Bookings already taken for winter 2016-2017 are 62 per cent up on this time last year.
In contrast, Tunisia has seen an 88 per cent reduction in British tourists this winter, with summer bookings 83 per cent down on 2015.
Forty-two per cent fewer Britons are visiting Egypt in the off-season, while summer reservations have fallen by 53 per cent. Turkey has seen 31 per cent fewer UK tourists this winter and will receive 27 per cent fewer in the summer. a
