It said the “expansion comes in response to demand from holidaymakers” looking for late summer flights and holidays, with the sale including 14 destinations from Glasgow Airport and ten from Edinburgh Airport.
The company said it includes sunshine favourites in mainland Spain, the Canaries, the Balearics, Portugal, Turkey, Croatia, and Greece from across eight UK airports.
It said that with customers and independent travel agents looking to book or travel later in the summer season, the new flights have been added between late September and early November 2024, and “provide even more choice for late summer”.
The extra capacity is on sale from eight UK airports: Belfast International, Birmingham, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, Manchester and Newcastle International Airports.
The additional flights and holidays on sale include the Edinburgh Airport expansion to ten destinations with extra services to Corfu, Dubrovnik, Dalaman, Kos, Palma (Majorca) and Rhodes in October, Malaga and Faro (Algarve) in October and November, and Alicante and Bodrum in November.
Glasgow Airport will see additional services to Menorca, Palma (Majorca), Reus, Tenerife, Izmir, Alicante, Bodrum, Dalaman, Crete (Heraklion), Ibiza, Rhodes and Zante in October, Malaga in October and November, and Faro (Algarve) in November.
Steve Heapy, chief executive of Jet.com and Jet2holidays, said: “We are seeing strong and sustained demand for summer 24 across the board, with the late summer season proving very popular.
“As the UK’s largest tour operator, we have reacted quickly to that demand by adding extra capacity from September through to November for summer 24. With even more choice and flexibility to 24 sun destinations, we are giving holidaymakers plenty of opportunity to get away on our award-winning flights and holidays.
“By adding additional services to a host of destinations for the late summer season, we are giving customers exactly what they want, and we know just how much they will be jumping at the chance to get away and enjoy a last slice of summer sun.”
