More Brits are booking flights to Egypt and Turkey

first_imgMore Brits are booking flights to Egypt and Turkey after realising that destinations in the countries are less than five hours away.This is according to holiday companies Thomson and First Choice, which have increased flights to mid-haul destinations by 11 percent after Egyptian and Turkish destinations experienced a “surge in popularity”.Thomson and First Choice head of short and mid-haul products Alex Loftus said that families had become more inclined to opt for the countries after previously being accustomed to self-catering units in short-haul destinations.”This has been in part due to the rising cost of the euro but also due to the excellent four and five star all-inclusive resorts in these destinations, which offer fantastic facilities for families without the hassle of cooking or eating out,” he explained.Next summer, Thomson Airways will launch new flights to Turkey, Tunisia and Egypt from Stansted, Cardiff and Bournemouth airports.The Association of Independent Tour Operators recently said that more people were booking flights abroad in August following the Met Office’s revised summer forecast for the UK.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map RelatedIncrease in flights makes Egypt and Turkey more accessibleBrits are booking flights to Egypt and Turkey after realising that destinations in the countries are less than five hours awayFewer European visitors leads to ‘more enjoyable’ continental holidaysPeople booking flights to Europe this year are having a more enjoyable time because of the fewer number of visitorsReal Value Resorts: Perception Vs RealityReal Value Resorts: Perception Vs Realitylast_img
