TUI LAUNCHES BIGGEST EVER WINTER PROGRAMME WITH 150,000 MORE SEATS
TUI, the leading global travel and leisure company, is adding a further 150,000 additional seats for UK customers for winter 2023. TUI expects demand for winter sun to increase following positive bookings, with North African destinations providing great value and guaranteed sun.
With nine additional flights added for the full winter season, including a new flight to Boa Vista, Cape Verde from Birmingham, and weekly flights to Sid, Cape Verde from Glasgow, Birmingham and East Midlands, plus a new weekly flight to Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt from Manchester, London Gatwick and Newcastle, holidaymakers have even more choice with TUI this winter.
Following recent news that TUI added Marsa Alam as a new winter spot in Egypt with two weekly flights from London Gatwick, the leading travel company have added 80,000 more seats for the winter season. A solid winter sun favourite, Egypt offers the highest number of seats and holiday options across TUI’s North African destinations. There will be a weekly Monday flight to Sharm El Sheikh from Manchester and London Gatwick plus a weekly Wednesday flight from Newcastle. In addition to four weekly flights from London Gatwick and Manchester, three weekly flights from Birmingham and two weekly flights from Glasgow, Bristol and East Midlands, TUI is adding a Saturday flight from Manchester and London Gatwick and a brand-new Cardiff flight from Easter 2024. Hurghada is another popular spot in Egypt and TUI is adding a London Gatwick and Manchester airport Saturday flight from Easter 2024, following strong Easter bookings this year to the destination.
Cape Verde has grown in popularity for British sun seekers since launching in 2005. With a further 45,000 seats added for this winter, customers can take advantage of the long sandy beaches, perfect temperatures and cultural spots off the west coast of Africa. TUI is adding a third weekly flight to Boa Vista from Birmingham, as well as weekly UK departures to Sal from Newcastle, Glasgow and East Midlands airport.
With incredible deals, Tunisia is a perfect sunbathing spot with great all-inclusive beach front resorts for customers looking for value breaks. TUI is adding 15,000 new seats with new flights to Enfidha from Bristol, Gatwick, Manchester and Birmingham, starting from Easter 2024. This came as extra flights were also added to Enfindha from Newcastle in February half term.
The rise of Morocco as one of the most popular winter destinations has continued, and to meet demand, TUI is offering additional flights from Easter 2024 to provide 10 and 11 night durations to Agadir from Birmingham, and to Marrakesh from Birmingham and Bristol, both starting from Easter 2024.
