First seat-only programme from London Gatwick to Barbados

In line with its strategy to grow seat-only sales, Thomas Cook Airlines has announced its first seat-only flight to Barbados from London Gatwick.

As it approaches the start of its pioneering London Gatwick to Cape Town seat only programme, this new announcement of seat only flights to Barbados in Winter 17 opens up a great opportunities for south of England Thomas Cook Airlines customers and complements existing services from its Manchester hub.

The flights, which will use one of seven Airbus A330s, will offer both premium and economy cabins on what has traditionally been a package holiday-focused route.

James Burrows, aviation director at Thomas Cook Airlines, said: ““We were the first airline to open up a direct service to Cape Town outside Heathrow, and we’re extending our seat-only offering for our southern England customers to make Barbados more accessible than ever with to those who want quality but are also cost conscious.”

“More widely, this follows our £100 million upgrade of cabins, our seventh direct route from Manchester to the USA, and the trial of our fantastic pre-order duty free service, Airshoppen. So our growth into the seat only market for customers who want quality service at an affordable price is continuing well.”

Flights are on sale now and the programme runs from 16th December 2017 to 17th March 2018. Return tickets start from Economy £449.98, Premium £639.98.
