TUI ADDS EXTRA CAPACITY FOR SUMMER 2022 FROM BIRMINGHAM AIRPORT
- Increased flying to 6 destinations
- Additional based aircraft at Birmingham Airport
As travel restrictions relax, summer holidays are high on the nation's agenda and to meet the demand TUI UK has added an additional based aircraft at Birmingham Airport this summer.
Birmingham Airport will see an increase of six flights throughout the summer to six different destinations including Greek hotspots Kos, Rhodes and Crete as well as Turkey and Palma.
As Turkey continues to rise as a popular short-haul destination offering excellent value for the summer, TUI will operate a large programme from Birmingham Airport with 15 flights operating per week to Dalaman and Antalya.
For customers looking for longer than a seven-night stay, TUI will increase holiday durations to offer more 10/11-night holidays from Birmingham to Greece, Palma and Turkey.
Richard Sofer, TUI’s Commercial and Business Development Director said:
“Summer holidays are an important way for our customers to relax and reconnect with loved ones, and that’s never been more important than this year. To ensure we’re offering maximum flexibility and choice we’ve increased the number of flights to our most popular summer destinations with an extra based aircraft at Birmingham Airport. We’re delighted that international travel is bouncing back and the forecast for this summer’s holiday season is bright.”
Tom Screen, Aviation Director of Birmingham Airport said:
“It is great news that TUI is adding additional based aircraft resulting in extra flights from Birmingham Airport for Summer 2022. With travel restrictions lifting, the excitement of holidays is building for the summer season and this expansion, in based aircraft and additional routes, shows TUI’s commitment to Birmingham Airport and the region. Our customers, some who have not flown for a couple of years, now have the choice of some great European destinations and long haul too, all with the convenience and flexibility of TUI’s great customer service and ATOL protected holidays.”
