A tourism authority is expecting a significant rise in visitor numbers to Tenerife – many of whom could relax for the duration of their stay at one of its luxury villas.
TTG Live reports the Tenerife Tourism Corporation is predicting a ten per cent surge in the amount of people holidaying on the Spanish island in 2011.
It believes new flight routes opened by budget carriers easyJet and Jet2.com will open up the Canaries to even more individuals.
Such confidence comes on the back of promising 2010 figures, which showed there was an 8.6 per cent hike in arrivals compared with the previous year.
And in November alone, more than 125,000 Britons travelled to Tenerife for a holiday, with an average stay in excess of a week, the news source notes.
Jet2.com recently told how Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez took a break on the island during a recent gap in the club's fixture list.
