It’s now possible to fly to your destination directly from your local airport more often than before as travel operator TUI has added a significant number of provincial flights for the summer season (April–October 2018).

There are 45 per cent more provincial flights offered compared to last year. Already 77 per cent of all provincial flights for the summer season have been booked, so TUI has even added extra departures for the autumn holiday weeks.

“We’re excited to see that the demand for provincial flights has been so high. We are happy to respond to the demand by offering more direct flights from different parts of Finland. Direct flights from your local airport to the destination is good for customers and an environmentally friendly alternative,” says Anna-Maria Mettin, Head of Digital Sales & Marketing at TUI Finland.

TUI has doubled the number of direct charter flights from, for example, Oulu for the summer season. There are also more local departures than before from Vaasa, Tampere, Kuopio, Kokkola, Pori and Kajaani. The number of destinations to choose has increased and there are also a few new destinations.

“It’s now possible to fly directly to Crete and Bulgaria from Oulu. The new summer destination from Tampere is Rhodes, and from Vaasa the new destination is Crete,” says Mettin.

Summer destinations are being booked right now at an accelerating pace, but especially families with children are already booking their autumn holidays.

“The selection is at its widest in October as the Mediterranean destinations are still open and the season is already starting on the Canary Islands. There are still plenty of hotels to choose from, but nice family rooms are usually the first to sell out,” Mettin explains.
