Market leader to extend Go tie-up

Market leader to extend Go tie-up

THOMSON is set to undercut rivals in the highly competitive short break market by striking a deal to take seats on British Airways' low-cost carrier Go.

The move follows a successful trial between the two companies when Thomson Breakaway used Go for its city break clients for six weeks earlier this summer.

A spokesman for Go said: "As a trial between May 25 and July 9, Thomson Breakaway sold packages which featured Go flights. As a result of this we are discussing follow-up activity."

The joint co-operation will enable Thomson to undercut its rivals in the highly competitive city-break market.

Stansted-based Go serves a range of major European cities, including Rome, Madrid, Copenhagen and Edinburgh.

A spokeswoman for Thomson Breakaway said the tie-up with Go was just one of a number of options being trialled to improve business.
