  • Award-winning airline and tour operator demonstrates commitment by putting on winter flights and city breaks to Athens for the first time
  • Launch of Winter 22/23 services to Athens, follows the companies’ inaugural flights to the capital last week 

Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks have announced the launch of winter services to Athens for the first time from two UK bases, demonstrating the companies’ continued commitment to the capital. 

The addition of Athens as a brand-new destination for Winter 22/23 comes in response to strong demand for flights and city breaks to the capital from UK holidaymakers and will see the leading leisure airline and package holiday specialist operate four weekly flights from the UK. 

Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks will operate to Athens for Winter 22/23 from Manchester and Birmingham Airports, giving UK holidaymakers access to Greece’s capital during winter for the first time. It also gives locals fantastic access to the city of Manchester and the North West of England, as well as Birmingham and the Midlands region.

Today’s announcement follows the launch of flights and city breaks to Athens for Summer 22, with inaugural flights arriving into Athens last week.

The full breakdown of the Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks’ Winter 22/23 programme to Athens is as follows: 

Birmingham 

  • Up to two weekly services (Thursday and Sunday) continuing from Summer 22 to 27th November and from 16th February onwards through to Summer 23.

Manchester 

  • Up to two weekly services (Thursday and Sunday) continuing from Summer 22 to 27th November and from 16th February onwards through to Summer 23.

Athens is the beating heart of Greece and offers UK holidaymakers the chance to go history hunting, be stunned by world-renowned sights such as the Acropolis, or enjoy the fantastic nightlife. Jet2CityBreaks has a range of 3-5* hotels available in Athens City, in neighbourhoods such as Koukaki, Monastiraki and Plaka. These locations provide easy access to the best sites, whether that be the flea market in Monastiraki, the nightlife in Psiri, the ‘Old Town’ of Plaka, the world-famous Acropolis or Syntagma Square.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “Our Athens programme has got off to a great start and we know there will be a lot of demand for flights and breaks this winter too from UK customers and independent travel agents. As always, we want to deliver what our customers and independent travel agent partners want, so we are delighted to announce the launch of flights and city breaks to Athens for Winter 22/23 for the first time. We are very excited to be launching this new route for Winter 22/23 and demonstrating our ongoing commitment to this fantastic city, whilst offering holidaymakers more choice and flexibility.”
