As a result of the increasing demand for long haul from Glasgow Airport from travelers in Scotland, Thomas Cook Airlines’ has announced new routes to Cancun and Barbados for winter 2015. The airline will also extend its Las Vegas programme (launched on 4th May 2015) to operate weekly on Mondays continuing up to 4th January 2016 - and then double the number of flights to this great destination in the summer of 2016 – whilst also increasing the number of summer flights to Orlando.
The Cancun and Barbados services will feature the new Economy and Premium cabins on the refurbished A330 aircraft. This great news follows the announcement last year of new flights to Holguin and Varadero in Cuba from Glasgow Airport during the coming winter months.
Christoph Debus, Chief Airlines and Hotels Officer for the Thomas Cook Group said, “Following the great success of our new Las Vegas flight, we are really pleased to announce new routes this winter to Cancun and Barbados with an even better service with more flights to Las Vegas and Orlando next summer. This is truly great news for the Scottish long haul traveller heading to the Caribbean and the USA. ”
Francois Bourienne, commercial director at Glasgow Airport, said, “The introduction of Thomas Cook Airlines direct flights to Cancun and Barbados this winter not only demonstrates its commitment to Glasgow Airport, it highlights the demand for these popular sunshine destinations. We are looking forward to working with Thomas Cook Airlines to develop these services and to further grow the airline’s presence at Glasgow.”
