Announcements and Jet2holidays have extended the Summer 23 season to Verona by introducing more flights and holidays in October from Birmingham and Manchester Airports, in response to demand for late Summer sun. In addition to that, Jet2holidays has also announced that a bigger selection of hotels at the stunning Lake Garda are now available to book until late October, as holidaymakers flock to the famous location for their holidays. 

The leading leisure airline and UK’s leading tour operator to many destinations across the Mediterranean have responded to strong demand from customers looking to enjoy late Summer sun season holidays in Verona and Lake Garda by putting on additional flights to the region, with services now operating until 28th October from Birmingham and Manchester Airports

As a result of today’s expansion, and Jet2holidays have thousands more seats on sale to the destination, providing unrivalled choice and flexibility for customers and independent travel agents when it comes to booking or enjoying a holiday to Verona and Lake Garda this summer.

The addition of the new flights means and Jet2holidays will operate twice weekly services (Wednesday and Saturday) from Birmingham and Manchester Airports right through to the end of October 2023, with flights starting in early May. This schedule is ideal for holidaymakers, whether they are looking to enjoy a short break or something longer. It also gives holidaymakers the opportunity to book ahead and get the price of their October getaway holiday locked in now.

It comes following the positive response to Verona being added as a new destination from Newcastle International Airport for Summer 23 last year, and these latest additional services mean that and Jet2holidays are continuing to grow their presence in the region.  

As well as flights operating later in the season, an expanded choice of fantastic hotels in Lake Garda are available to book until late October for customers looking to grab a slice of late summer sun. In response to demand, Jet2holidays has recently added Aris Apartments, Villa Nicolli, Hotel Regina Adelaide, Hotel Serenella and Principe di Lazise to its portfolio of properties in Lake Garda, meaning the company now has over 50 2-5 star hotels in the region. 

Lying midway between Milan and Venice, Lake Garda offers a stunning setting for a holiday. A region of contrasts, it combines a majestic lake with rugged alpine vistas, waterfront towns and lush vineyards, making it the perfect destination. At the north end, holidaymakers can make the most of a variety of sporting activities, while further south they can enjoy exploring villages, wine tasting and al fresco dining. Resorts on sale include Bardolino, Malcesine, Sirmione, Limone, Desenzano, Riva, Gardone Riviera, San Felice del Benaco, Peschiera, Nago and Lazise, with Jet2holidays experiencing strong demand from customers looking to experience Lake Garda’s many charms.  

Famed as the setting for Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, Verona has romance around every corner and continues to be enormously popular too. Holidaymakers can get lost among the piazzas and tangle of medieval backstreets, take a starry-eyed stroll to visit Juliet’s ivy-clad balcony, people-watch at Piazza delle Erbe or indulge in some stylish shopping along Via Mazzini. 

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays, said: “We are delighted to be extending the Summer 23 season to Verona, and offering more flights and holidays to this popular destination until the end of October from Birmingham and Manchester Airports. Last year, we announced the addition of Newcastle International to Verona as a new route for Summer 23, and following the positive response to this, we have now extended our presence in the region even further. By working with the Italian government, hoteliers and partners, we are able to put on more flights and bring even more holidaymakers to Verona and Lake Garda. This is a region experiencing very strong demand and given the assurance that customers get from our award-winning flights and ATOL protected package holidays, we are very confident that these additional flights will prove extremely popular.”
