More Asian travellers coming to Europe to ski

Harrow-based group flight organiser, GTC Travel Group, is reporting a jump in demand for winter activity holidays in Europe and Canada from the Asia Pacific region.

With just over 30,000 seats booked this winter season, it says sales from the region have grown 15% with the biggest growth from the countries of India, Dubai and China.

GTC Travel Group, which works with a number of ski specialists, said the best-selling airport was Munich for resorts in Germany and Austria.

Flight to airports in Salzburg and Innsbruck have also sold well, followed by Calgary in Alberta.

"With the exponential growth of skiing and snow-boarding in Asia it's not surprising that enthusiasts will want to venture further afield to resorts in the West," said director Tahir Bhimani.
