  • Ibiza – now daily services
  • Reus – now up to four weekly services

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays said: “This will be our biggest summer programme yet from Newcastle Airport, with more seats and hotels than ever through our award-winning airline and holiday operator. Such sustained growth is only possible by looking after our customers, which shows that our continued investment into offering great value package holidays and family friendly flights is working. By continuing to grow across all of our bases, including established ones such as Newcastle, this proves our formula is the right one.”

John Irving, Business Development Director at Newcastle Airport, said: “It’s fantastic to see and Jet2holidays announce their biggest ever programme from Newcastle with the addition of two exciting new destinations.

“Greece continues to be a firm favourite with our passengers thanks to its glorious sunshine and wonderful beaches, so the decision to add Halkidiki is sure to be well received.

“The addition of Bodrum is great news and a welcome return as this service has proved to be very popular in the past and is a clear indication of and Jet2holidays’ commitment to both the airport and the North East travelling public.”
