TUI Airways will offer over ten million flight seats this summer for holiday destinations and its Marella cruise programme.
The airline operates from 13 UK airports with the lead Manchester providing a planned 2.3 million seats and ten daily destinations including a new route to Budapest.
Back in 2013 TUI became the first British operator of the Boeing 787 and now has a fleet of 14. Short-haul the airline operates around 50 Boeing 737 series.
Andrew Flintham, TUI’s Managing Director, said: “Our customers want more flexibility and to be able to choose a departure airport that is close to home – and that is exactly what the new TUI 2024 summer programme has been designed to do. We want every one of our customers to be able to create a holiday as unique as they are – departure airport, destination and duration are all key components which come together to make the perfect TUI holiday.
“The 2024 programme will see extra flights departing from across the UK with additional TUI flying from Glasgow, Bournemouth, Newcastle, Bristol, and East Midlands. Each region of the UK will see significant increase in flight seats offering more holidays to those living in the region.”
