In October the number of travelers served differs by 17% if compared with the corresponding month in 2019 and generated revenues only by 12% from the results we have achieved in October 2019. The start of the last quarter of this year also distinguishes with growing numbers of early booking sales. Tourism market is gradually returning to usual holiday planning in advance and last-minute sales are declining. People are planning their future trips for the winter season, the number of inquiries for the summer holidays of 2022 is also increasing. Another positive news – long-haul destinations are returning to the market in October. All long-haul destinations were closed since the beginning of the pandemic and in October our first group of travelers went on holidays to Mexican resorts”, says Audronė Keinytė, head of “Novaturas” group.
In October, the company has increased its winter holiday season program.
