ATA promotes inaugeral flight Gatwick Faro


No âmbito da nova rota Gatwick-Faro operada pela Aer Lingus, a partir de 26 de Abril, a Associação Turismo do Algarve (ATA), em parceria com a sua agência de Relações Publicas no Reino Unido – Hills Balfour Synergy, a delegação do AICEP de Londres e a companhia aérea irlandesa, promove uma mega visita educacional com agentes do sector e jornalistas britânicos.

Recorde-se que a Aer Lingus vai passar a efectuar dois voos diários para Londres. Numa altura em que se assiste à retracção de investimentos por parte de agentes turísticos internacionais, a ATA saúda o esforço da Aer Lingus e congratula-se com abertura desta nova operação para Faro, a qual oferece novas possibilidades para os turistas do principal mercado emissor para o Algarve.
