Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2, plans to visit Greece on Monday, September 26, to discuss the UK leisure travel group’s strategy and 2023 flight program, which includes important additions for the market.
Following Jet2’s summer 2022 program which included flights to 15 Greek destinations (more than any other UK airline) without any cancellations in July or August (according to data from travel intelligence company OAG) and 1.2 million arriving seats – a capacity increase of almost 90 percent, Heapy plans to announce an even “bigger” program for summer 2023.
2023 flight program: New routes & plans for Athens
According to a source, Heapy will present Jet2’s largest ever program to Greece on sale, which will include three brand new routes (Bristol-Chania, East Midlands-Santorini and London Stansted-Athens); Athens becoming a year-round destination; Easter flights added to Rhodes; and increased frequency to destinations such as Corfu, Rhodes and Skiathos.
Heapy’s agenda for next week includes visits to Corfu, Zakynthos, Crete (Chania and Heraklion) Rhodes and Kos. During his stay on each island he will present the company’s strategy for 2023 and meet with hoteliers and local government representatives.
During these meetings, he will talk about Jet2’s confidence in the Greek market and how committed the company is to create and grow long-term mutually beneficial strategic relations with hotel partners.
It is reminded that Jet2 recently announced that it would increase the number of flights in 2023 to the South Aegean Islands it flies to, which include favorites like Rhodes, Mykonos and Santorini.
Jet2 runs leisure flights through Jet2.com and package holidays through its tour operator Jet2holidays.
