TUI adds more departures to green list holiday resorts from May 17

The UK’s biggest tour operator has added thousands of new flight seats and holiday places following the announcement of the Government’s green travel list.

TUI has responded to growing demand by massively increasing its programme to Madeira and Portugal’s Algarve region this summer with new departures from London Gatwick, Manchester, Birmingham Airport and Bristol, as follows:

Funchal (Madeira): additional weekly flights from London Gatwick and Manchester, every Friday from May 21 to October 29, and twice weekly from Birmingham, every Monday and Friday from May 17 to October 29.

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

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 May 17 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.”
