Jet2holidays is expanding its offering to Greece for Summer 24 with the addition of a new destination – Symi – during its first summer of operating flights and holidays from Liverpool John Lennon Airport.
In response to high demand from Merseyside customers and independent travel agents looking to book a holiday to Greece, the UK’s largest tour operator has put Symion holidays on sale for next summer.
Holidaymakers will be able to fly to this new destination from Liverpool John Lennon Airport via Rhodes Airport between May 2nd and October 31st. Customers and independent travel agents have plenty of opportunities to book holidays to this satellite island off Rhodes, with up to two weekly services (Monday and Thursday) operating during peak periods by award-winning airline, Jet2.com.
Customers will receive accommodation in Rhodes for the first night of their vacation upon arrival at Rhodes Airport before continuing their journey to Symi the following day via ferry crossing, which takes approximately 1.5 hours. Customers will be transported from the port to their chosen accommodation once they arrive in Symi.
Symi is a Dodecanese island located in the south-east Aegean, just 24 miles north of Rhodes. It is ideal for holidaymakers who want to relax and soak up the slow pace of Greek life. It is known for its beaches, harbour at Symi Town, and is surrounded by colourful, authentic Greek houses tumbling down the hillside.
Jet2holidays is selling to three Symi resorts: Symi Town, Pedi, and Emporios, and is offering four hotels: Pedi Beach Hotel, Iapetos Village Hotel, Opera House Apartments, and Niriides Hotel & Apartments.
As a result of today’s announcement, Jet2holidays now offers an unrivalled selection of Greek destinations from Liverpool John Lennon Airport for Summer 24. From Liverpool John Lennon Airport, the airline will fly to five Greek destinations: Corfu, Crete (Heraklion), Kos, Rhodes, and Zante.
Jet2holidays will operate up to eight weekly services to Greece from Liverpool John Lennon Airport during peak periods, representing over 75,000 seats on sale and providing customers in Merseyside with fantastic flexibility when it comes to reaching the Greek sunshine next summer.
Customers flying to Symi can enjoy all of the benefits of booking a package holiday with Jet2holidays, such as VIP customer service, airport transfers, and ATOL protection, as well as friendly flight times and a generous 22kg baggage allowance with Jet2.com, for a low £60 per person booking deposit.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said:
“As the UK’s largest tour operator, our first Summer 24 programme from Liverpool John Lennon Airport is already jam-packed full of choice and flexibility and has proved incredibly popular. Given the strong demand we are seeing, we are delighted to be expanding our enormous programme even more and adding Symi to our Jet2holidays’ portfolio from the airport.
“Greece is proving to be a popular choice of holiday destination for next summer, so we have no doubt that this new addition will be much sought-after by customers and independent travel agents in Merseyside. As well as being able to access this island for the first time with Jet2holidays, holidaymakers will also be able to enjoy the many benefits of booking a package holiday with an award-winning airline and tour operator. It is for this reason, and our reputation of delivering a VIP customer service, that we are confident that our package holidays to Symi will be a huge success from Liverpool John Lennon Airport.”
Paul Winfield, Aviation Director at LJLA commented:
“It’s not long now before we see the start of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays’ operations from Liverpool at the end of March next year, with 20 destinations and four Jet2.com aircraft based here, so it’s even better to hear that the region’s holidaymakers have the opportunity to head off to another new destination with Jet2holidays and with the added convenience of being able to fly from Liverpool, enjoying our faster, easier, friendlier customer experience. The chance to go on holiday from Liverpool with Jet2holidays for the first time is clearly proving to be a big hit with travellers from across the North West and we look forward to welcoming passengers travelling to Symi along with all the other destinations that Jet2holidays feature from here.”
