Thomas Cook Airlines has announced it will base an extra new aircraft at Glasgow Airport to support its newly launched Winter 2016 programme.

Customers looking for winter sun will benefit from another 25,000 seats available to the Canaries throughout the winter from the fleet of three full-time A321s. They’ll also see an additional five flights per week to the popular Canary Islands: Tenerife flights move up from seven to eight a week; Lanzarote moves up from two to four per week; Gran Canaria from one to two per week; and Fuerteventura move from two to three per week.


Thomas Cook Airlines’ director of sales and planning, Henry Sunley, said: “We’re so proud to have one of our newest A321s based permanently at Glasgow this winter. And as well as our new plane, which is one of 25 in our fleet , our customers can take advantage of our new pre-order duty free service, Airshoppen, and get their holiday treats delivered straight to their seat.”

Paul White, business development manager at Glasgow Airport said: “This is great news for Scottish travellers, particularly those looking to get away for some winter sun in 2016. The fact that Thomas Cook Airlines is bolstering these routes demonstrates the popularity of the Canary Islands amongst our customers, and also the airline’s ongoing commitment to Glasgow.

“We are excited that Thomas Cook Airlines will be basing an additional aircraft here at Glasgow for the winter season and we look forward to working in partnership with the airline to continue their growth at Glasgow Airport.”

Return flights to the Canary Islands are available for from £129.98 return in November 2016.
