Summer starts at Birmingham Airport as thousands of holiday makers flock to the amazing new destinations launched this week by Thomas Cook.
Its summer 2017 programme features exclusive flights from £35 one-way to Comiso in Sicily and from £49 one-way to the Greek island of Lesbos. A new Sentido, the Acacia Marina, also opens this week in Sicily with seven-night packages starting from £486pp based on two people sharing.
Also this week there are new flights starting to Naples (£39) and Malta (£49) and the immensely popular James Martin meals are relaunched with an amazing summer menu featuring mouth-watering treats like slow-braised balsamic beef and roast chicken breast available on board.
Aviation director for Thomas Cook, James Burrows, said: “This is a really exciting year for us at Birmingham, with great new routes for both independent travellers and package holiday customers.
“Together with Birmingham International Airport, we’re going to more and more great holiday destinations to give our customers the choice they deserve for their hard-earned holidays.”
William Pearson, Aviation Director of Birmingham Airport said: “We are delighted that Thomas Cook has launched these new flights from Birmingham Airport. The airline is not only offering more capacity on popular leisure routes but also introducing a brand new destination from Birmingham to Comiso which means passengers can now visit the beautiful island of Sicily from the Midlands. Thomas Cook is an established airline that offers something for all passengers, from flight only to all-inclusive holidays and we welcome its decision to expand from Birmingham.”
