Maldives a top destination for athletes
Maldives Promotion House – It seems that British athletes will be going from the podium to the sun and beach. According to a recent survey Maldives is among the top destinations for British athletes for travel after London 2012 Olympics games.
British Airways asked a number of Team GB and ParalympicsGB athletes about their holiday plans post September. Far from having a relaxing break, the results showed that many of the athletes will be seeking sun and fun following weeks and months of gruelling schedules.
The top destinations chosen by Team GB and ParalympicsGB athletes included America, Spain, Greece, Thailand, Australia, France, as well as holidays in the Maldives.
British Airways flies direct to Maldives and provides a wide range of holiday packages.
Richard Tams, British Airways Head of Sales and marketing for UK and Ireland, said: “We’ve seen a slight increase in late summer bookings this year, due to many holidaymakers staying at home to support our athletes during the London 2012 Games. The good news is that there are still lots of late bargains to be had.
