We have today announced that we will operate to Lisbon for the first time, with flights, city breaks and holidays going on sale from Manchester and Birmingham Airports from April 20, perfectly timed for the Easter holidays.

As well as enjoying award-winning flights and holidays, customers can also enjoy a city break to the stunning capital city of Portugal with Jet2CityBreaks. Regularly voted as one of the most popular and best value city breaks, Lisbon offers everything for explorers including ancient ruins, white-domed cathedrals and gastronomic delights around every corner.

We will launch flights, holidays and city breaks to the Portuguese capital from April 2020, and two weekly flights are now on sale from both bases.

We will operate Thursday and Sunday services from Manchester Airport and Monday and Friday services from Birmingham Airport, giving customers great choice and flexibility, whether it’s a long weekend, a week or longer.

The launch follows demand from holidaymakers looking for a city break where they can explore Lisbon’s rich history, buzzing nightlife and cultural delights, as well as those looking to enjoy a holiday to one of its coastal resorts with Cascais, Estoril and Sintra all easily accessible from Lisbon.

Cascais is a traditional and charming Portuguese fishing town with a trio of golden bays, while the town of Estoril on the Portuguese Riviera is famous for its glitzy casino and palm-fringed landscaped gardens. Those looking for extravagant palaces, rippling mountains and opulent mansions can head to the small city of Sintra, which has UNESCO World Heritage status and is home to beautiful parks, castles, and buildings like Pena Palace, Castelo do Mouros and the Quinta de Regaleira.

The announcement means that holidaymakers can choose from a flight-only with Jet2.com, a Real Package HolidayTM with Jet2holidays, or a city break with Jet2CityBreaks while enjoying award-winning benefits and customer service.

A VIP customer service, flights with Jet2.com, transfers to and from the airport, a choice of 2-5 star hotels, Free Child places and 22kg baggage allowance, all for a low £60 per person deposit, are included when booking a Real Package HolidayTM with Jet2holidays.

We wrap it all up in one with Jet2CityBreaks offering a great choice of 2-5 star accommodation, friendly flight times, ATOL Protection, FREE 10kg hand luggage and FREE 22kg hold baggage.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “We are delighted to be launching flights, holidays and city breaks to Portugal’s stunning capital of Lisbon for the first time from Manchester and Birmingham Airports. Offering the best of both worlds, holidaymakers can explore the charismatic and vibrant city, or head to one of many coastal resorts.

 

“With two weekly flights giving customers all the flexibility to suit their budgets and needs, combined with our VIP customer service, we’re sure that Lisbon and its surrounding coastal resorts will prove extremely popular with holidaymakers.”
