So Thomson will have bother Thomsonfly and Britania? Any reason for the two airlines? Will they cater to different markets?

VirginFlyer, as far as I know, Britannia is and will be the charter carrier for Thomson Holidays and the new Thomsonfly.com will be a low-fare carrier. Similar to Hapag-Lloyd and Hapag Lloyd Express in Germany. Although rumors in Germany are that those two will merge.
