rijswijk/kos - Dozens of Dutch holidaymakers break their holiday on Kos early after the earthquake on Thursday evening. They want to leave because they are afraid. Travel Organization TUI has sent a bigger plane on Saturday than usual to the Greek island, so that all those who want to return home earlier have the opportunity.
'The vast majority of the 2700 people who booked with us just finish the vacation,' said a spokeswoman from TUI Nederland. Extra flights are not available. People who want to return earlier can say for 150 euros per person with a regular flight. How many people have chosen that exactly, TUI could not say Saturday night.
The fact that they have to pay has put an evil blood among some tourists. 'I understand that it's very frightening to face an earthquake. But this is not a profitable situation, 'says TUI spokeswoman. 'Anxiety is very subjective. We just follow the disaster fund and travel advice of foreign affairs. 'And for Kos, no negative travel advice applies.
