Brits stay closer to home after ash cloud chaos

Brits are holidaying closer to home to avoid future flight disruptions, according to research by Skyscanner.After European skies were closed for five days last week, Skyscanner, a low-cost flight website, examined pre and post-volcano flight search data to find that flights in London and Belfast had risen in popularity. British favourites Malaga and Alicante held the top two positions and Amsterdam fell to eighth.”Many people were caught out by the volcano disruption leading to lengthy delays and added expense. It’s possible that more people are looking at ‘safer’ destinations for their May Day holidays”, said Skyscanner Co-Founder and Market Development Director Barry Smith.Here is the full post-volcano list and how many positions they have moved up or down:1.Malaga [0]2.Alicante [0]3.Palma [+1]4.Dublin [+4]5.London [+5]6.Dalaman [+1]7.Tenerife [-1]8.Amsterdam [+5]9.Faro [-4]10.Belfast [new entry]
