European destinations 'still popular with leisure travellers'

Traditional European destinations remain popular with people taking stag weekends and holidays abroad, according to one airline.

Paul Simmons, UK regional manager for easyJet, said the firm is experiencing strong demand from both business and leisure travellers, despite the effects of the global financial crisis.

He revealed that more and more people are looking to take city breaks, while the number of tourists planning to visit traditional countries in Europe also remains high.

Stag parties looking to visit some of the continent's biggest cities could benefit from easyJet's range of flights, as the firm plans to introduce a further 13 routes across Europe this summer.

Mr Simmons said: "There is a deliberate strategy we've been having for a number of years now to connect to the major capitals in Europe and the major cities in Europe."

According to price comparison site trivago, people looking to take holidays in the UK should make sure they take time to compare prices and plan ahead to get the best deal for their money this year.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19015678-ADNFCR
