Flight bookings to the U.K. jumped considerably after the June 23 referendum vote to leave the European Union, according to travel data intelligence company ForwardKeys.

In the month after the Brexit vote, reservations to the U.K. were up 4.3% from the previous year. By comparison, in the month before the vote, flight reservations to the U.K. were off 2.8% compared to 2015, according to ForwardKeys.

The company attributed the booking influx to the sharp drop in the British pound after the vote.

Bookings from the U.S. were up 9.2%, bookings from Canada were up 7.4%, and bookings from the U.K. were up 5%.
