UK holiday giant TUI is beefing up its holiday destination offer from Stansted airport next year as part of a major expansion.

Around 52,000 extra seats at the Essex airport will be taking passengers to destinations in countries such as Greece, Turkey and Tunisia as part of a 2m-seat boost at airports across the country.

Destinations from Stansted include Skiathos in Greece, Enfidha in Tunisia and Antalya and Dalaman in Turkey.

Stansted's Mats Sigurdson said the announcement was "great news" for holidaymakers. "With new routes to Skiathos and Enfidha launching, and even more flights on offer to Antalya and Dalaman in Turkey, I'm sure this exciting news will delight passengers right across the East of England and London eager to jet off on holiday from their local airport," he said.

TUI Airways flies to more than 88 destinations in 30 countries. It was the first airline in the UK to take delivery of Boeing's 787 Dreamliner.
