Pack your bags Mancs as the beautiful city of Porto has been added as a new destination from Manchester Airport! Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks recently announced that they have brought forward the launch of their brand-new city destination of Porto to Summer 2024 from Manchester Airport – on the back of huge demand for city breaks and flights.
Back in November, the companies announced the launch of flights and city breaks to Porto for Summer 2025 from two of their UK airports – Birmingham and Manchester Airports. However, this programme has now been brought forward to this summer from Manchester Airport, with flights launching on July 4, 2024 until November 3, 2024.
Jet2.com and Jet2CityBreaks will operate two weekly services (Thursday and Sunday) giving customers earlier access to the famous Portuguese city, but will still operate the same flights and city breaks from Manchester Airports to Porto in Summer 2025. The launch of this brand-new destination gives holidaymakers access to northern Portugal’s biggest city, which offers everything from extensive history and sightseeing to delicious cuisine, buzzing nightlife, and relaxation. And plenty of beautiful tiles to marvel at!
Situated on the Douro River, Porto combines vibrant city life with beautiful beaches on Portugal’s coastline, meaning it is a suitable destination for couples, families, and groups of friends alike. Holidaymakers can get their culture fix by exploring world-class museums and galleries, stroll the labyrinthine of streets and hit the shops, or visit the beautiful beaches of Foz do Dour.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “Since announcing the launch of the brand-new city destination of Porto, we have experienced phenomenal demand. We always listen to what our customers and independent travel agent partners are telling us so we have acted quickly to bring forward the launch of Porto by a whole year, meaning flights and city breaks to Porto are now available from Manchester Airport for Summer 24. As the largest operator of European city breaks this expands our programme even further, and we know this news will be a huge hit with customers looking to travel to this superb city.”
Flights from Manchester to Porto will launch on July 4, 2024 and run until November 3, 2024.
