Tropical island with crystal clear blue waters with a number of small sailing boats.


Jet2holidays has today announced the addition of Formentera in Spain to its Summer 24 programme from Belfast International airport, giving Irish holidaymakers the opportunity to experience laid-back luxury on this quaint Balearic island. 


The expansion means that Jet2holidays will operate to well over 550 beach and city resorts, across 60 destinations in Summer 24, from its 11 UK airports.


The UK’s largest tour operator has once again responded to demand from customers and independent travel agents by adding Formentera in Spain for Summer 24, with holidays operating from 16th May through to 5th October. With weekly Tuesday services available from Belfast International airport, packages with Jet2holidays include award-winning flights to Ibiza airport, 22kg baggage, free child places and transfers for only a £60 per person booking deposit.

Just 20km south of Ibiza, Formentera is a hop, skip and a jump away via a short transfer. Once arriving at Ibiza airport, customers will receive ferry tickets from the Jet2holidays Resort Customer Helper before taking a coach to Ibiza Town Port. The ferry operates every 30 minutes and coach transfers are also provided upon arrival in Formentera.  


The most southerly of the Balearic islands, Formentera is best-known for its untouched beaches and crystal clear waters. With resorts on offer including Platja de Migjornand Es Pujols, customers looking for experience-based holidays can enjoy water sports, snorkelling, diving and boat trips alongside bike and scooter hire. The salt flats offer relaxing, scenic cycling and at only 20km long and 2km wide at its narrowest point, Formentera boasts breath-taking views and deserted coves.

As well as giving customers the opportunity to enjoy a well-deserved summer holiday, the unspoilt island is a peaceful paradise and one of the most idyllic destinations in the Balearics.”


He added: “As well as experiencing strong demand for last-minute Summer 23 getaways, we are also seeing customers wanting to book ahead for next summer and the Balearics are proving popular. This expansion further strengthens our biggest ever summer programme as we continue to offer customers and independent travel agents unrivalled choice and flexibility, thanks to the launch of Formentera.
