Thomsonfly has added 12 new routes for its 2008 summer schedule, including flights to La Palma in the Canary Islands, and Puerto Vallarta in Mexico.
Both destinations will be served from London Gatwick and Manchester airports. There will also be new Thomsonfly flights to Cape Verde next summer from Manchester.
Also new are Thomsonfly flights to Crete from Bournemouth and Doncaster Sheffield airports, flights to Montego Bay in Jamaica from Birmingham, and flights to Gran Canaria from Doncaster Sheffield.
Two more routes will also be operating from Newcastle to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, and Cancun in Mexico.

It´s about time CUN was added to NCL´s flight programme. I hope it it very popular with NCL passengers.

Cape Verde seems a wise move for TOM, considering that there are a lot of opportunities present here for property investment, and is likely to develop into a big tourism market within the next few years or so. By getting a foothold in now, TOM can judge how popular this market becomes and can expand from other UK destinations in the next few years or so.

La Palma is interesting. I don't think that there are any UK-La Palma flights (correct me if I'm wrong) and, like Cape Verde, has huge potential and can offer a nice alternative to discerning travellers without going long-haul/breaking the bank for exclusive resorts.

I'm guessing that the SID flights will be 757 operated, considering the distance (even though Astraeus send 737s their SID flights), and the SPC flights will be 737s or 757s.

Didn´t Thomas Cook do La Palma flights a few years ago. I thought Thomson (or then BY) used to do La Palma flights.

What are TOM's plans with their 767-200s? Will they be retired soon?

Gatwick-Sal will also go twice weekly this winter, and continuing next summer, with a Friday flight being added to the existing Monday flight.

JMC flew to La Palma before they became TCX, as did BY.

AEU are doing some La Palma flights for Thomson this winter I think

TOM are taking over the Sunday AEA HUY-PMI flight next summer, meaning they will do HUY-PMI twice weekly. The Thursday flight is done with a DSA based B757, not sure about the Sunday flight

All are going onwards to Silverjet. G-BRIG is now in service with Silverjet and G-BRIF will join shortly after the summer season with Thomsonfly. G-BYAA and G-BYAB will leave the Thomsonfly fleet and onwards to Silverjet before the summer 08 season with the last one expected to leave TOM at the end of March 08 bringing an end of an era to the 767-200 aircraft with BY/TOM  Sad .

Shame to see them go; though they were never going to last forever with BY; especially considering the amount of cycles repeated seasons of European flights put on the 762 fleet. 767s are not really designed for the high-cycle 2hour flights that they have seemingly recently been used for.

I will be very sorry to see them go, having been on -BRIF, - BRIG and others many times. Was my first ever widebody and a stand in for a 737 flight ti Ibiza IIRC. I remember the check in agent peeling the numbers off a seat plan of a 762. Oh the excitement....
