Crete and Mallorca - two new summer surprises from MALÉV
Friday 14, May 2010
This summer Malév is integrating two charter flights into its scheduled timetable. The airline is targeting individual travellers who prefer to book their own accommodation and plan their own holiday programmes.
The addition of the capital of Crete, Heraklion, and Palma de Mallorca extend still further the list of Malév's hit summer destinations. The airline's services to Split, Malaga and St. Petersburg are already extremely popular with Hungarian passengers; Malév reckons that the two new destinations will soon become equally popular and the 20 tickets available for each flight will quickly find buyers. The airline is making a total of 1200 seats available on the once-a-week flights running from mid-June to the end of September. Of course, the majority of seats are reserved by travel agencies for their own package programmes.
Crete and Mallorca
Crete is one of the most popular European summer destinations, offering the perfect blend of culture and relaxation. The largest island in Greece is famous for the Palace of Knossos, renowned Cretan hospitality, its charming villages, gorgeous beaches and unequalled natural attractions such as Samaria, Europe's longest gorge.
Mallorca is the popular Spanish island of unclouded relaxation and unforgettable excursions, a true paradise for beachgoers. Aside from the sandy seashore, Mediterranean restaurants and fun nightlife, a holiday here is spiced with plenty of sights, for instance Palma Cathedral, Bellver Castle, the Palma-Soler railway and Dragon Cave.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
