Rising costs of living don’t appear to have hurt Danes as much as two years of major COVID-19 travel restrictions.
According to digital news publisher The Local, Danish travel agencies Bravo Tours and Spies have reported that travel packages to Mauritius and Thailand have sold out. Zanzibar and Dubai.
That’s not the only thing Danes want to travel. The items for sale are gorgeous.
– The average price of a trip to Maldives is 36,000 kr ($ 5.111). Sure, TUI’s head of media communications, Kike Wiese, knows we still want to travel.
At the same time, Copenhagen Airport said it expected 8.5 million passengers in the winter season, up from 10 million pre-COVID.
As airlines still struggle to keep up with the decline during the Covid crisis, Copenhagen Airports Director Peter Korsgaard said 2023 will be a year-round, compared to the previous year, which started somewhat quietly. He said he expects to be busy.
However, Bravo Tours has reached the same level of activity as before the pandemic and is running out of flights.
– Currently there is a problem of not enough flights, especially to Thailand. According to Bravo Tours CEO Peder Hornhøj, many flights are sold out because the airline simply isn’t restarting.
He further predicts that cheaper destinations will become more dominant among Danes in the future, but for now people are giving a little extra when it comes to hotels and facilities on top of the pandemic.
