Topflight boost in holiday bookings

TOPFLIGHT expects to boost profit this year, despite a tough trading environment.

The travel company says last season ended well, with a final rush to the ski slopes as a result of excellent conditions in March.

Topflight MD Tony Collins said summer 2013 advance bookings were also well up on last year.

"The high end of the markets in Lanzarote and Madeira are also doing well, indicating a return to good quality four and five-star hotels," Topflight said.

"Cruising and far-flung holidays are also on the up in Topflight's worldwide division with the Maldives, Dominican Republic, Cancun, Thailand and East Africa the buzz destinations for 2013."

Topflight has a three-day sale starting on Monday.
