Jet2 expands holiday deals from Manchester Airport to popular sunny European city

by Staff

Jet2 has expanded its holiday packages from Manchester Airport to Porto this summer following a strong demand from holidaymakers. It comes after the airline announced in January that it was bringing the launch date forward for the new route from Manchester to the Portuguese city.

Holidaymakers can now book onto Jet2CityBreaks Discover More packages to Porto, which cater to those looking for a ‘discovery-based experience holiday’. The packages from Manchester Airport, which are now on sale for this summer and the 2025 season, include an ‘enchanting’ Douro Valley wine tour.

The full day wine tour features a visit to an estate port wine producer where holidaymakers will be able to savour the flavours of three local wines. Then holidaymakers will move on to Quinta port wine producer for lunch before exploring the vineyards and enjoying a second wine tasting, and finally rounding off the day with a leisurely Rabelo boat cruise in Pinhão.

Flights from Manchester to Porto will begin on July 4 this summer, with Jet2 and Jet2CityBreaks operating two weekly services, on Thursday and Sunday from then until November 3. Flights will then resume in summer 2025.

A popular citybreak destination, Porto is one of Europe’s most popular city break destinations thanks to its rich history, beautiful buildings, museums, shops and a buzzing nightlife. Situated on the Douro River, it’s the largest city in northern Portugal and combines a vibrant city life with easy access to breaches.

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays, said: “We are delighted to be announcing even more good news for our Porto programme and expanding our Discover More packages to the popular city break destination. We are seeing more customers wanting to experience it all on their holidays, whether that is adventure, culture, history or sightseeing, so this expansion of our Discover More collection is in direct response to that demand.

“Since putting flights and city breaks on sale to Porto from Birmingham and Manchester Airports, we have received a phenomenal response and have reacted quickly to expand the programme and give customers what they want. We are confident that our Discover More packages to this superb city will be very popular, as people look to get more from their getaway while taking advantage of all the award-winning benefits of booking a Jet2CityBreaks package.”
