GERMAN GROWTH 10,000 Extra Seats This Summer

German flight and tour operators have pledged to add an additional 10,000 seats to Lanzarote this coming summer. As the island´s tourist authorities set the seal on a number of deals at the ITB fair in Berlin - with a view to maintaining the current momentum in tourist growth.

During January alone total tourist arrivals rose by just over 18% - with the German market expanding year on year by 27.6%, according to the latest data just released by Frontur. And the latest deals struck at ITB should ensure that this curve remains upward across the summer months.

The Scandinavian market is also in for a boost next winter - as Grupo Primera Travel, one of the largest tour operators in that region, have announced plans to expand their charter program with the introduction of five flights from Finland and two from fellow volcanic isle, Iceland.
