Leading flight search engine, WhichBudget.com, reports an 18% fall in overall searches for flights to Spain following yesterday’s announcement of possible Spanish airport strikes from April to September.
In the last 24 hours, searches to Spain are down by nearly a fifth, with nervous Brits diverting their Spring and Summer holiday searches to other European destinations. Greece searches were up by 65%, Turkey was up by 55%, Italy searches increased by 28% and France searches grew by 18%.
Martino Matijevic, CEO and Founder at WhichBudget.com comments; "Spain is a very popular destination for UK travellers, and I am not surprised that people are diverting their attention to other European destinations instead of foregoing their Spring break or Summer holiday all-together.
