Specialists peg 2000 fares at 1999 levels

SEAT-ONLY specialists Globespan and Bluebird have launched their summer 2000 flight programmes to Canada.

Both are pegging fares at this year's levels until the end of the summer '99 season, when fares are expected to rise.

The flying programmes remain virtually the same as 1999, though Bluebird is currently reducing deposits from £75 to £29 to encourage agents to attract early bookings on viewdata. Bluebird will serve seven Canadian cities from six UK airports on Canada 3000 charters with return fares from £249, including all taxes.

Managing director Stephen Powell said he expected 2000 rates to increase slightly more than inflation during the peak season. He added: "This is good for the industry but we are still seeing silly prices in the low season because there is still far too much capacity on both charter and scheduled routes."

Globespan is offering charter flights on Transat from 12 UK airports to five Canadian destinations, with return fares from £211 to Toronto, excluding taxes.
