Hot on the heels of announcing that we will restart flights and holidays to Faro (Algarve) on Monday 24th August, we are already responding to the strong customer demand by increasing capacity.

We will operate multiple weekly services to Faro from all nine of our UK bases this summer, and on top of that we have today added more flights and thousands of extra seats across Birmingham, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, London Stansted and Manchester Airports.

The reintroduction of Faro to our programme means that we will operate to two quarantine-free destinations in Portugal this summer. We are already operating to Madeira (Funchal) from Birmingham, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Leeds Bradford, Manchester and London Stansted, with the destination also proving very popular with holidaymakers who want to enjoy some much-needed sunshine and escape from the gloom.

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays said: “Customers are responding to the welcome change in government advice by booking their much-needed holidays in the Portuguese sunshine, and we are responding to that by adding more flights and seats. We want our customers to enjoy their well-deserved holidays, and our decision to act quickly and add even more capacity to Faro ensures they will have plenty of choice.

“With flights and holidays operating to Faro, in addition to Madeira, we are thrilled to be offering customers two fantastic options in Portugal when they’re looking to book their well-deserved holiday away from the gloom. With a fantastic choice of flights and holidays, not to mention fantastic deals and free child places available, those looking to get away can take advantage of great choice and value.

“We have been busy looking after customers and independent travel agents during these uncertain times. As a result of this, customers know they can trust us deliver and that’s our absolute focus for everyone travelling with us – delivering our award-winning customer service and package holidays you can trust.”
