JET2 is launching more flights to Turkey as demand continues to grow for the popular holiday destination.
The airline has added more than 60 new flights from the UK to resorts including Antalya, Bodrum, Dalaman and Izmur.

This means more than 12,000 seats available for Brits wanting a trip to Turkey.
The country is one of the few remaining destinations open to Brits without needing to quarantine on arrival or back in the UK.
Turkey is currently only enforcing health and temperature checks at the borders, with only positive coronavirus tests resulting in quarantine.
The country also remains a low risk for facing self-isolation measures from the UK government – the daily infection rate per 100,000 people is just 13.8, well below the government’s 20.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “It’s clear from the high demand we are seeing for holidays and flights to Turkey that customers are keen to get away this Summer 20 for a much-needed holiday.
“As usual, we have been quick to respond to that demand, giving our customers what they want by adding more seats and holidays on sale to this sunny hotspot.
“With fantastic deals and free child places available, on top of great choice and flexibility, there is no better time to take advantage of a welcome escape.”
Jet2 flights are expected to be cheaper than ever this winter, as Brits need to be encouraged to travel abroad, according to the airline boss.
Philip Meeson, executive chairman of Dart Group who owns the airline said: “Winter 20/21 forward bookings have yet to match our revised on-sale seat capacity, with customer bookings displaying a shorter lead time than in previous years.”
