CHANNEL ISLANDS HOLIDAY SALES GROWTH CONTINUES FOLLOWING WARM SUMMER & BREXIT WORRIES

Airways Holidays has seen a 14% growth in sales from retailers during the first eight weeks of 2019. Fears over the impact of Brexit coupled with the warm and sunny summer last year have helped the operator achieve double digit growth in January, February and the first week of March.

Passports are not necessary for travel to Jersey and Guernsey - just a form of valid photographic ID. This coupled with the fact the Islands are part of the UK and accept £ sterling is generating renewed interest. Airways Holidays Sales Director, Gill McCarthy said “We are seeing fantastic early sales from a wide range of agents who are being pro-active with our social media and attracting new customers to the Channel Islands.”
