Skyscanner names Malta as number one destination for Britons in 2017

Global travel search site Skyscanner has named Malta as the number one destination for Britons to spend their holidays in next year.

Skyscanner claims that there is a growing trend among British holidays-makers to look for multiple weekend and short break destinations, putting Malta at the top of the list.

According to Skyscanner, flight searches to Malta grew by 59% in between January and October 2016 when compared to the same period the previous year, and with direct flights servicing more than 10 UK airports, Skyscanner said 'there is more to Malta than just sun and sand'.
