Turkey’s popular Aegean resort of Bodrum will benefit from increased accessibility from the UK, as UK low-cost carrier Jet2 has announced it will be flying once weekly to Bodrum from Manchester Airport starting June 23rd. Jet2 holidays are also offering packages built around the flights.
Philip Meeson, the chief executive of Jet2.com, said that travelers love the low-cost travel and beautiful beaches in Turkey, so they are happy to add Bodrum to their list of destinations. People in the region are sure to buy up the available seats, he added, as they are offering some great flight times and a 22kg baggage allowance.
When asked for his response to the announcement, Director of UK based Turkish property agent Spot Blue said:
“Keep them coming. We love to hear about new flights to Turkey, from the UK or anywhere else in the world, because they will continue to benefit the property market, in the areas covered and in the country’s tourist areas as a whole.”
Walker went on to explain the benefit to the Bodrum property market: “New flights means that demand for flights, and therefore tourism is growing, as well as allowing growth to accelerate by providing more flight capacity. This increasing tourism will continue to make Turkey a popular choice with overseas investors and holiday home investors. Meanwhile holiday home buyers and retirees look to increased accessibility in making their choice over where to buy.”
Turkey and Bodrum are receiving a lot of coverage in the press lately, including an article in the Daily Mirror last month praising Bodrum as a non-stop party town.
