easyJet help to get British troops home
Tuesday 17, August 2010
easyJet has today launched a special rescue fare for British troops who are being delayed coming home from the front line.
Those traveling via Cyprus can go to one of the island’s two airports (Paphos and Larnaca), between six to two hours before an easyJet flight and purchase a ‘rescue rate’ ticket.
Tickets will be priced at £43 and will include a kitbag at no extra charge.
Paul Simmons, UK General Manager said: “This is about getting our troops home as soon as possible if things go wrong with their intended travel plans. The special time with friends and family is vital to those serving in the forces and we’re happy that we can help in some small way.”
Paphos – London Gatwick, Luton, Bristol and Manchester
Larnaca – London Gatwick
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.
