HOLIDAYMAKERS are being offered the opportunity to fly to Turkey from Bournemouth Airport this spring.

The announcement that tour operator OSKA Travel will be offering flights to Antalya in April comes less than two weeks after Ryanair announced Crete would also be added to their destination list.

Paul Knight, managing director of Bournemouth Airport, said the flights will prove a hit with customers.

“Their holidays are excellent value for money and I'm sure they will prove to be really popular with our passengers.

“We're looking to provide more options and services for customers using our airport and this will extend our connections further into Europe.”
