DUE to the overwhelming demand for its dedicated Christmas market trips, Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks has announced that its popular breaks are on sale earlier than ever, with TWO dedicated Christmas market trips to Prague and Vienna from Belfast International Airport next winter.
Following a completely sold-out programme this year, dedicated weekend trips flying to two of Europe’s most stunning winter destinations are on sale now, six months earlier than ever before. Each two-night break departs on a Friday and returns on a Sunday, making Prague and Vienna two perfect weekend getaways for people in Northern Ireland.
Customers departing from Belfast International Airport can take their pick from flights heading to Vienna on November 30th and Prague on December 7th 2018.
Flight options are available from £179 return or customers can book their flight and hotel together with Jet2CityBreaks from £329, secured now for a low £60 per person deposit.
The announcement comes less than a month after Jet2.com and Jet2holidays announced its biggest ever flights and holidays programme for Winter 18/19 from Belfast International Airport, with over 110,000 seats on sale, ONE BRAND NEW route to Madeira and larger aircraft added to the fleet to support a whopping 17% increase in capacity.
Steve Heapy, CEO, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “In the spirit of Christmas, we are launching a fantastic programme of dedicated Christmas market trips from Belfast International Airport. Last year these breaks sold out completely, so we have put them on sale earlier than ever before, giving customers more chance than ever to visit some of Europe’s best winter wonderlands in Vienna and Prague.”
Graham Keddie, Managing Director at Belfast International Airport, said: “Once more Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks are taking the lead in providing popular direct service options to Northern Ireland consumers.
“Vienna and Prague are the perfect destinations for a visit to the Christmas Markets in the lead-up to the festive season. We are certain, like this year, that these trips will prove extremely popular.”
Christmas Markets wrapped up:
The capital hosts over 20 Christmas markets, with the ‘December Market’, dating back to 1294, regarded by many as the forerunner to the Christmas Market.
A visit here is guaranteed to bring out everyone’s inner child with fairytale scenes, animals and the special Christkindl Express!
Prague – A Christmas Market in Prague is an exceptional experience and takes place in the Old Town Square and in Wenceslas Square – named after the festive ‘Good King’.
There are several Christmas Markets in Prague, the main ones are found at Staromestské námestí (Old Town Square) and at Wenceslas Square, with a smaller market at Christmas Market námestí Míru.
Bringing you all the atmosphere of Central Europe in one easily explored city, the Czech capital joins the dots between ancient castles, Gothic churches and Soviet structures.
Add in Czech beer and Prague’s famously buzzing nightlife scene, and get ready to let the good times flow this Christmas.
