Thomas Cook Airlines has today announced that it will operate a one-off flight to Cancun on its long haul Airbus A330 fleet next summer, on Tuesday 24th May 2016. Offering holidays for 14 nights, the flight returns from Cancun on 7th June and adds another long haul destination from the airline to its Cardiff service next year. Last year, Thomas Cook Airlines announced flights to Orlando on 28th August 2015 and 25th May 2016, both offering 14 night holidays to this popular destination.
Henry Sunley, Thomas Cook Airline’s Head of Sales, said, “It’s great news for our customers in the South Wales and West of England region that we’re able to offer another long haul flight from Cardiff Airport, building on the demand for our Orlando flights which we announced last year. “Like our other long haul routes, the Cancun flight will feature one of our new refurbished fleet, with our new Premium service, ensuring our customers experience a great range of services, flying in style to their summer holiday.
Our long haul flights in 2016 will also give ever better value for families with the abolition of APD for the under 16’s travelling in economy.” Spencer Birns, Aviation Business Development Director at Cardiff Airport said; “There is big demand for long haul flights and Mexico has always been a popular holiday destination as has Orlando. It is great to see Thomas Cook Airlines showing their commitment to serving Wales by adding another flight in 2016 and we’re pleased our customers are being offered more travel options from Cardiff Airport.” Thomas Cook Airlines has recently released further details of its new cabin experience for customers on its Airbus A330 long haul fleet, with brand new Economy and Premium services.
