(Vocus/PRWEB) March 02, 2011
The number of recorded visitors to Tenerife during 2010 increased and this trend looks set to continue with the Canary Island likely to attract a lot of traffic originally headed for Egypt.
Jet2.com has this month announced extra services to Tenerife in a move that is likely to help cater for the demand. A reported 65% increase in demand for cheap flights to Tenerife has been recorded which should give some indication about its potential for 2011.
Jet2.com’s decision to put on extra services, as well as being a response to demand, is also likely to increase the interest in holidays on Tenerife.
More Weekly Flights
An additional flight to Tenerife from Manchester will mean there are now three weekly flights from the airport. This is complemented by an additional route from Leeds Bradford that means there are now four flights a week from Jet2.com’s base.
Tenerife’s status as a winter sun destination ensures that, unlike some other destinations which are reliant on the seasons, the island continues to welcome visitors throughout the year.
It is the promise of glorious sunshine out of peak season that attracts so many visitors to the African continent. With places like Egypt and Tunisia currently recovering from internal strife, it isn’t the best time to visit such destinations. As a substitute the beaches of Tenerife aren’t bad.
In fact it is the close proximity to the African continent that provides Tenerife and the other Canary Islands with their good weather. Some of the beaches that hug the island’s coast also used imported sand from the Sahara, only a few miles away across the water.
Playa de las Americas is one such beach and is arguably one of the most popular on the island.
With cheap flights to Tenerife now more readily available from Jet2.com, 2011 looks likely to be the year that people flock to the Canary Island.
