Standard Life may be taking profit like some of the rest of have, but agree that that may have suppressed price over recent days/weeks
Return of Gambian packages minor cost but massive PR opportunity for TC especially while the terrible case of the Tunisian massacre all over the news. Gambia maycost TC less than £300k to put into context.
All of this will be offset if TC reports strong winter and summer 17 bookings which the industry is alluding too. Some say +7% v last year in UK
There is a 90 day state of emergency in Gambia and the foreign office has advised against all but essential travel there due to political unrest and the possibility of military intervention. TC have approx 1000 holiday makers there whom they are returning home via additional flights over the next 48 hours. TC also have approx 2500 flight only customers there whom they are contacting to offer the earliest possible flight availability to return to the UK. Gambia is not a big market as such for TC but nevertheless it is now one less holiday destination for customers and the cost to TC of the additional flights etc is something they could have done without.!! Interesting to see how the SP will be affected by this.
