Snowbirds flocking to the Canaries

We’ve been watching the geese fly south for winter and so are we, the snowbirds flocking to the Canaries.

Word comes to us from our friends in the seven islands that there has been a rush to renest there from our own cuckoo islands.

There are 2,713,621 scheduled airline seats from the UK to the Canaries this winter, a 30% rise from pre-Covid 2019/20.

And in Ireland there are 289,063 scheduled airline seats to Las Islas Canarias this winter.

And that’s a 38% spike in capacity from winter three years ago.
