Scramble for flights to Turkey following holiday firm collapse

Flight comparison site Skyscanner reports that flight searches to Turkey more than doubled in the aftermath of the failure of specialist holiday firm Holidays 4U this week.

Gareth Williams, Skyscanner CEO sympathised with the tens of thousands of holidaymakers whose plans have been spoiled by the demise of Holidays 4U and said: “Demand for flights to Turkey has shot up by 111% following yesterday’s announcement as travellers attempt to salvage their ruined holidays”.

He continued, “Brits are being squeezed hard financially this year and don’t want to give up on the holiday they’ve looked forward to and paid for. Rather than lose the whole holiday some are obviously considering buying additional flights, if they can get a good deal.”
