JetsGo Holidays launches summer sun services from Derry to Majorca
CITY of Derry Airport has confirmed it is launching new route to Majorca next summer.
Operated by JetsGo Holidays, the first flights to the largest of the Balearic islands will depart in early June, and they will continue each Friday until the end of August.
And the company expects there to be "strong interest" in the service as people plan their getaways to the Med next year.
JetsGo holiday packages offer a range of options, from self-catering to all-inclusive hotel stays. Prices include flights, luggage and transfers, with a deposit of only £75 per person.
City of Derry airport managing director Steve Frazer said: “We've been working hard to expand our destination offer and are thrilled to be working with JetsGo Holidays to offer this new Majorca holiday service.
“There has been a clear demand for a summer sun service in recent years, and the majority of people opting for a staycation this year have expressed a real desire to get something planned for summer 2021.”
JetsGo boss Daniel Reilly said: “We've had such strong demand from the Northern Ireland market over the past few years for holidays to Spain that it made sense for us to offer a direct flight from City of Derry to complement our Belfast service.
“Derry offers an easy and convenient start to a holiday for everyone living in this part of the country. We have a range of competitively-priced package deals available with family friendly flight times, all bookable with a low deposit, giving customers something to look forward to next year.”
On the current travel climate he added: “The last number of months have been a hugely challenging time for the travel and tourism industry across Northern Ireland but we are hopeful this news signifies brighter times ahead.”
