New tour operator lands at Bournemouth Airport

3rd February 2014

A new tour operator - OSKA Travel - will be offering fantastic value holidays to Turkey from Bournemouth Airport this year.

Two holiday options will be available from Bournemouth including a seven night all-inclusive holiday to a 5-star hotel from just 449 per person, or a one week escorted tour around the Turkish Riviera, staying in 4/5 star hotels on a B&B basis from just 249 per person.

Paul Knight, Managing Director of Bournemouth Airport, said: "We are delighted to welcome OSKA Travel to Bournemouth Airport. Their holidays offer excellent value for money and I'm sure they will prove to be really popular with our passengers. We’re looking to provide more options and services for customers using our airport and this will extend our connections further into Europe."

OSKA Travel offer all-inclusive 5-star holidays in a choice of three 5-star hotels – the Vera Stone Palace in Side or the Maritim Pine Beach Resort and the Vera Verde Hotel in Belek. Both resorts have sandy beaches which slope gently into the sea and are enjoyed by visitors from around the world. Turkey was at the heart of the ancient world and the area provides a fascinating glimpse into the past, but also caters for the guests with a wealth of good restaurants, traditional markets and a lively nightlife.

Andreas F. Forsthuber of OSKA Travel said: “We are really excited to add a regional airport such as Bournemouth to our portfolio. At KENBA Group, the owner of OSKA Travel, we have handled more than 80,000 passengers from six different countries in 2012 and 2013. This high passenger volume together with the support we have experienced from the Turkish tourism industry gives us the opportunity to make low budget trips of a high standard available, and to give people the opportunity to fly to Turkey from nearer to home.

“We are really looking forward to welcoming guests from Bournemouth Airport in Turkey – and we are sure they will love this tour. It might well be their first – but it will definitely not be their last trip”.

OSKA also offer ‘Escorted Tour’ holidays which are the ideal choice for those who really want to explore the region. Holidaymakers can travel through the Taurus Mountains and visit Pamukkale - a UNESCO World Heritage site. Visitors can see a typical carpet village or the preserved ruins of Parga and enjoy a sightseeing tour of Antalya. Accommodation is on a B&B basis but a 'culture and luxury comfort' package is available at 125 per person which includes six evening meals, admission charges and guided tours to the sights.

Flights depart from Bournemouth Airport on the 10th, 17th and 24th April, and can be booked direct at or via your local branch of Bath Travel. The aircraft will land in Antalya, Turkey. OSKA Travel is a specialised tour operator with a focus on cultural roundtrips in the Mediterranean region and central Europe. All holidays are all ATOL protected.
