Thomas Cook scheduled

Whilst still carrying the image of the old charter airlines Thomas Cook has been steadily building up its routes as a scheduled carrier, albeit mainly carrying leisure passengers.

From June 2014 it will replace a single Airbus A320 with a pair of the larger A321s to its Stansted line-up and introduce Corfu, Fuerteventura, Heraklion, Izmir, Kefalonia, Kos, Rhodes and Skiathos – as well as increasing frequency to popular resorts.

Rob Thompson, Thomas Cook Airline’s 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”.

Thomas Cook currently operates nine A320 series aircraft and plans to add 10 A321s from 2014 onwards, replacing elderly Boeing 757s. www.flythomascook.com
