Airlines and travel agents in England have reported a wave of air travel bookings since Prime Minister Boris Johnson presented a plan to phase out corona measures.
However, relaxation around international travel is not expected before May 17, according to Johnson.
Despite this, many Britons almost immediately visited air travel providers online, the BBC reported. The TUI company claims to be inundated with bookings, especially for air travel to Greece, Spain and Turkey. TUI spoke of an increase of 500 percent overnight.
The travel company offers the ‘bookers’ to postpone their trip free of charge if they cannot go between May 17 and the end of June.
A wave of travel enthusiasts also visited the Thomas Cook, travel agency website. The company spoke of a “tidal wave” of bookings, especially to Cyprus, the Dominican Republic, Greece and Mexico.
Low-cost carrier EasyJet was pleased to note in London that the number of nightly bookings suddenly increased more than six-fold for destinations such as Alicante, Faro, Crete, Málaga and Palma de Mallorca.
