More flights and packages to Turkey’s Antalya airport, aimed mainly at golfers, have been added by Jet2holidays for March next year.

Extra departures to the Turkish destination from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle airports will operate in March 2022. Flights include carriage of up to 22kg of golf clubs for £1.

Jet2 describes the Antalya region as ‘a rising star in the golfing world’, with 14 courses in the resort of Belek. In recent years, the region has been a regular stopover for the European Tour, with the Turkish Airlines Open being one of the showpiece events towards the end of the season. 

Jet2 will run up to four weekly services to Antalya from Glasgow, and up to three a week from Edinburgh and Newcastle.

Steve Heapy, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays chief executive, said: “The stunning Antalya region is becoming more and more popular with all types of customer, from families and couples through to golfers. Holidaymakers can enjoy beaches, culture, waterparks and incredible cuisine for amazing value and the wide selection of world-class courses, complemented by stunning hotels, makes Antalya a golfing paradise too.

“When you factor in the glorious sunny weather on top of that, Antalya in March is a very attractive proposition which is why we are increasing capacity in response to demand.”
