Jet2holidays, the low cost package holiday expert, is launching a range of new package holidays to Brive (Dordogne) available to fly from Manchester in the summer of 2011.
This is bound to be a big hit with holiday makers and expatriates offering great access to the Dordogne valley. If that wasn’t enough, we will also be launching two new destinations from summer 2011 to Larnaca and Paphos in Cyprus which will be served by both Jet2.com and Jet2holidays.
Jet2.com will also be adding extra flights to cater for the increased demand for holidays to some of the North West’s most popular destinations including Venice, Pisa, Nice, Palma and Murcia giving holidaymakers increased flexibility and choice when booking next year’s holidays.
Unlocking the Beautiful Dordogne Region
There will be holidays to Brive flying out twice a week from May to September which will open up the beautiful Dordogne region to the North West’s holidaymakers. Sarlat is the region’s most famous old town, full of charming, winding medieval streets and just a few kilometres north of the River Dordogne.
The small village of Rocamadour, set on the side of a dramatic cliff, receives more than a million visitors a year as an important pilgrimage destination dating back over 1,000 years which is said to have healing powers. Lez Eyzies, in the UNESCO classified heritage site of the Vezere valley, is a perfect base from which to discover the many prehistoric caves, drawings and attractions which surround it.
Philip Meeson, boss of Jet2.com, said: “The North West has been one of our biggest growth areas in recent years and we have stuck to our commitment of offering flights from Jet2.com and packages through Jet2holidays to a wide range of destinations, some of which are not currently served by any other holiday company out of Manchester.”
