 70 weekly flights to the two destinations are available for the late summer period.

The company is also operating to Antalya from all ten bases throughout the winter.

Jet2 claimed an increase in bookings of more than 1,000% to Turkey on the back of last week’s government travel update.

Chief executive Steve Heapy said: “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.

“We continue to look towards the future with real confidence, as customers make the most of being able to get away and enjoy some much-needed sunshine.”
