The sales of travel agencies abroad have increased as the number of people traveling abroad has increased.
Currently, city breaks and package tours, he says, are especially popular Timo Kousa, Managing Director of the Finnish Travel Agency Aurinkomatkat. The agency has recorded an increase in bookings and expanded its portfolio.
Laura AaltonenThe director of communications at the travel agency TUI Finland also said that the company has recently expanded its range of holiday destinations. However, there are still fewer travel destinations available than before the pandemic.
The increase in travel volumes may be due to the loosening of travel restrictions in European holiday destinations, according to Aaltonen. In addition, although a Covid certificate is still often required, particularly popular resorts such as Greece and Turkey have given up the need for a Covid-related entry form, Aaltonen said.
Aurinkomatkat Kousa said he believes travel volumes will gradually return to pre-Covid levels as travel restrictions ease and most holidaymakers have now received the vaccinations and certificates required by many countries.
Aaltonen from TUI also said that the war did not seem to have influenced the decisions of people wishing for a holiday.
However, Russia’s attack on Ukraine has affected the agencies’ trips to Thailand and other Asian destinations, which have been redirected due to the flight ban over Russia, Aaltonen added.
