Looks like with Iraq, and other world news its hitting UK bookings more than ever and the move to bring winter 2003/4 bookings out very early went down well for tour operators. With this in mind, the big three Tui UK, Thomas Cook and My Travel have all decided to launch the Summer Sun 2004 brochure tomorrow, and TUI UK also have Skytours (the ultimate family brand).
I work for Tui UK and we have found bookings hard to comeby, but they are slowly picking up again now. Speaking to a collegue for Tui Nordic looks like business is slowly pulling up but not quiet fast enough.
Tui summer 2004, tui skytours summer 2004, thomas cook summer sun 2004, and my travel (airtours) summer sun 2004 all launch tomorrow.
A date for the long haul summer 2004 launch has yet to be announced.
