(E) New flights from Glasgow to Pula

 

City gets more sunshine flights

FLYGLOBESPAN today unveiled new sunshine flights from Glasgow Airport. The Scots budget airline announced the city's first scheduled flights to the increasingly popular Croatian hotspot of Pula.
And it said it would also lay on budget scheduled services to family favourite Menorca. Both services will operate weekly from May to October to cater for the holiday trade. They bring the total number of destinations offered by flyglobespan from Glasgow this year to 20. One-way flights to the Menorcan capital Mahon will cost Ā£35.99, while Pula fares will be Ā£59.99, including taxes. Flyglobespan chairman Tom Dalrymple said: "These are two exciting new destinations for our customers.
"We've always had a strong presence in Majorca so adding a Menorca flight seems very logical.
"We are delighted to add Pula to our destinations. The Croatian holiday market is really booming and I'm sure these flights will prove popular."
Pula is at the top of the Adriatic, at the heart of some of Europe's most stunning coastal scenery.
Glasgow already has direct flights to Dubrovnik, further down the Dalmatian coast.
Flyglobespan said it would also offer the new routes from Edinburgh Airport.
And sales of its new daily flights from Glasgow to Orlando are continuing to boom, sparking talk in industry circles of more transatlantic services. Bosses at Glasgow Airport are eager for good news, as the airport lost its lifeline business link to Brussels last week. Its interim managing director, Alan Barr, said: "The addition of Pula is sure to attract even more interest in flights to Croatia. We're confident Mahon will also prove a popular family holiday destination."
