The article presents information on 6% increase in sales of flight consolidator JTA Travel Group in long-haul flights in the first two months of the year 2009. JTA's managing director Wayne Darrock said the growth was at the expense of the eurozone as customers avoid these countries due to the weak pound. Darrock said New York, Sydney and Dubai are the top-selling destinations in the long-haul market.
