Thinking about booking your holiday on Tuesday? So is everyone else

EASYJET has revealed that next Tuesday (Jan 10) is the biggest day of the year for booking flights and summer getaways.

January is traditionally the busiest month of the year for airline bookings as people beat the New Year blues and secure an early summer bargain. This research reveals that more people travelling from Stansted will book with easyJet on the second Tuesday of the month than any other day of the year.

Hugh Aitken, easyJet’s UK commercial manager, commented: “By early January, when the party season is over and the big chill really kicks in, most people see booking a holiday to sunnier climes as the perfect antidote to the dark winter days.

“The most popular holiday hot spots this year from Stansted are likely to be Malaga and Alicante along with traditional city break favourites Amsterdam and Copenhagen.”

To offer those passengers booking early from Stansted the best prices possible to the widest choice of destinations, easyJet has launched its big January sale today (6 January) with up to 20% off all seats across Europe for summer 2012.

Aitken continues: “Northerners, and particularly the Scottish, are most savvy when it comes to booking earliest to secure the best deals on flights and holidays for the summer months. With the launch of the sale this morning we hope to encourage passengers in the South to put a little bit of sunshine back into their lives and plan ahead to secure a holiday bargain for 2012.”
