The famous Dordogne region is one of the most beautiful areas of France, and we have great news for holidaymakers wishing to experience its many charms.

The area features chateaux, medieval towns, unspoiled countryside, wine tasting, culinary delights and an array of outdoor activities. With that in mind, we are adding more routes and seats so that more holidaymakers can fly with us to the region’s airport, Bergerac. This expanded programme includes:

Birmingham Airport
A brand new route thanks to the introduction of weekly Saturday flights between May and September next summer. This means that almost 7,000 seats are on sale between Bergerac and Birmingham Airport for Summer 19.

Manchester Airport
We will start operating weekly Saturday flights from Manchester next month (May 26th), again with almost 7,000 seats on sale for both this and next summer.

Leeds Bradford Airport
We have operated flights to Bergerac from Leeds Bradford since 2010, and to mark ten years of this successful route, we are announcing an additional Tuesday service for Summer 19, meaning two weekly flights next summer.

Across the three bases, this means that we have over 22,000 Bergerac seats on sale for Summer 19, representing capacity growth of more than 80%.

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays said: “Bergerac is a destination that is continuing to enjoy more and more popularity with British holidaymakers, so we are delighted to be launching this brand new route from Birmingham, in addition to our popular routes from Manchester and Leeds Bradford. With more seats than ever to Bergerac on our award-winning airline than ever, we are looking forward to a successful 2019 programme.”

Emily James, Head of Marketing and Route Development said "All of us here in the Dordogne are extremely satisfied by this continual development with the friendly low fare airline, so much loved by our passengers, Our gates are open and our runway ready to welcome this 3rd route from the UK after Leeds and Manchester. This opening is a wonderful way to celebrate our 10th anniversary with!"
