TUI UK launches summer 2019 programme
Created: 26th Mar 2018
TUI UK’s first programme launch after last year’s re-brand reveals ambitious growth plans with two new routes and additional flights out of Bristol Airport for summer 2019.
- Two new routes to Marrakech and Halkidiki
- Additional flights added to popular destinations – Antalya, Kefalonia and Cancun plus an extra cruise flight to Naples
Recognising that not everyone wants to holiday for 7 or 14 nights, customers can find more 10 and 11 night stays thanks to additional flights to Antalya, Kefalonia and Cancun reflecting the enduring popularity of Greece, the resurgence of Turkey and the demand for long haul flying on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Customers flying from Bristol Airport will see an increase of 10,000 seats offering holidaymakers more choice and flexibility than ever before. Additional flying has also been added to Naples (Italy) to support the new homeport for Marella Explorer 2, the new ship from Marella Cruises.
TUI UK’s Commercial Director Richard Sofer said:
“Summer 2019 is the most ambitious programme we have ever introduced. We are focusing firmly on expanding access to our amazing range of holidays through an extended regional flying programming concentrated on the core destinations holidaymakers want to travel to, while offering the flexibility of holiday duration they want.
“We’ve increased our capacity out of Bristol Airport adding 10,000 additional seats and launching two new routes to Marrakech and Halkidiki for summer 2019. We are giving customers even more opportunity when booking their summer holidays with more 10 and 11 night holidays and responding to cruise demand with an additional Naples flight.”
Nigel Scott, Business Development Director, Bristol Airport said:
“We are delighted with TUI’s programme for summer 2019. These new flights show the positive momentum offering extended choice of destinations for passengers in the South West and Wales region from Bristol Airport. We particularly welcome the additional Cancun flight which provides a twice weekly service and allows the flexibility of 10 and 11 night stays, rather than the traditional two week holiday to this long haul destination.”
Thousands of free kids’ places will be available across all TUI and First Choice holidays and deposits will be just £50pp short and mid haul and £125pp long haul. Summer 2019 holidays will be on sale from Thursday 5th April.
