TUI UK, the UK’s largest holiday operator has launched its winter 2019 programme revealing growth plans for Birmingham Airport, with new weekly routes to Agadir, Morocco and Marsa Alam, Egypt and additional flights to Hurghada, Egypt.
On sale now, the winter 2019 season will continue to offer holidaymakers in the West Midlands region more choice and flexibility than ever before, with an increased capacity of nearly 21,000 additional seats at Birmingham airport. Continuing to recognise that not everyone wants to holiday for 7 or 14 nights, customers will also have the option of 10 and 11 night holidays to Orlando Sanford from April. There will also be an additional day added to the flight programme for flights from Birmingham airport to Hurghada in Egypt.
The move to introduce these routes is part of TUI’s strategy to ensure customers across the UK can fly from their local airport and stay at the best hotels in some of the most exciting destinations around the world, including TUI flagship properties such as the TUI Sensimar Alaya in Marsa Alam.
TUI UK’s Director of Aviation Planning Karen Switzer said: “Adding more choice and flexibility for demonstrates our commitment to Birmingham airport and the local area, as we continue to focus on expanding access to our amazing range of holidays through an extended flying programming concentrated on the core destinations that we know our customers want to visit.”
Birmingham Airport’s Acting Aviation Director Tom Screen said: “We are pleased TUI has announced that it will be introducing a direct route to the Moroccan city of Agadir this winter. We have seen the popularity of Agadir growing during the colder months as it’s a destination which enjoys warm climates all year round so for TUI to serve this demand from Birmingham is fantastic. What’s more, TUI will also be offering ten and eleven-night holidays from Birmingham Airport to Orlando Sanford Airport Florida, as well as additional flights to Hurghada departing on Tuesdays. We look forward to continuing to work with TUI on popular destinations like these in the future.”
For the first time ever, TUI will also be selling summer 2020 holidays from early November – the earliest the tour operator has sold a summer programme. This is to provide customers that want to secure their favourite hotels or preferred flight options earlier than ever before.
