Flying ahead with Norwich Airport’s 11th travel show

Norwich Airport hosts its 11th annual travel show from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, 25th January.

Holidaymakers have a chance to bag a bargain later this month at Norwich Airport’s Travel Show.

The annual show, which attracted more than 1,000 people last year and is celebrating its 11th year, takes place at the airport’s main terminal from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, 25th January.

Entry is free as is event parking.

Fifteen tour operators and airline representatives will be on hand throughout the day, offering first-hand destination and product advice on departures from Norwich Airport.

They include TUI, Balkan Holidays, Newmarket Holidays, Transun Holidays, Wendy Wu, Classic Collection Holidays, Premier Holidays, Mercury Holidays, Titan Travel, Loganair, JTA and Palladium Hotel Group.

There is an extra 5% discount on offer for all bookings made at the Travel Show plus free holiday parking for up to 15 days at Norwich airport and other exclusive offers and discounts too.

Airport managing director Richard Pace said: “This is a great opportunity for winter-weary holidaymakers to bag discounts as they plan their sunshine breaks abroad.

“Our show has become a firm fixture for people looking to book a holiday from their local airport, with sales over the last two years holding up well despite political and economic travails nationally.

“We have a great selection of destinations for the summer season, including, with TUI, the new Mediterranean destination of Antalya on Turkey’s Turquoise Coast and the seasonal continuation of Dalaman, on the country’s south-west coast, with the introduction of a second weekly flight.”

Richard added: “For the winter programme, TUI has added an extra 10,000 seats from Norwich Airport, with 10 and 11-night holidays to Tenerife, with the addition of a second weekly flight operating on Saturdays.

“We are proud to provide travel convenience for holidaymakers in the airport’s catchment of Norfolk, Suffolk and North Cambridgeshire.”

Airlines operating from the airport are KLM, Loganair, Aurigny, BH Air and Sunwing/TUI.

Destinations include the Amsterdam, Arctic Circle, Bulgaria, Corfu, Crete, Cyprus, Ibiza, Italy (the Como, Garda and Maggiore lakes, plus Tuscany), Lapland, Majorca, Menorca, Rhodes, Tenerife and Turkey.

Norwich Airport employs 274 people and supports, directly and indirectly, 1,240 jobs, with approximately £70 million contributed to the local economy.

It is part of Regional & City Airports, the airport management division of Rigby Group plc, which also owns and operates Bournemouth Airport, Coventry Airport and Exeter Airport.
