The new tour operator “Join Up Baltic” announces its destinations for summer season 2023. It offers three most popular destinations for Latvian, Lithuanian and Estonian travelers - resort in Turkey, Heraklion in Crete, Greece and Egypt with direct flights from Riga, Vilnius and Tallinn. “Join Up Baltic” is the first tour operator to offer tours to Egypt also in summer to Sharm El Sheikh from Vilnius and Tallinn, starting from May.
All “Join Up Baltic” tour flights will be performed by its own airline - “SkyUp Airlines”, which has a high 96,7% punctuality rate. Currently the tour operator is the only one in Baltics which performs its flights with their own airline, and one aircraft is based in Vilnius and Tallinn.
“We offer specific travel destinations in Baltic States based on two factors. First, our portfolio includes travel destinations that are the most loved and demanded by travelers here. Secondly, as our strategic target is to become one of the leading tour operators in Baltic States, we offer those destinations where we have the greatest experience and strong and outstanding partners: hotels and local tourism companies. That means we can guarantee the best travel experience for our clients,” says Sabina Saikovskaja, CEO of “Join Up Baltic”. “During our first 7 months of operations in Baltics we have attentively observed the needs and wishes of Baltic travelers and have adjusted our offer and services based on them. Our priority is to provide the best quality of product and service.”
By offering tours to Egypt in summer “Join Up Baltic” is expanding the selection of summer destinations for Baltic travelers. Tours to Egypt, Sharm El Sheikh from Vilnius and Tallinn are available once a week, starting from May and during the whole summer. Join UP!™ brand has been flying to Egypt also in Summer since 2014 with good results and feedback from clients. “The weather in Egypt does not differ much from the weather in Turkey which is the number one destination for Baltic markets. It is hot but more dry in Egypt, so it is enjoyable in summer months as well, and what is important - Egypt offers a good quality of service for a good price,” says Sabina Saikovskaja. “We are sure Baltic travelers will be happy to rediscover Egypt in summer and it will become one of the top destinations here.”
“Join Up Baltic” works under the largest Ukrainian tour operators' Join UP!™ brand which has 12 years of experience in tourism.
