February 12th 2020: Jet2.com and Jet2holidays is offering customers a bumper choice of flights and holidays from Belfast International Airport in Summer 21, thanks to the launch of an expanded summer programme from the base today.
The leading leisure airline and package holiday specialist has put its award-winning flights and holidays on sale for Summer 21 from Belfast International earlier than ever, meaning customers and independent travel agents can book early. The huge summer programme includes BRAND NEW and EXCLUSIVE Larnaca (Cyprus) and almost 575,000 seats on sale in total, representing a capacity increase of 7%.
The expanded programme means that Jet2.com and Jet2holidays is offering customers in Northern Ireland more choice and flexibility, when it comes to reaching their favourite summer hotspots such as the Canaries, Balearics, Spain, Greece, Turkey and Cyprus.
With multiple weekly flights to many of these destinations, holidaymakers can enjoy complete flexibility over how long they choose to holiday for – a move which Jet2holidays pioneered ten years ago so that customers can choose holidays of any duration to suit their budgets and needs.

With stellar beaches, ancient ruins and party hotspots on its shores, Larnaca holidays have something for everyone, whether it’s a family holiday, a couples holiday, a villa holiday with Jet2Villas, or a group holiday for millennials booked through VIBE by Jet2holidays.
