The Holiday Company Is Making Waves Currently…
Looking away from Muscat, TUI is making waves ahead of the Summer 2023/24 season, with as many route offerings and charters being made as possible.
The most recent news came on Friday when it was revealed that it would be adding more flights to its Bournemouth base, including the addition of a second aircraft there.
In total, 60,000 extra seats are being planned by the operator for the summer 2024 season. This will represent a 33% increase in capacity at Bournemouth Airport compared to this year.
The allocation of the second-based aircraft at the Airport will facilitate the larger frequency of flights.
It is news like this, as well as from Muscat, where the airline and the holiday company will try to acquire as much revenue as possible in what is going to be a busy 12 months ahead.
