    TUI RESPONDS TO CUSTOMER DEMAND FOR SUMMER HOLIDAYS WITH NEW FLIGHTS TO MADEIRA AND PORTUGAL

    7th May 2021: TUI has responded to growing demand from customers looking to enjoy holidays in ‘Green List’ destinations, Madeira and Portugal’s Algarve region this summer.

    New flights and extra holidays have been added to give more choice and flexibility for those who want to get away as quickly as possible, following the news that Brits can travel to “green” destinations without having to quarantine on their return from 17 May.

    The new departures are from London Gatwick, Manchester, Birmingham and Bristol, as follows:

    Funchal (Madeira): additional weekly flights from London Gatwick and Manchester, every Friday from 21 May to 29 October, and twice weekly from Birmingham, every Monday and Friday from 17 May to 29 October. These extra flights open-up the opportunity to book 10 and 11 night-holidays.

    Faro (Portugal): additional weekly flight from Bristol, operating every Thursday from 20 May to 28 October. This is in addition to the 11 weekly flights already on offer from other UK airports on Thursdays and Sundays throughout the Summer.

    These long-standing Mediterranean gems all offer a wide choice to suit all holidaymakers. Madeira’s sub-tropical climate makes it well-placed for exploring its dramatic scenery and nature, as well as it’s cosmopolitan dining scene, and Portugal’s Algarve has some of the best golden sandy beaches in the Med.

    Now that the Government has confirmed the traffic light system for international travel, customers who have a holiday booked to an Amber destination have the reassurance and flexibility to change their holiday to a Green destination under the free change policy in place for bookings up to and including 31 August 2021.

    Andrew Flintham Managing Director of TUI UK said: “These destinations have always been firm favourite for Brits, so it’s no surprise demand has increased following speculation they could be available from 17 May without the need to quarantine on return. 

    “We own every element of the holiday programme, so are uniquely placed to respond to customer demand and add additional holidays to the most popular hotspots. We’ve also introduced new subsidised testing packages, which start from just £20 for green list destinations to help our customers get away for their long-awaited holiday.”
