Oia, Santorini

‘The world-famous sunset at Oia’


Jet2 explained that the addition of these new services, which run from July 21 to September 1, 2024, along with three other existing services (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday), means that there are four weekly services on sale to Santorini during Summer 24.

The airline said: “The new services are perfectly timed for newlyweds who have tied the knot on a Saturday and are looking to head off on their honeymoon immediately after the big day.

“Couples and families can also take advantage of the additional flights and enjoy a week-long getaway or longer on the idyllic island.

“Whether holidaymakers are looking to soak up the breathtaking views along the caldera, see the world-famous sunset at Oia, enjoy the local vineyards, or take in one of a number of key archaeological sites, such as ancient Akrotiri, a Minoan settlement preserved under volcanic ash, the picture-perfect island offers it all.”

CEO of and Jet2holiday Steve Heapy commented: “Demand from customers and independent travel agents in the region is telling us that flights and holidays to Greece are very much in demand for Summer 24.

“As ever, we have responded quickly to that demand by adding extra services to Santorini from Manchester Airport, giving customers even more choice when it comes to visiting this bucket list destination.

“With its romantic sunsets and stunning scenery, Santorini is a magical destination for newlyweds, couples and families who are looking to enjoy a memorable holiday in the Greek sunshine.

“The appeal of Santorini, combined with our Free Child Place holidays and fantastic sale, means we are confident that these new services will prove popular with local holidaymakers.”

In Summer 2024, and Jet2holidays will operate to a total of 14 Greek destinations


Visitors to Santorini should check out Santo Winery, which is home to a modern winery, tomato processing factory and a wine tourism centre.

Or, take in the beauty of Santorini on the hiking trail from Fira to Oia. One tourist told Tripadvisor: “The hike from Fira to Oia was my favourite thing we did in Greece.”

However, they did warn that it was a challenging walk because it is “long but with not much shade”.

The Santorini announcement comes as Jet2 announced seven “brand new” flight routes to holiday hotspots in Greece.

In Summer 2024, and Jet2holidays will operate to a total of 14 Greek destinations. Athens, Corfu, Crete (Chania), Crete (Heraklion), Kalamata (Peloponnese), Kefalonia, Kos, Lesvos, Preveza, Rhodes, Santorini, Skiathos, Halkidiki and Zante are all available to British holidaymakers.
