TUI is confident travel to Europe will be possible by mid-June, the firm's managing director Andrew Flintham said. “Cyprus have come out and been very positive, Greece and Turkey have come out and been very positive, and Spain again,” he told BBC Breakfast. "I think all these European countries, whilst to a degree are struggling with their rates at the moment, we are still a significant period away from the summer season properly opening up, we are probably 11 weeks away.”
