More than 11,000 extra seats have been laid on by Jet2.com and Jet2holidays by extending the summer 2024 season to Crete and Rhodes until November.
More flights will operate to the two Greek islands from nine UK airports.
The move comes in response to strong demand and came as hoteliers in Rhodes sought to extend this summer’s season until November following disruption by wildfires.
The additional seats will be available to Heraklion on Crete and Rhodes from Belfast International, Birmingham, Bristol, East Midlands, Leeds-Bradford, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle International and Stansted airports.
Jet2 and ~Jet2holidays chief executive Steve Heapy said: “There continues to be enormous demand for summer ’24 from British holidaymakers, who want nothing more than to get away to the sunshine and enjoy their well-deserved holidays.
“As always, we listen to what customers are saying and react accordingly, so that we can provide them with the holiday choices that they want.
“Extending the season to these two popular Greek destinations means we are doing exactly that; giving customers more opportunity to get away and enjoy a much-needed holiday later in the season.
“As a result of the assurance that customers get from our award-winning flights and Atol protected package holidays, we will be continuing to respond to the demand we are seeing, so that we can take even more customers from our rainy islands to their favourite holiday hotspots.”
