easyJet and easyJet holidays have launched new flights and holidays from Bristol Airport to the Greek islands of Mykonos and Santorini for this summer.
All flights and holidays are subject to market-leading flexible policies under its ‘Protection Promise’ which means that customers can book now for later this year with the confidence that if their plans change, so can their booking.
Flights to both new destinations will operate once a week throughout the summer, providing anyone travelling from the South West with a direct connection to the popular Greek resorts. The new route joins the existing easyJet routes from Bristol to Athens, Corfu, Crete, Kefalonia, Kos, Preveza, Rhodes and Zakynthos.
Dave Lees, CEO, Bristol Airport said: “We are delighted with easyJet’s announcement adding two new destinations from Bristol Airport to the Greek islands of Mykonos and Santorini and increasing capacity to Antalya and Dalaman in Turkey and the Greek island of Corfu for summer 2021.
“This further increases the choice of destinations and flight options available to passengers in the region choosing to fly from their local airport. This shows the confidence in the region and when the time is right and travel restrictions ease, Bristol Airport will be ready to provide the essential air connectivity, which is what our customers are telling us they want. We will continue to work with easyJet, enhancing and developing the route network for the future.”
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager, added: “We know that people want to travel as soon as they can and as soon as it is safe to do so and so we want to ensure they have even more destinations to choose from when making a booking for this summer.
“And while we remain optimistic for summer travel, given the successful roll out of the vaccination programme which will be an important trigger for the Government to begin to unwind some restrictions, our Protection Promise means that customers can book with confidence knowing that if they are unable to travel or their plans change so can their flights or holiday. And unlike other airlines we will offer customers refunds if they are impacted by a travel ban, even if their flight is not cancelled, which is industry leading.”
The airline has also added more seats on summer routes from Bristol to Turkey, with additional departures on Mondays to Antalya and on Tuesdays and Fridays to Dalaman as well as on Sundays to the Greek Island of Corfu.
