Thomas Cook Airlines has announced its full summer 2019 long haul programme is now on sale for flight-only and package holidays, including new flights to Montego Bay and more flights to Seattle, Orlando and Cancun.
The airline will also strengthen its core long-haul fleet with an Airbus A332.
The new aircraft will have fully refurbished premium and economy cabins, seat back in-flight entertainment and USB charging points.
Based at Manchester airport, it increases the Thomas Cook Group Airline fleet of A332s to eight and the group airline total long-haul fleet to 27.
Thomas Cook Airlines is Manchester airport’s largest long-haul carrier.
There are 720,000 long-haul seats on sale from Manchester for summer next year.
Seattle, which launched in May this year, will increase from two flights a week to three (the same frequency as San Francisco), Cancun will fly daily (same as New York) and 13 flights a week will go to Orlando at peak season, a growth of 21 per cent compared to summer 18.
Montego Bay is a brand new long-haul destination.
Henry Sunley, commercial director at Thomas Cook Airlines, said:
“In the past two years we have increased flights to destinations such as San Francisco, so we are pleased to grow Seattle following its inaugural flight earlier this year, and Orlando which we know is really popular with our customers.
“We have a fantastic summer season of long-haul flights ahead.
“Strengthening our core fleet is a really important part of delivering great experiences for our customers, so we are looking forward to operating a new A332 in the long-haul programme next year.”
