EasyJet and easyJet holidays have revealed the latest travel trends for 2024.
- Top five destinations for flight bookings during the first week of the easyJet sale were Amsterdam, Paris, Geneva, Alicante and Malaga
Flights to Egypt, Milan and Lapland have risen in popularity for Britons in 2024
Flights to Grenoble and Turin saw a ‘ski-jump’ in popularity compared to last year
All-inclusive, seven-night breaks most popular for easyJet holidays package trips with Tenerife, Lanzarote and Hurghada topping the table for beach packages
Paris, Amsterdam and Iceland proving to be the most popular city packages since the start of the sale
More people are spending the festive period shopping for package holiday deals, with web and app visits up for both Christmas and Boxing Day
Discounted fares and package holidays are still available until 5 February 2024.
The booking trends follow recent research carried out by the airline in November 2023 that showed more than two thirds of Brits (67%) have said they more likely to travel abroad in 2024 than in 2023. Protecting holiday spend remains a priority for most with over three quarters (77%) saying they will prioritise spending money on a holiday over anything else in their yearly budget – up from 70% last year.
Johan Lundgren, easyJet CEO commented: ”Year after year we continue to see the value and importance of holidays to consumers, which is evident in this traditionally busy booking period for holidays. It’s great to see North African destinations seeing a resurgence in popularity alongside last minute winter sun, city and ski bookings for the new year. Destinations in Spain and Portugal remain firm favourites for our customers time and time again, while the popularity of easyJet holidays packages shows no sign of slowing down, with all-inclusive breaks proving most popular for 2024.
“With flights from the UK to over 130 destinations to choose from across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, package holidays available to over 5000 hotels and customers choosing us for our network and fantastic value for money, easyJet is looking forward to taking even more people on the holidays they value in 2024.”
easyJet serves 21 airports across the UK, offering more than 460 routes to over 130 destinations from the UK to Europe, the Middle East and North Africa.
