Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, the UK-based travel and holiday company, has said that it will launch flights and holidays to Skiathos for Summer 20, the first time that it has operated to the Greek island.
Jet2 will operate to Skiathos from Birmingham, London Stansted and Manchester Airports between May and September. A favourite with British holidaymakers, the new service is in response to the demand from holidaymakers looking to explore the beautiful island, which features pristine beaches and traditional Greek resorts including Achladies, Kolios, Koukounaries, Skiathos Town, Troulos and Agia Paraskevi.
The company will operate five weekly flights to Skiathos in Summer 20, with twice weekly services from Manchester and London Stansted and weekly services from Birmingham. Skiathos is the fourth brand new destination for Summer 20, in addition to Preveza – Greece, Zadar -Croatia and Tivat -Montenegro.
With the new route, Jet2 will now operate to ten Greek destinations in Summer 20, its biggest ever programme to Greece. Jet2 also operates services to Corfu, Crete- Heraklion, Crete – Chania, Kefalonia, Kos, Rhodes, Halkidiki and Zante.
Steve Heapy, of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays CEO said: ‘Skiathos is a truly breath-taking destination, and its stunning beaches, coastline and scenery are a huge draw with holidaymakers. We are delighted to be launching our award-winning flights and holidays to the island, and we know that our VIP customer service will be a huge hit with people holidaying there.’
