Jet2 and EasyJet are offering special discounts for holidaymakers planning to visit the Algarve this summer.
Passengers have until 9 May to save up to 20 per cent on EasyJet flights to and from the UK in June. These include the London Gatwick to Faro service, from £27.99.
In total, the low-cost airline is offering discounts for 100,000 seats on selected flights from 1 until 30 June 2023, available to book from today until 8am on Tuesday 9 May at easyJet.com or via the mobile app.
In March, EasyJet reopened its Faro base, with nine A320 aircraft (four based and five not-based) and total capacity of 2.1 million seats, a 15 per cent increase compared with 2022. Operating until the end of October, the base will connect Faro to key European destinations for leisure and business, including Barcelona, Berlin, Milan and Paris.
Meanwhile, Jet2holidays has launched a sale offering £50 off per person on all summer 2023 holidays, while Jet2.com is discounting summer flights by 10 per cent. To be applicable, bookings must be made by 15 May 2023 and travel has to be taken between now and 31 October 2023.
“As we approach our biggest ever summer,” said Jet2.com and Jet2holidays CEO Steve Heapy, “holidaymakers are jumping at the chance to book their flights and package holidays with us. We want to spread even more summer sunshine, so we are delighted to be launching this fantastic offer across our flights and holidays for summer 2023.
