“With a great choice of flights and holidays to Cyprus from eight UK bases, not to mention fantastic deals and free child places available, there’s plenty of choice and value for those looking to get away for a much-needed break in the sunshine this summer.

“These have been incredibly uncertain and difficult times for everyone, and we have been busy looking after our customers and doing the right thing for them. As a result of this, customers know they can trust us to deliver and that’s our absolute focus for anyone travelling with us - delivering award winning customer service and package holidays you can trust.”
