Crystal Holidays are delighted to offer new direct flights from Leeds Bradford and East Midlands airports to Verona in Italy in their Lakes & Mountains 2009 preview brochure, on sale from today.

If you love sightseeing, exploring open countryside and being active, then our new ‘Taste of Austrian Winter’ package offer an abundance of choices. Many of the summer resorts are also open in winter, hence the introduction of ‘Winter Activity’ holidays in the new brochure to be taken during winter time. The resorts recommended are St Wolfgang and Seefeld in Austria. Have a horse-drawn or reindeer sleigh ride, try snowshoeing, ice-curling, drive a snow mobile or maybe visit the Christmas Market in Salzburg city and drink a glass of ‘advent cup’ also known as hot punch.

Product, planning and yield director Gareth Crump, said “we are delighted to expand our regional flying programme by offering direct flights from Leeds Bradford and East Midlands airports to Verona in Italy for our highly successful Italian Lakes programme. Crystal already offers the largest choice of lakes and mountains holidays and because everyone’s tastes are different, we think, everyone’s holiday should be too.
