British Airways has predicted ten destinations it expects to be most popular with travellers in 2010. Long-haul hotspots, such as the Maldives, Delhi and Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, featured in the list. Cape Town is one of the host cities for the Fifa World Cup in the summer, and can expect to welcome many British visitors as a result. Las Vegas, New York and Vancouver are expected to be the most popular North American destinations in 2010. Closer to home, Stockholm, Dubrovnik and Istanbul are predicted to be popular with tourists. Head of UK and Ireland sales for British Airways, Richard Tams, said: 'Customers recognise that there's a world of opportunity out there – from tiger safari in India, to the Fifa World Cup in South Africa and the bright lights of Las Vegas. 'In 2010, holidaymakers will have more choice of beach destinations than ever, especially with our new services to Punta Cana, Sharm el Sheikh and the Maldives. '
