Thomson and First Choice introduce more regional routes

More regional flying in 2016 is been introduced by Thomson and First Choice including a new route to Aruba from Manchester.

Additional 10 and 11-night durations to Chania in Crete are also being made available from Manchester for summer 2016.

Catania in Italy, Hurghada in Egypt and Sal in Cape Verde are being introduced as new routes from Bristol airport together with the addition of 10 and 11 night durations to Rhodes.

Flights from will serve a new 330-room Thomson Sensatori resort in Rhodes which is due to open in May 2016.

The move is part of a strategy to ensure customers across the UK can fly from their local airport.

Thomson and First Choice aviation planning director Karen Switzer said: “Adding more capacity from Manchester and the introduction of a new route to Aruba in the Caribbean demonstrates our commitment to Manchester airport and the local area.

“We are pleased to be able to extend our long haul offering allowing our customers in the Manchester area to experience new destinations, travelling on our 787 Dreamliner.

“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.”

She added: “Adding more capacity from Bristol and the introduction of three brand new routes demonstrates our commitment to Bristol airport and the local area, and following the success of similar routes across a number of regional airports, we know that the demand is there.

The programme goes on sale on Thursday (April 23).
