Thomson and First Choice announced a new programme of flights for summer season. Thomson and First Choice returned to Humberside Airport for the first time since 2011 with a new programme of flights launched to Palma, Majorca.
The new route is part of the UK’s largest tour operator’s strategy to ensure customers can fly conveniently from their local airports. Palma is the capital of Majorca and gateway to popular sun resorts such as Porto Pollensa and Port Soller.
Karen Switzer, Director of Aviation and Planning for Thomson and First Choice, said: “Today marks the start of our new Majorca route allowing customers in the Humberside area to fly direct, right from their doorstep. The introduction of the new route demonstrates our commitment to Humberside Airport and we are delighted to be once again flying from there. Following the success of similar routes across a number of regional airports, we know that the demand is there.
Deborah Zost, Humberside Airport’s Managing Director, said: “Thomson and First Choice returning to Humberside is a great vote of confidence for the airport as we welcome back one of the biggest holiday makers in the business. Bookings are strong and we hope the success of this year’s holiday programme will lead to more flights in the future.”
