Closure[edit] On 24 May 2010, British Sky Broadcasting
British Sky Broadcasting
announced that they will close Sky Travel and the associated website on 24 June due to intense competition from the internet. A Sky spokesman said, “It was a difficult decision as the team has delivered a great product but the internet, rather than linear TV, has become the main channel for holiday retailing. In a competitive market, we will continue to focus on our core strategy of doing fewer things but better.” Sky Travel closed at 11pm on 24th June 2010.[1][2] See also[edit]
