TUI keeps flying

Holidaymakers, and people with time on their hands, will be pleased to learn that TUI is introducing a Caribbean winter programme from this week.   The reduced European schedule is continued. 

The airline is ranked number four (easyJet, BA, Jet2) in British carriers for passenger numbers carried.

In 2019 TUI flew 11.8m passengers, a rise of 5.8% at a load factor of 93%.

TUI operates a fleet of 14 Boeing 787 Dreamliners in a two-class layout.  

For St Lucia there is a weekly programme from Gatwick on a Tuesday and Manchester on a Thursday.  Flight time is about 8hr 45min.

For the Cuban resort of Varaderoon, which borders the Straight of Florida (Havana is a day tour from the beaches) again the flights are weekly and take about 9hr.

In Europe flights can be currently booked to Crete, Cyprus, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Kos, Lanzarote, Paphos, Rhodes and Tenerife, but do check on the TUI website.

The airline says it is currently offering a range of 15 UK airports for both summer 2021 and winter 2021/22 destinations (including those currently not operating but are on sale for future dates).
