Said Peter McMinn, Owner and MD “ it is great that the travel industry has got back on its feet again so quickly. We have had a great year, thanks to great destinations and great loyalty from our travel agency partners and clients. And that is why we have made the commitment to increasing our capacity by up to 15% from our summer charter business, and our new destinations for 2024, bringing more holiday choice to Northern Ireland. We are looking forward to the challenge!
