Holidaymakers will be able to visit more holiday hotspots with Jet2 and Jet2holidays

The airline has announced new routes will travel to Europe from Birmingham this summer.

British tourists will be able to visit Tivat in Montenegro, Lesvos in Greece and Bergen in Norway.

The first flights will take off to Tivat starting on October 31 and customers will be able to travel on two weekly services on Mondays and Thursdays. This will give Britons more chances to see all that Montenegro has to offer.

Jet2 states: "Between the grand marina, spectacular restaurants and designer shops, the beautiful town of Tivat twinkles with luxury.

"The classic architecture and sacred monuments nod towards Montenegro’s rich history, paired with colourful streets and lush vegetation to complement the favourable Mediterranean.

"Beyond Tivat, wider Montenegro boasts luscious lakes, peaceful bays, and picturesque hikes through its National Park for a holiday destination that keeps on giving."

Jet2 will also expand its services from Birmingham to Bergen starting next week, offering two Thursday services from May 9. New flights to Bergen will also take off from Manchester, Leeds and Newcastle.

Jet2 continued: "As well as giving customers access to stunning the Norwegian Fjords, the city of Bergen presents a backdrop of spectacular mountains which are wrapped around a picturesque harbour lined with a variety of fashionable restaurants and bars.

"Harbour district Bryggen is part of UNESCO’s World Heritage List and provides visitors with one of the world's most significant examples of the history and culture of a particular medieval settlement.

"This once-in-a-lifetime destination makes for the ideal getaway for those seeking an authentic cultural experience alongside beautifully refreshing nature."

Jet2 customers can enjoy a taste of Lesvos starting from May 26, when it will begin operating weekly Sunday services to the island until October 6.

CEO of and Jet2holidays Steve Heapy said: “We are delighted to be waving off our first flight to Tivat from Birmingham Airport and look forward to seeing our inaugural flights to Bergen and Lesvos take off from the airport base later this month too.

"The addition of these stunning holiday destinations has proven to be extremely popular with customers and independent travel agents looking to book or travel on a getaway.

"Tivat, Bergen and Lesvos are fantastic additions to our enormous summer 24 programme from Birmingham Airport and it means we are extending our popular holiday offerings significantly for locals in the Midlands.
