Jet2holidays, the UK’s second largest tour operator, on Friday announced that it will launch holidays for the first time to the Greek island of Skopelos in summer 2020.
According to the tour operator, the move follows demand from holidaymakers wanting access to the unspoilt island in the north Aegean Sea, best known for being the filming location for the first Mamma Mia film.
“We are delighted to be offering award-winning holidays for the first time to the beautiful island of Skopelos… ideal for families and couples looking for an authentic, off-the-beaten track Greek holiday,” Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said.
Holidaymakers will have access to Skopelos through six weekly flights to Skiathos to be operated by Jet2holidays in summer 2020 from May to September – three weekly services from Manchester (Wednesday, Friday and Sunday), twice weekly services from London Stansted (Wednesday and Saturday) and a weekly service from Birmingham (Wednesday).
This is the company’s latest expansion to Greece for Summer 2020 through its leisure airline Jet2.com, having already announced flights to 14 Greek destinations: Mykonos (new), Skiathos (new), Santorini (new), Preveza (new), Kalamata in the Peloponnese (new), Lesvos (new), Corfu, Crete (Heraklion and Chania), Kefalonia, Kos, Rhodes, Halkidiki and Zakynthos.
The tour operator’s travel packages will also include coach transfer from the airport to the Port of Skiathos and a private water taxi ferry to Skopelos.
Moreover, the package holiday specialist announced that it has put a selection of hotels on sale to Skopelos between May and September, with villas to be put on sale with Jet2Villas soon.
