Thomson and First Choice increase capacity from Norwich airport and introduce a new route for local holiday makers.

Thomson and First Choice are pleased to announce that in summer 2015 they will be increasing capacity at Norwich airport through the introduction of a new route to Mahon, Menorca. The plans for summer 2015 also include the addition of a further weekly flight for existing route Dalaman, Turkey.

The move to introduce this new route is part of the UK’s largest tour operator’s strategy to ensure customers across the UK can fly from their local airport and stay at the best hotels in some of the most exciting destinations. The new route went on sale on the 24th April.

Not only will customers from the Norwich area now be able to fly to the beautiful island of Menorca, but they will now also have the opportunity to choose varying durations in Turkey - not just the standard seven and 14 night stays thanks to an additional flight to Dalaman.

Customers travelling from Norwich will now also have access to some of Thomson and First Choice’s most popular flagship hotels. These include the brand new for summer 2015 Thomson Sensatori Resort Fethiye in Turkey’s Dalaman region as well as the already popular First Choice Holiday Village Menorca. The new build Sensatori Resort Fethiye will offer an amazing pool scene, gourmet dining, action packed activities, an ultra-relaxing spa and extensive facilities for families, and promises to be as luxurious as neighbouring Sensatori Resort Turkey in Side.

Karen Switzer, Director of Aviation Planning for Thomson and First Choice, said of the move: “Adding additional capacity from Norfolk and the introduction of a new route to Menorca demonstrates our commitment to Norwich Airport and the local area, and following the success of the additional summer 2014 flights, we know that further demand is there.

“Expanding access to our portfolio of destinations and hotels is a key part of our overall strategy and we hope that this move will enhance the holiday experience for our customers.”

Andrew Bell, Chief Executive of Norwich International Airport, said, “Our objective is to provide an ever increasing range of top quality holiday destinations and product to the holidaymakers in our region. Working closely with Thomson and First Choice, we are making good progress in achieving this.”

Thomson and First Choice re-launch flights from Humberside airport
Thomson and First Choice are also pleased to announce that in summer 2015 they will be once again offering flights from Humberside Airport, with the launch of a new route to the beautiful island of Majorca.

The flights will leave on a Tuesday at 15:30 local time and will give sun seekers from Humberside and the surrounding area the chance to visit Palma and other resorts such as Magaluf, Porto Pollensa and Port Soller on the island from their doorstep.

The move to introduce this new route is part of the UK’s largest tour operator’s strategy to ensure customers across the UK can fly from their local airport and stay at the best hotels in some of the most exciting destinations. The new route went on sale on the 24th April.

Local sun seekers will also now be able to join Thomson Cruises itineraries that leave from Palma direct from Humberside Airport. The route will also mean that customers travelling from Humberside Airport can now visit some Thomson and First Choice’s flagship properties including the First Choice Holiday Village Majorca and the Thomson Couples Protur Playa Cala Millor.

Karen Switzer said of the move: “We are delighted to be launching flights direct from Humberside Airport. This new route to Palma demonstrates our commitment to the local area, and following the success of similar routes across a number of regional airports, we know that the demand is there.

“Expanding access to our portfolio of destinations and hotels is a key part of our overall strategy and we hope that this move will enhance the holiday experience for our customers.”

Paul Litten Humberside Airport’s Commercial Director, said: “Humberside International Airport is delighted that one of the UK’s most popular holiday specialists, Thomson, has decided to return to the airport after a three year absence. Our customers have been asking for more services from their local airport and we know that the first route announced, Palma in Majorca, is in great demand with local holiday-makers. We will continue to work with Thomson to develop other opportunities in the future.”
