The Leeds-based airline Jet2 has announced that, from Summer 2019, they will be running flights from Leeds Bradford Airport to three new destinations; Bourgas in Bulgaria, Chania in Crete and Izmir in Turkey.
Earlier this month the airline announced that they would be adding extra flights to some of their more popular destinations such as the Canary Islands, and this along with today’s announcements means that Jet2 now flies to almost 50 destinations from Leeds Bradford Airport.
The airline, who have recently been named the number one airline in the UK, were helped by actor Stanislav Yevetski, best known for playing Viktor Krum in the Harry Potter films, to announce the new flights to his home country, Bulgaria, which are the first Jet2 flights to go to his country.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.Com, spoke of his excitement about the new routes. saying:
“We are extremely excited about our Summer 19 programme, which is our biggest and best to date. Three brand new destinations give holidaymakers even more choice with our award-winning airline and package holiday business.
“The addition of flights to Bourgas means we will operate to Bulgaria for the first time, and with resorts such as Sunny Beach on sale, we are expecting it be hugely popular with Britons. Greece continues to attract holidaymakers in huge numbers, and this new route Chania in Crete means that we will operate to eight Greek destinations in 2019. Finally, 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.”
Prices start at £69 to Bourgas and Izmir, and £75 to Chania.
