A new survey from Travelzoo has revealed that some 84 per cent of British holidaymakers do not intend to let this month’s volcanic ash disruption affect their future plans to travel by plane.
UK holidaymakers are not likely to let the disruption caused by the volcanic eruption in Iceland earlier this month deter their future travel plans.
A new survey from Travelzoo indicated that while 24 per cent of all respondents had been affected in some way by the volcanic ash cloud, 84 per cent said they were not likely to change any future plans to travel by plane.
Its Volcano Travel Disruption Survey also indicated that 64 per cent of people claimed to be no more or less interested in changing their travel preferences than before the eruption.
“Fortunately the ash cloud has not deterred people from travelling in the near future and this is great news for the travel industry,” commented Travelzoo’s UK managing director Joel Brandon-Bravo.
Holidaymakers who are looking to book a flight to South Africa for the World Cup this summer may have further incentive to travel by plane.
German carrier Lufthansa has announced that its first-class cabins are set to get a makeover, with the new look debuting in May.
Air France also intends to make similar upgrades to its first-class service.
