Summer 2010 now on sale

After a long wait The Travel Times, The World Travel Blog is pleased to announce that the major UK tour operators launched their Summer 2010 brochures this week.

Summer brochures for the following year are normally released in May, but this year were postponed until now due to the economic crisis.

Thomson, First Choice, Thomas Cook and Airtours are all now on sale and the smaller independent tour operators are sure to follow suit shortly.

The Travel Times World Travel Blog understands today that an Air France passenger jet carrying 228 people and 12 crew has gone missing. The jet dropped off the radar over the Atlantic coast of Brazil, a Paris airport official confirmed.

"We are very worried," he said. "The plane disappeared from the screens several hours ago.

"It could be a transponder problem, but this kind of fault is very rare and the plane did not land when expected."

Contact was lost with the plane – flight AF447 at 6am GMT after it took off from Rio heading for Paris. It was due to land in the French capital at 9.10am GMT. Airport authorities have set up a 'crisis cell' at Charles de Gaulle.

British Nuns Arrested In Crete

It has been reported in the British media today that 17 men from Bristol appeared in a Crete court for dressing as Nuns.

The men also wearing ladies underwear were on a night out as part of a football tour, when they were arrested and spent a night in a prison cell on bank holiday Monday.

Ranging in age from late teens to early 60's the shocked tourists were arrested for causing scandal and misrepresenting a uniform. Charges were later dropped and the Nuns ran free to enjoy the rest of their holiday.
