The airline is expected to increase flights to holiday spots in Greece and Turkey, as well as restoring its previously popular Egypt route
TUI has announced the expansion of its summer 2022 schedule from Bristol Airport by reintroducing its service to Sharm EI Sheikh in Egypt, plus the addition flights to six destinations.
The airline plans to boost the frequency of operations due to increased customer demand. Passengers will be able fly to Tenerife and Paphos with a thrice-weekly service and Florida twice a week.
“As the airline with the largest regional airport network in the UK, we’re committed to offering our customers as much availability as possible to our great range of holidays,” said Richard Sofer, commercial and business development director at TUI. “We’re delighted to expand our summer 2022 programme from Bristol with increased flying to several destinations and a reintroduced route, providing even more flight options for our customers.”
Dave Lees, CEO at Bristol Airport, added: “We are delighted with TUI’s exciting, expanded Summer 2022 programme from Bristol Airport. The additional flights are particularly welcome as the routes remain high on the wish-list of customers using Bristol Airport. The improved range of destinations and improved frequency will help ensure TUI offers customers throughout the South West and Wales a great choice and options of holidays available from their regional airport.”
A route between Bristol and Turkey is set to be the most popular, as the airport plans to introduce four weekly flights to Dalaman, three to Antalya and two to Bodrum.
A Greece programme is also expected to be made available, splitting off into a choice of nine smaller islands within the region, including a weekly service to Halkidiki and Santorini, Skiathos and Kefalonia twice a week, as well as a thrice-weekly journey to Corfu, Heraklion, Kos and Rhodes.
Flights to the carrier’s popular Sharm El Sheikh destination are also set to be reinstated.
