Following the recent launch of the Thomas Cook Group’s unification of its brands and one common symbol, the ‘Sunny Heart’, Thomas Cook Airlines has announced that its first Airbus A321 (MSN5872) is in final assembly at the Airbus Hamburg plant.
The 215-seat aircraft will enter service in mid-December. It is the second of the 23 new Airbus A321s to be delivered to the Thomas Cook Group Airlines by 2016, previously announced in early 2013. Sister German airline took delivery of the initial plane in May 2013.
The world’s oldest holiday operator is placing great emphasis of a new seat designed and manufactured especially for the group by Recaro. Designed to help the aircraft’s fuel efficiency and improve safety the seats are lighter but retain comfort through the use of foam material. A totally new kind of seat cover made from a mixture of genuine and artificial leather has been designed and developed exclusively for Thomas Cook and will ensure longevity.
MSN5872 is also the first Airbus aircraft in the Thomas Cook Group to be fitted with wing-tip Sharklets which help the aircraft fly using less fuel, contributing to an overall fuel efficiency of up to 6% compared to the existing aircraft in the fleet. www.flythomascook.com
