Skyscanner, the global travel search engine, has released its predictions of the destinations to watch for this coming year. The data included the analysis of millions of Skyscanner flight searches for the last three years in the UK, looking at the locations that had increased in interest the most dramatically.
The winner is Ponta Delgada in Portugal where the interest has increased 63% in recent years. Havana was the second one with a 33% increase in interest, while Tokyo came in number three with a 25% increase. Copenhagen was the fourth with a 21% increase and Cape Verde was number five with a 14% increase.
Cat McGloin, the Skyscanner travel editor, said “With 50 million searches to the site every month from all over the world, our search data gives us some really robust insight in to these trends. It’s interesting to see how people’s travel interests are changing and what these destinations are offering to become even more appealing.”
