Travel company TUI UK is launching holidays from Norwich Airport for winter next year and summer 2022 as hopeful holidaymakers look forward to overseas breaks post Covid-19.

The holidays which go on sale on Thursday, November 5, offer will have thousands of free places for children, low deposits from £75 per person and require no deposit payments for direct debit bookings made online on offer.

With ongoing travel corridor uncertainty for some regular favourites this winter, those craving sunshine during the coldest months have already booked for next winter, with strong demand showing for Tenerife from Norwich Airport.

For winter 2021/22, TUI will operate two weekly flights to Tenerife which will also connect with five Marella Cruises itineraries, including Canarian Flavours, Colourful Coasts and Island Explorer.

With 57 per cent of customers saying they expect to book a Mediterranean beach holiday for 2021, TUI anticipates greater demand for summer 2022 as people want to make up for not being able to go away this year.

So far, Greece is the standout destination of choice based on current bookings for next summer, with Turkey and Egypt also popular, and patterns indicate these trends could continue into 2022.

The summer 2022 programme from Norwich Airport will see nine destinations on offer, with reintroduced flights to Ibiza, three flights every week to Majorca and three Greek islands on offer.

TUI is seeing an upward trend in 4 and 5-star all-inclusive hotel bookings for next summer, with over 40 per cent of customers surveyed expressing this preference. This includes hotels which offer villas or room options with private pools and accommodation as families in particular seek to continue to feel safe in their bubble.

TUI will be offering 233 different options in 155 hotels for this growing category in summer 2021 and expects this trend to continue for summer 2022.

Richard Sofer, commercial and business development director at TUI, said: “Our latest customer survey and booking patterns for next summer indicate that the great British public are looking forward to future holidays even more so as they may have been unable to take one this year.

"This is why we have launched our future holiday programmes through to the end of October 2022, so that families and couples alike can plan ahead to next year and beyond to make informed choices about what will make their perfect holiday from the wide range we have on offer.”

Richard Pace, managing director of Norwich Airport, said: “It’s fantastic news for our airport and our region, with air travel and international connectivity critical to both. We welcome TUI’s announcement and look forward to seeing a return to passenger growth, with a clear demand for travel post-Covid-19, and a variety of routes offering passengers a great choice of destinations.”
