February 10, 2009 Leave a comment
A recent top destination chart published by Monarch Airlines puts Tenerife as the top winter destination. Monarch Airlines said that the Canary Islands are proving to be a popular choice for holiday makers looking to escape the weather in the UK. Lanzarote and Gran Canaria were also in the top five list.
Tenerife was also in the top five on the Monarch Airlines list for top summer destinations. It is official, tourism in Tenerife is as strong as ever which must be very comforting for the Island Community. The Island Government have invested heavily in Tenerife tourism and they will no doubt be very pleased with the latest good news. There have been fears amongst the Community that decreasing tourist numbers, especially in the current economic climate, would have disastrous consequences and this will be seen as a great moral booster.
Commenting on the booking trends, managing director of Monarch Flights and Holidays Liz Savage said, “Despite early indications that holidaymakers were looking to head east for their holidays this year, the picture to date is somewhat different. The Canary Islands which benefit from year-round sunshine and are only a four hour flight time from the UK, are the surprise destination leaders for both holiday and flight-only bookings this winter.
Monarch Airlines operate Tenerife flights from Manchester, Birmingham and London Gatwick and Luton Airports.
