TALK BACK WHAT YOU’RE SAYING THIS WEEK


LETTER OF THE


WEEK


When are some tour operators and cruise companies going to come into the 21st century and not shut at lunchtime on Saturdays? Especially in peak season! Cases in point last Saturday (January 6) were Silversea and CV Travel, which both closed at 1pm. Archaic!


PETER COOKSON managing director, Spear Travels Travel Weekly would welcome responses from Silversea and CV Travel


Tourism minister churn does not help our sector


Story: Tourism minister John Glen gets reshuffled I am sorry that John Glen has moved on so soon, having just established a good working relationship with him. There seems to be a pattern of tourism ministers being moved as soon as they get to grips with their brief. I have dealt with at least six since running the B&B Association. And Matt Hancock is the sixth secretary of state at DCMS since 2010. How can any complex organisation work well with such frequent changes at the top?

Andy, can I p..p..pick you up on penguins!


Clia’s Andy Harmer says thrill-seekers can “mingle among penguins in the Arctic” (Comment, January 11). That will be tricky, as penguins live in the Antarctic and elsewhere in the southern hemisphere. Still, it’s interesting that two of his three bucket-list examples involve wildlife. That chimes with my experience of people enjoying wildlife holidays.

Snow cannons help sustain ski resorts


Comment: Reject fake snow, by Vicki Brown, Responsible Travel It sounds irresponsible not to promote ski resorts that use snow cannons. The livelihoods of the local population rely on the peak travel periods. If a ski resort doesn’t make money over the whole season, the local town may just disappear and all the inhabitants would have to find work elsewhere.

TWEETS THIS WEEK


Sign my petition to lift ban on flights to Sharm


As a member of cabin crew for a UK airline, I believe the ban on UK flights to Sharm el-Sheikh should be lifted. To this end, I have started a petition on the government’s website. The petition needs 100,000 signatures to be debated in Parliament. To sign the petition, please go to petition.parliament.uk/ petitions/202204. RYAN THOMAS

QUOTE OF THE


WEEK


“A big consideration was ‘how do we ensure this doesn’t turn into a riot in 30-odd airports around Europe and


threaten the safety of a lot of people?’”
