TUI UK’s Commercial Director Richard Sofer said:

“Summer 2019 is the most ambitious programme we have ever introduced. We are focusing firmly on expanding access to our amazing range of holidays through an extended regional flying programming concentrated on the core destinations holidaymakers want to travel to, while offering the flexibility of holiday duration they want.

“We’ve increased our capacity by adding nearly 60,000 seats out of East Midlands Airport for summer 2019. We are giving customers even more opportunity when booking their summer holidays with more 10 and 11 night holidays and additional flying days to popular destinations, as well as introducing new routes to Santorini and Faro.”

Howard Ebison, EMA’s Commercial Director, said:

“I’m delighted that TUI is adding more seats and new routes for the 2019 season.  It is further evidence that demand for summer flights from EMA is increasing. Last year was our best summer season since 2008 which we’re hoping to build on in future years. This announcement has also made my travel plans easier as I’m off to Santorini next year.”
