Thomas Cook News Update: New Flights Added to Stansted Airport
Thomas Cook news update: in an agreement with Stansted Airport, Thomas Cook will be adding eight new destinations for current and new flights from June 2014.
Destinations that are set to be added to Thomas Cook’s list of flights include: Corfu, Fuerteventura, Heraklion, Izmir, Kefalonia, Kos, Rhodes and Skiathos. To accommodate all of these, Thomas Cook have decided to upgrade their planes. The Airbus A320 will be ditched with double the number of the larger capacity A321s taking its place and this should increase the number of weekly flights between Stansted and the most popular destinations.
“Rob Thompson, Thomas Cook Airlines’ director of planning, said: ‘Our growing partnership with London Stansted is great news for those holidaymakers in the east and south east of England looking for an airline and airport closer to home to help them travel to more destinations.
‘We believe that this area of the country is currently underserved with respect of airport departures to holiday destinations and that demand exists to make our partnership with the airport a continued success.
‘With more flights, more holidays and a more frequent service to the most popular resorts, next summer is set to bring an unprecedented Thomas Cook holiday atmosphere to Stansted.’
The airport’s managing director, Andrew Harrison, added: ‘Today’s announcement by Thomas Cook is excellent news for Stansted and our passengers and another significant step on the road to providing more choice to more destinations from the airport than ever before.
‘Under new ownership, we have very ambitious plans for Stansted, including an £80m re-vamp of the award-winning terminal to transform the passenger experience and services, and to compete for and attract new routes, airlines and passengers in the London market.
‘This new agreement with Thomas Cook demonstrates their confidence in M.A.G to deliver great value and quality service at Stansted. There is huge demand for air travel in our catchment area, and we know people prefer to fly from their local airport when possible, so this fantastic news is a real positive development in providing more choice and more flights to even more destinations for passengers in London and the eastern region.’
From June 2014, Thomas Cook Airlines will serve 18 destinations from Stansted, carrying over 150,000 passengers a year.”
