Several of the country’s largest travel companies reported a surge in the past week, after authorities announced a return to something more normal.
We’ve more than doubled, says Sandra Miller King, Apollo Director of Communications.
“The positive news last week has really boosted our bookings and we can say we’re back to the same levels of winter travel in Europe as it was before the pandemic,” said Adam Gyurki, TUI’s Director of Communications, in a press release.
The STS Alpresor is almost sold out before the sports holiday in February and the company has added additional rides until then.
“I know what’s going on”
Judging by the lists of private companies, a significant part of all travel-hungry Swedes dream of charter flights to the Canary Islands.
– He’s very famous. Many people want to travel to safe destinations they are used to and where you know what applies, says Sandra Miller King on Apollo.
For long-distance destinations outside Europe, the situation is another. In many places, strict rules are still in place, or the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs continues to advise against traveling there.
Thailand, a popular winter destination, is difficult to rate at the moment, as is the United States, where significant restrictions remain on who is allowed in.
Believe in coming back soon
The trend of seizure began to move in a positive direction as an increasing part of the population was vaccinated.
“We believe the booking rate will rise sharply next month and hopefully we’ll be able to go back to normal sizes already this winter,” STS Alpresor Marketing Director Hanna Bernvid announced in a press release.
– We are a bit far from normal as the show is not back to the same level. But people seem to interpret the messages as a signal to dare go back to business, says Apollo’s Sandra Miller-King.
