Continued strong demand for holidays to Greece sees UK’s largest tour operator add Symi to Summer 24 portfolio from Bristol Airport
- Four properties across three resorts now available to book in Symi
- Greek expansion means customers and independent travel agents in the South West can book package holidays to this new destination for the first time next summer
Jet2holidays is further expanding its offering to Greece for Summer 24, with the addition of a new destination to its programme – Symi from Bristol Airport.
In response to enormous demand from customers and independent travel agents in the South West looking to book a holiday to Greece, the UK’s largest tour operator has put holidays to Symi on sale for next summer.
Holidaymakers will be able to access this new destination from Bristol Airport between 20th April and 30th October via Rhodes Airport. With up to four weekly services (Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday) operating during peak periods to Rhodes by award-winning airline, Jet2.com, customers and independent travel agents have plenty of opportunity to book holidays to this satellite island off Rhodes.
On arrival into Rhodes Airport, customers will receive accommodation in Rhodes for the first night of their holiday before continuing their journey to Symi the following day via ferry crossing, which takes approximately 1.5 hours. After arriving in Symi, customers will be transported from the port to their chosen accommodation.
Located in the south-east Aegean, just 24 miles north of Rhodes, Symi is part of the Dodecanese islands. Known for its beaches, harbour at Symi Town and surrounded by colourful, authentic Greek houses tumbling down the hillside, it is the perfect choice for holidaymakers who want to relax and soak up the slow pace of Greek life.
Jet2holidays is on sale to three resorts in Symi – Symi Town, Pedi and Emporios and is offering a choice of four hotels, including Pedi Beach Hotel, Iapetos Village Hotel, Opera House Apartments and Niriides Hotel & Apartments.
As a result of today’s announcement, Jet2holidays has an unrivalled choice of destinations on sale across Greece from Bristol Airport for Summer 24. The company will operate to ten destinations in Greece (Corfu, Crete (Chania), Crete (Heraklion), Kefalonia, Halkidiki, Kos, Preveza, Rhodes, Skiathos and Zante) from Bristol Airport.
In total, Jet2holidays will operate over 20 weekly services during peak periods to Greece from Bristol Airport, representing more than 200,000 seats on sale and giving customers in the South West fantastic flexibility when it comes to reaching the Greek sunshine next summer.
Customers travelling to Symi can take advantage of all the benefits of booking a package holiday with Jet2holidays, including VIP customer service, transfers to and from the airport and ATOL protection, along with friendly flight times and a generous 22kg baggage allowance with Jet2.com, all 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 Summer 24 programme is already jam-packed full of choice and flexibility. 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 Bristol 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 the South West. 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 Bristol Airport.”
