Thomas Cook Airlines -- Where Next?

Tue Jul 30, 2002 6:03 am

I'm not after guesses, and I [B]don't[/B] want anyone reeling off a list of their destinations. It's not a general knowledge test.

What I want to know is this: Is Th Cook looking at launching a new destination on or around 28th August?

If so, where?

We haven't had any new destinations confirmed to date for the winter, although both the A330's are off to the Hadjj for January. There was a rumour of 2 of the 757's being reconfigured for ETOPS operations, but apparently that is no longer the case (however watch this space...)

There are new destinations in the pipeline for winter 03, mostly long haul and still under wraps, but they are rumoured to be non typical charter destinations, USA cities, South America and possibly some Indian Ocean work.

What have you heard?

I understand there's a Th Cook PR exercise planned for 28-31 August (invited guests, etc)...my colleague apparently is on the list for an invite, and I'm curious to where it'll be -- not least because I might have to step into his shoes instead. Big grin

Do you mean offering low cost flights on "non bucket and spade" routes?! That really would be good! I've often wondered why the UK doesn't have an equivalent of what C3 was- offering cheap flights to destinations that aren't necessarily just beach resorts. JMC seems to be doing well on their Canadian routes (popular for seat onlys with the visiting friends and family market) so it might be good for them to try similar in other countries...

Heard the charters are keen on expanding the 'seat-only' market, whilst also getting rid of the mandatory 7 or 14 day stays in the usual Costa routes.

Would love to get a cheapo to South America-Rio, Salvador, Buenos Aires.....mmmmmm!
