The UK-based holiday company, TUI UK, has recently announced Agadir, Morocco as a new destination for summer 2020 from Newcastle Airport.
The first TUI flight from Newcastle to Agadir will depart on May 7, 2020 and operate once a week on Thursdays. With the new service, TUI now offers flights to 25 destinations for summer 2020 from Newcastle Airport.
