Just one in ten people have said they will consider postponing a planned holiday as a result of the disruption.The International Air Transport Association yesterday (April 28th) praised the efforts of the European Commission in providing relief to the air transport sector in the wake of the disruption.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Maplast_img read more
