The UK-based holiday company TUI has added an additional weekly flight from Bristol Airport to the Greek island of Kos and Turkish destination of Dalaman for summer 2018, Bristol Airport has said.
As part of the plan, TUI will add a Sunday flight to the summer flying programme to The Turkish destination and a Saturday flight to the Greek island. Flights start in May 2018 and will now operate twice a week to both Kos and Dalaman.
Karen Switzer, Director of Aviation Planning for TUI UK & Ireland, said: ‘We are delighted to be expanding our programme from Bristol Airport for summer 2018. We have added a Sunday flight to Dalaman and a Saturday flight to Kos meaning we now fly twice a week to both destinations from this local airport. These additional flights mean that customers can now book 10 and 11 night holidays adding even more choice when deciding how long to go away for. In total we have 38 destinations for customers to choose from when booking their holidays from Bristol Airport. Holidaymakers in the South West will now have wider access than ever before to our diverse collection of destinations and hotel concepts.’
Nigel Scott, Business Development Director, Bristol Airport said: ‘We are delighted with TUI’s continued route expansion from Bristol Airport adding even more flexibility and choice of exciting destinations to passengers in the South West and Wales region.’
Besides the extra flights to Kos and Dalaman, travellers and holidaymakers are offered more choice of destinations when booking their holidays this summer with new routes already on sale from Bristol to Hurghada in Egypt and Skiathos in Greece, the airport said.
