TUI UK launches Summer 2019 Programme

TUI UK’s first programme launch after last year’s re-brand reveals growth plans out of Newcastle Airport thanks to extra capacity with additional flights to Palma, Corfu and Naples for summer 2019.

The enduring popularity of the Mediterranean is reflected in the programme. Flights and holidays to Palma and Corfu have all been added to the programme from Newcastle Airport for next summer. This is alongside an additional flight to Naples (Italy) which has been added to support the new homeport for Marella Explorer 2, the new ship from Marella Cruises.

TUI UK’s Commercial Director Richard Sofer said: “Summer 2019 is the most ambitious programme we have ever introduced. We are focusing firmly on expanding access to our amazing range of holidays through an extended regional flying programming concentrated on the core destinations holidaymakers want to travel to, while offering the flexibility of holiday duration they want.

“We’ve increased our capacity by adding 30,000 additional seats and additional flights from Newcastle Airport for summer 2019.”

Leon McQuaid, Aviation Development Manager at Newcastle International Airport, said: “We’re delighted to see additional capacity from TUI for summer 2019 at Newcastle Airport, which further demonstrates the commitment to the region from the world’s largest holiday company.

“Palma, Corfu and Naples are very popular destinations and I’m confident the North East travelling public will take full advantage of these extra flights, as well as the direct links to Marella Cruises’ newest ship, next summer.”

Thousands of free kids’ places will be available across all TUI and First Choice holidays and deposits will be just £50pp short and mid haul and £125pp long haul. Summer 2019 holidays will be on sale from Friday 5th April.
