Flights to Faro airport are among the most sought after by British tourists who intend to travel in Europe for next year's vacation, according to the latest study by Skyscanner.
The online site dedicated to travel research places Faro at the top of the "top-5" of searches made for European destinations, followed by places like Malaga, Palma de Mallorca and Ibiza, in Spain, and Dalaman, in Turkey.
"According to that study, following recent news about the arrival of vaccines for covid-19, UK tourists have been showing an increasing interest in traveling abroad during the spring and summer of 2021", stresses the Tourism Association do Algarve (ATA), in a statement.
The data for November of this year point to a weekly increase of 48% in the number of searches carried out, from that market, for trips between April 1 and August 31 of next year.
“Although it is premature to draw conclusions, these seem to be promising indicators for tourism and for the Algarve in particular”, says João Fernandes, president of Turismo do Algarve.
