For Summer 2024, Jet2holidays is introducing package holidays to two brand-new resorts in Dalaman – Kas and Kalkan.

Previously, these resorts were only available through Jet2Villas, but now they are part of Jet2holidays’ package holiday offerings.
Jet2 says that Kas and Kalkan, located on Turkiye’s stunning southwest coast, are renowned for their charming bougainvillea-covered stone houses, picturesque cobblestone streets, trendy beach clubs, authentic restaurants, and bustling traditional markets. These resorts offer a plethora of attractions, including Blue Flag beaches, ancient historical sites, and breathtaking natural scenery.
Customers booking a package holiday to Kas and Kalkan with Jet2holidays can take direct flights to Dalaman from all eleven of Jet2.com’s UK bases. Furthermore, transfers to and from Dalaman airport are included in the package. With up to 90 weekly flights to Dalaman during peak periods next summer, Jet2 says that travellers and independent agents have ample choice and flexibility when planning their getaway to these new Turkish resorts.
