flights to the sun

Lonely Planet (UK) - - Globetrotter -

WHAT WILL A BRI­TISH WIN­TER BRING: a white Christ­mas, late warmth or a soggy mess? For those not keen to hang around to find out, Bri­tish Air­ways is ex­pand­ing its net­work of south­bound flights (ba.com). From late Oc­to­ber, BA’s ser­vices from Heathrow to Palma de Mal­lorca, Málaga and Palermo go from sum­mer only to year­round. Tener­ife-bound trav­ellers can now add Heathrow to their list of start­ing points, while Paphos in Cyprus sees its flights from Gatwick go beyond peak sun­lounger sea­son. Man­cu­ni­ans, mean­while, can jump on a new ser­vice to Agadir on Morocco’s south­ern coast with Air Ara­bia Maroc (airara­bia.com).

26 IT MAY TAKE SOME LUCK, but if you land a book­ing at this tree­house in At­lanta, Ge­or­gia, you’ll be in good com­pany: it’s been named as the world’s most wished-for Airbnb list­ing. Two guests can en­joy this mag­i­cal space, with a bed­room, liv­ing room and deck linked by fairy-lit walk­ways (from £235; airbnb.co.uk/rooms/1415908). If the Deep South is too far to go for a tree­top stay, there are plenty of choices closer to home. For starters, try the two cab­ins at Brook House Woods in Here­ford­shire (tree­houses from £260 for two nights; brook­house­woods.com), or Tree Howf in Perthshire, built around an an­cient ash tree (from £175 for two nights; craig­head­howf.co.uk). Lonely Planet Trav­eller Good news for fans of spread­able yeast ex­tract. Ear­lier this year, Lon­don City Air­port re­vealed that jars of Mar­mite are the most-con­fis­cated item from hand lug­gage. For one day over the sum­mer, staff at the se­cu­rity gates swapped any 100ml jar for a plane­friendly 70ml. Now, given the suc­cess of the project, Mar­mite is pon­der­ing whether to roll out the scheme na­tion­wide. Give them a nudge on Twit­ter: @mar­mite.
