Flight Centre lets travellers visit the world from home

As people the world over practice social distancing, UK travellers have become eager armchair tourists seeking inspiration for when the world is open again.

Flight Centre UK has revealed the average length of time spent browsing holidays on its website, looking for bucket list adventures and planning dream escapes has increased by 92 per cent compared to the same period in 2019.

The data was collected from March 15th-April 7th.

The longer potential travellers stay at home, it seems wanderlust is also growing stronger and stronger.

Compared to February, the average time customers spent on the Flight Centre website in the month of March increased by 17 per cent compared to the previous month.

As the country patiently waits for normality to resume, Flight Centre has launched a heart-warming new video to let the UK know that the world will open again.

Yvonne Hobden, head of retail marketing at Flight Centre, said: “We were blown away to see how many people are experiencing ‘wanderlust woes’ and looking for inspiring content so they can plan their next adventure whilst being at home.

“With this in mind, we wanted to return to our core purpose to ‘open up the word for those who want to see’ and bring reassurance that we will be able to travel again in the future.”
