Jet2.com to fly from Glasgow to Izmir, Turkey
Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have announced further details of its Summer 19 programme, with the launch of two new destinations for the airline from Glasgow Airport - Bourgas (Bulgaria) and Izmir (Turkey).
The announcement follows the recent launch of new routes to Kos and Naples and means a total of 33 destinations on sale from Glasgow Airport, a total of 950,000 seats which represents 11% capacity growth.
Izmir, Turkey, has been added in response to the huge demand for great value package holidays to Turkey. With over 9,000 seats and weekly services every Thursday, holidaymakers have plenty of choice when it comes to accessing popular family friendly resorts on the west coast of Turkey such as Kusadasi, Cesme, Ozdere and Seferihisar.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said, "Turkey continues to see huge demand, so we are opening up more resorts on the west coast of this fantastic country, by adding flights and holidays to Izmir. We are hugely excited about Summer 19 when we will have thousands of 2-5-star hotels and a fleet of aircraft full of happy holidaymakers enjoying the VIP customer service that Jet2.com and Jet2holidays delivers.”
Glasgow Airport’s commercial director Francois Bourienne said, “We are thrilled to add the brand new Izmir route to our busy destination list. This stunning coastal destination based on the Aegean coast is Turkey’s third largest metropolitan area, so it’s perfect for both city breaks and beach holidays".
