Travel agencies Tui, Ving, and Apollo have all reported an increase in demand for package holidays after the latest pandemic infection measures were lifted recently.

There has been a large increase in the sale of package holidays according to the latest figures of three travel companies. Ving, Tui, and Apollo have all seen a surge in demand following the further reopening up of Norwegian society.

Tui saw a 49% increase in the sale of tour packages, communications manager Nora Aspengren told E24. She also said that holidays to Gran Canaria, in Spain, were particularly popular for those that wanted relatively stress-free and efficient travel in the immediate term whilst. Greece was also a popular destination for the upcoming summer holidays too.

Tui was not alone in its holiday package demand. Ingrid Osa, from the travel agency Ving, said that her company has seen a surge in bookings.

Talking to the newspaper VG, she remarked that “we had an increase in our charter sales from Week 3 to Week 4 of 72%”. VG also reported that Apollo had also seen a sales increase of 40% increase from Week 4 to Week 5.
