Jet2 makes itself at home in the villa market

Jet2 has launched the latest expansion to its holiday business, branching out into villas for the first time with its Jet2Villas brand.

It has launched a dedicated offering and customised searches of properties across destinations including the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands, mainland Spain, Portugal, Croatia, Greece, Cyprus and Turkey.

Detached individual sites with self-catering facilities and private pools, villa complexes providing a community-style offering and resort-style sites which allow access to hotel facilities and amenities.

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays said: “With the launch of Jet2Villas we are now giving customers even more choice, value and flexibility for their holidays.

“With hundreds of villas now on sale, customers can look forward to diving into their own private pool, with the added satisfaction that they have all the package benefits of Jet2holidays included, as well as car hire too.

“The launch of Jet2Villas is a very exciting new chapter for us. We are very confident that the freedom of a villa holiday combined with the perks of a Jet2holidays package will make Jet2Villas a huge success with customers.”

In April, Jet2 parent Leeds-based Dart Group said that it expected profits to outstrip expectations after a year of growth and “lower than expected” winter losses, after creating hundreds of jobs across the UK in the process.
