Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks, the UK-based leisure airline and operator of European city breaks, have announced the addition of Gdansk, Poland, as a brand-new Christmas Market destination for the Winter 24/25 season.

With two weekly services available on Mondays and Fridays during this period, customers and independent travel agents will have ample choice and flexibility to enjoy an authentic festive experience in the charming Polish city.

Renowned for its picturesque Christmas Market, Gdansk’s Targ Weglowy area transforms into a winter wonderland, offering fairy tale illuminations, fairground attractions, a food zone, handmade gifts, local delicacies, and live artistic events. With a flight time of just over two hours, Gdansk provides a compact cityscape steeped in history, making it an ideal destination for immersive festive experiences and cultural exploration.

Gdansk is a fantastic Christmas Market destination, and we are expecting these new flights and city breaks to be extremely popular.’

With Gdansk joining seven other festive destinations – Berlin, Budapest, Cologne, Copenhagen, Krakow, Prague, and Vienna – across eleven UK airports, the Winter 24/25 Christmas Markets programme boasts its widest selection yet.
