Jet2.com and Jet2holidays add four destinations to Winter Sun 22/23 programme from Belfast International Airport

Just weeks after announcing an exciting Winter Sun programme for 2022/23, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have added another four Winter Sun destinations from Belfast International Airport, in response to strong demand from customers and independent travel agents. 

The additional destinations going on sale for Winter 22/23 from Belfast include Malaga, Alicante, Faro (Algarve) and Majorca.  These popular Winter Sun destinations are in addition to the existing hotspots already on sale which include the Canary Islands (Tenerife, Lanzarote, Gran Canaria, and Fuerteventura) as well as Turkey (Antalya) and Cyprus (Paphos).

With up to 22 weekly flights currently available from Belfast International Airport for Winter 22/23, the leading leisure airline and package holiday specialist is offering customers and independent travel agents plenty of choice and flexibility when it comes to getting away next Winter.

The addition of these destinations, on top of those already on sale, means the UK’s leading tour operator to destinations across Europe, the Mediterranean and Canary Islands currently has a choice of ten Winter Sun destinations on sale for Winter 22/23 from Belfast International Airport.

With multiple weekly services to many of these destinations throughout the winter season from early-November through to the end of April, customers can book the duration of holiday that suits them. The full breakdown of the new Winter Sun destinations on sale is as follows:

  • Malaga (weekly services in April)
  • Alicante (up to two weekly services)
  • Faro (up to three weekly services in April)
  • Majorca (up to two weekly services in April)

As well as booking and travelling on award-winning flights and ATOL protected package holidays to these destinations, customers can get to experience and enjoy the company’s VIP customer service which has seen Jet2.com and Jet2holidays win high-profile accolades before and during the pandemic, such as Which? Recommended Provider and TripAdvisor’s Best Airline – UK and Top 10 Airlines of the World.

This VIP customer service includes friendly flight times and a generous 22kg baggage allowance through a flight-only booking with Jet2.com, which saw the airline win five accolades at the 2020 TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice® Awards for Airlines; or that very same VIP customer service, in-resort Customer Helpers, transfers, free child places and ATOL protection with the UK’s second largest tour operator, Jet2holidays. As well as a choice of thousands of 2-5 star hotels through Jet2holidays, customers can also enjoy all the benefits of a package holiday but with the added privacy of a villa holiday, by booking their winter sun with Jet2Villas.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “Just weeks after announcing a fantastic selection of winter sun destinations on sale for Winter 22/23 from Belfast International Airport, we are very pleased to be expanding our programme and adding even more sunshine hotspots. This expansion comes on the back of the great response we have seen from customers and independent travel agents looking to book their winter sunshine nice and early. Like we have experienced with the first destinations going on sale, we know these additional hotspots will be just as popular. Based on the response we have had to the programme, and with more holidaymakers wanting to book ahead, we are looking towards the future with enormous confidence when it comes to Winter 22/23.”
