We have expanded our presence in Mykonos for Summer 20, by adding new properties to our portfolio of hotels just weeks after announcing our operation to the island. It takes the total number of hotels now on sale to more than 30, giving holidaymakers even greater choice.

In November last year, we announced that we will operate to the Cycladic island from Manchester and London Stansted Airports for the first time this summer. With the addition of more hotel stock, it means holidaymakers have a wider selection of 2+ star to 5-star accommodation to choose from in the whitewashed villages of Agios Ioannis, Mykonos Town, Psarrou, Panormos, Tourlos and Platis Yialos. Today’s expansion means we will also operate award-winning holidays to Elia Beach and Ornos.

Offering laid-back beach days and chilled nights, the beautiful Elia Beach reflects traditional Greece with whitewashed houses cascading down the mountainside and rugged coastline. Holidaymakers can select from four 5-star accommodation options in this resort, as a result of today’s expansion.

Located in the south of the island, Ornos is a small fishing village and offers a family-friendly beach, as well as lots of restaurants. Holidaymakers can stay at the 4+ star Kivotos Mykonos while exploring this bustling resort.

Two hotels have also been added from our VIBE by Jet2holidays collection, a new product targeting holidaymakers with a millennial mindset. These include the Myconian Korali and Myconian Kyma, both of which are 5-star hotels and part of the Chilled Vibe category, encompassing top-of-the-range facilities and impressive settings.

A further five properties have been added from our Luxe collection including the Myconian Naia in Mykonos Town, Myconian Utopia and Myconian Avaton in Elia Beach, Myconian Ambassador in Platis Yialos, and Mykonos Grand Resort & Spa in Agios Ioannis. Made up of 4 and 5-star properties in exclusive locations, our Luxe collection hotels have stylish décor, great service and fine dining restaurants.

We will operate two weekly services to Mykonos from Manchester Airport, with a Sunday service operating from 24th May through to 1st November, and a Thursday service operating from 16th July through to 24th September.

From London Stansted Airport, we will operate up to two weekly services, with a weekly Sunday service running from 24th May through to 1st November, as well as a weekly Tuesday service operating from 26th May to 22nd September.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “We are delighted to have grown our presence in Mykonos by adding more hotel stock and increasing the choice of accommodation to holidaymakers looking to enjoy a getaway to the Cycladic island. With its picture-perfect beaches, whitewashed villages and vibrant party scene, combined with an even greater selection of hotels, we are confident that the island will be hugely popular with holidaymakers looking for a stunning escape this summer.”
