Gold Medal has reported a 289% increase in forward 2017 summer holiday sales year-on-year to Vietnam and a 294% increase to Abu Dhabi compared to the same period in 2016.
The leap in sales for Vietnam can be partly explained by the new UK non-stop services to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam) from Heathrow with Vietnam airlines.
Abu Dhabi continues to go from strength to strength for the specialist long haul operator with 22 properties featured in the Gold Medal brochure this year.
Other popular summer 2017 destinations for the long haul operator include Sri Lanka, Barbados and Indonesia with 215%, 180% and 145% sales increases respectively.
Agents who book any Abu Dhabi holiday flying with Etihad Airways with Gold Medal before 16 July 2017 will be entered into a prize draw to win a VIP Abu Dhabi holiday including business class flights and five nights half board at the Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi.
Agents must send their booking references to email@example.com by 18 July 2017 to enter the prize draw.
