New flights and holidays to Antalya for Welsh holidaymakers

TUI (formerly Thomson) the UK’s largest holiday brand, has today announced a new route to Antalya, Turkey for summer 2018 operating out of Cardiff Airport.

Holidaymakers from Wales will now have even more choice when it comes to booking a summer holiday, with TUI adding a new weekly flight to Antalya. Flights start in May 2018 and will operate every Monday.

The decision to add Antalya to the network is part of the holiday company’s plans to offer as much choice as possible, ensuring customers across the UK can fly from their local airport and stay at the best hotels TUI has to offer such as the 5T TUI Sensatori Resort Sorgun.

As well as new flights and holidays to Antalya, Welsh holidaymakers now have a wide choice of destinations to Turkey to choose from. When booking holidays from Cardiff this summer customers can choose between Antalya and Dalaman which is already on sale.

Karen Switzer, Director of Aviation Planning for TUI UK & Ireland, said: “We are delighted to be adding Antalya to our programme from Cardiff Airport for summer 2018. We will be flying to two destinations in Turkey this summer with the addition of Antalya and Dalaman to the network. In total we have over 20 destinations for customers to choose from when booking their holidays from Cardiff Airport. Holidaymakers in Wales now have wider access than ever before to our diverse collection of destinations and hotel concepts.”

Spencer Birns, Commercial Director at Cardiff Airport said: “We are delighted with TUI’s latest route announcement, adding even more exciting destinations for summer 2018 from Cardiff Airport. Turkey is a very popular destination for our customers, with TUI offering holidays to Dalaman and now Antalya. Today’s announcement is sure to be very popular with holidaymakers.”
