Cheap flights carrier bmibaby has said that May and June are among the best months to book flights to European destinations such as Alicante and the Algarve.
That is because the sunshine destinations offer warm weather and empty beaches because the school holidays have yet to begin.
Bmibaby’s flights to Alicante are expected to prove particularly popular, with the Spanish destination offering a number of beaches in close proximity to the city.
"Playa del Postiguet boasts 900m of golden sand and is consistently awarded the Blue Flag Award for cleanliness," the airline commented.
Elsewhere, bmibaby recommends booking flights to the Algarve as the region is "home to some of Europe’s prettiest beaches".
Majorca, Menorca and Malaga are also recommended by the airline, with the airline flying to the popular summer holiday destinations from a number of UK airports including Manchester, Birmingham and East Midlands.
Bmibaby launched new flights to Toulouse from Manchester on March 29th.
The airline has said that it expects to transport approximately 26,000 passengers between the two cities during the peak summer season.
