New route to Almeria announced as part of Thomas Cook Airlines Summer 2017 programme
Thomas Cook Airlines is set to offer North East holidaymakers even more choice from Newcastle Airport in summer 2017 by adding an exciting brand new route to Almeria, a new service to Paphos and increasing to three weekly flights to Reus.
Costa de Almeria, full of family attractions and beautiful Spanish towns filled with shops, tapas bars and top hotels, is in the southeast of Spain and was the location of a number of Spaghetti Western films including ‘A Fistful of Dollars’, For a Few Dollars More' and 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly'.
Joining an existing service to Larnaca is the ancient town of Paphos. Located on the south-west coast of Cyprus, Paphos has been a popular destination for many years. Along with glorious sunshine, visitors will find ancient ruins and archaeological sites across the south, while the north is a bustling modern centre.
Holidays in Costa Dorada are within easy reach with the addition of a third weekly service to Reus allowing more choice of holiday durations with 10 & 11 nights now available.
Leon McQuaid, Aviation Development Director at Newcastle International Airport, said: “We are delighted to see these latest additions to Thomas Cook’s summer 17 programme from Newcastle.
“Almeria is a great addition, increasing our Spanish mainland destinations to seven in total and I am sure it will prove to be a popular choice with passengers.
“Paphos has always been a favoured destination with the North East public while the addition of a third flight to Reus brings more choice of holiday durations and further increases the appeal of the Costa Dorada for summer holidays.”
Thomas Cook Airlines' Director of Sales and Planning, Henry Sunley, said: "With our £100 million investment in cabin interiors, 25 new A321s entering our fleet, and James Martin meals on board, we’ve worked with our airport and airline partners to build a really great programme for summer 2017. It meets the changing demands of UK holidaymakers, and ensures that Brits can get great summer sun on a quality airline that puts its customers first.”
