Dublin, Ireland (PRWEB UK) 6 January 2012
Irish people are still going on sun holidays, not nearly as many as in 2007 or 2008, but people are still traveling; a quick look at the load factors for Aer Lingus and Ryanair will validate this. This article looks at the trends seen in the Irish travel company based on figures and facts from ClickandGo.com.
Whilst the number of charter seats is down from 1 million in 2007 to only 300,000 in 2011, that does not show the full picture as most holidaymakers are now travelling to the sun on scheduled airlines like Aer Lingus and booking online with the likes of http://www.ClickandGo.com
The ‘last minute holiday’ market is way down with sun holidays now being planned, budgeted for and booked 9 to 10 weeks in advance.
Of all holiday sectors, ski holidays have been hardest hit; this is evidenced by the withdrawal of Inghams from the Irish market in September 2011 and reduced programmes from the remaining operators.
