A travel agent has 'exclusively chartered' flights from Glasgow Airport to Barbados to take customers 'door to door' on their dream holiday.

Around 300 passengers set off for a tropical cruise from the airport on Friday - with the help of Hays Travel.

Staff from the travel firm were on hand at the airport to help travellers navigate their way through the check-in process.

Fully escorted throughout by Hays Travel staff, the two-week cruise is on board P&O Cruises' Britannia, with highlights including the islands of Grenada, Aruba, St Marteen, and Antigua.
