Tui is to launch a new flight from Newcastle International to Agadir in Morocco for summer 2020.
The Agadir service will start on 7 May 2020 and will operate once per week on Thursdays. The move takes Tui’s destinations from Newcastle up to 25 for summer 2020.
Karen Switzer, Tui’s UK and Ireland director of aviation planning, said: “We are really pleased to be adding Agadir to the summer 2020 programme from Newcastle airport.
“We are always looking to add routes to the programme that we know our customers will enjoy and we’re delighted to be providing holidaymakers with even more choice and the opportunity to experience our wide range of hotel concepts and great destinations from their local airport.”
Tui offers a range of hotels in the Agadir area including the adults-only Riu Palace Tikida Beach, which will be rebranded as the Tui Sensimar Tikida Beach later this year.
Richard Knight, chief operating officer at Newcastle International, added: “Morocco offers an exciting new destination option for our passengers and I’m sure that the wide choice of resorts, fantastic weather and Blue Flag beaches will be a real hit with the North East travelling public.”
