We are delighted to announce TWO BRAND NEW DESTINATIONS for Summer 20, with flights and holidays to Zadar (Croatia) and Preveza (Greece) going on sale today.

From May through to early November, we will operate to Preveza in Greece from three of our UK bases – Birmingham, London Stansted and Manchester – with four weekly flights and more than 35,000 seats on sale to this stunning destination in total.

The launch of brand new Preveza gives holidaymakers access to the Epirus region, which offers holidaymakers everything from 60km of beautiful beaches to enchanting history and exciting nightlife. Linked to the Greek mainland by Greece’s first undersea tunnel, this charming region opens up sensational seaside destinations you see on picturesque postcards including Parga, a coastal town surrounded by stunning islands and beaches, as well as Lefkas which includes traditional Greek resorts such as Nidri, Nikiana, Lygia and Agios Nikitas.

The addition of Preveza is our ninth destination in Greece, on top of the increasingly popular destinations of Corfu, Crete (Heraklion), Crete (Chania), Kefalonia, Kos, Rhodes, Thessaloniki and Zante. This popularity means and Jet2holidays will have over 1.3 million seats on sale across these nine Greek destinations in Summer 20, with over 150 flights operating every week during peak periods.

Our second new destination for Summer 20 is Zadar in Croatia, which is now on sale from London Stansted and Manchester Airports. With twice-weekly flights on sale from both bases from May through to early November, this represents more than 30,000 seats in total.

Zadar, located on the spectacular Dalmatian Coast, is one of Croatia’s most dynamic and exciting cities, and is a showcase of Roman and Venetian remnants, with religious buildings and churches, pretty promenades, lush lagoons and mighty monasteries. It is also gateway to a number of islands and some of Croatia’s most famous national parks, as well as resorts such as Petrcane, Biograd, Sibenik and Vodice. The addition of Zadar means that the company will operate to four destinations in Croatia in Summer 20, with existing services already operating to Dubrovnik, Split and Pula. This expansion to Croatia means over 400,000 seats on sale in Summer 20, with more than 50 flights operating every week during peak periods.

We are now on sale from six of our UK bases for Summer 20. In addition to the launch of these two brand new destinations (representing five new routes), there are another nine other new routes launching for Summer 20 across these six bases. These are:

BelfastInternational – brand new weekly service to Izmir in Turkey

Birmingham – brand new routes to Budapest (twice weekly services), Kefalonia (weekly service), Nice (three weekly services) and Murcia (twice weekly services)

Newcastle – brand new weekly service to Kos

London Stansted – brand new routes to Murcia (three weekly services), as well as Bergerac  and La Rochelle (both weekly services)

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays said: “The UK Government has confirmed that flights to our EU holiday destinations will continue just as last year, providing assurance that, whatever the outcome of Brexit, holidaymakers can continue to book holidays with confidence. On the back of that we are delighted to be announcing even more good news, with the launch of our biggest ever Summer programme for 2020 from these six UK bases, giving holidaymakers and independent travel agents even more choice and flexibility than ever before.

“With two brand new destinations in Preveza and Zadar, and 14 brand new routes across the six bases, this is a programme that we are very proud of. As the UK’s third largest airline and second largest tour operator, we look forward to taking more Britons away on their well-deserved holidays with our award-winning airline and package holiday business, and we are confident that the unique benefits that we deliver, such as ATOL protection, a low £60 per person deposit and our famously friendly VIP service, stands us in great stead for a successful Summer 20. We are not done yet, with even more sunshine going on sale from our other UK bases soon.”
