TUI UK has announced Agadir, Morocco as a new destination for summer 2020 from Newcastle International Airport.
The new flight to Moroccan favourite Agadir gives customers even more choice when booking next year’s summer holiday. The first TUI flight from Newcastle to Agadir will depart on 7th May 2020 and will operate once a week on a Thursday.
This destination has nine kilometres of golden sandy beaches with crystal clear waters. The city centre has plenty of Moroccan charm with colourful bazaars and souks to explore.
Customers from the North East can now experience more of what TUI has to offer with Agadir home to a range of fantastic hotels with something for everyone.
The 4T+ RIU Palace Tikida Beach is an adults-only platinum hotel, perfectly located on Agadir’s sandy beach. The hotel will be rebranding to the TUI Sensimar Tikida Beach later this year ready for the new flight route from Newcastle next summer.
With kids’ clubs for four to 17 years old packed full of fun activities, the 4Sun RIU Tikida Dunas hotel is perfect for families to book through First Choice. The hotel has four pools to choose from and a range of restaurants.
