Some good news from Thomas Cook:
Thomas Cook Airlines has today announced a range of new flights to the Caribbean from Manchester Airport.
The new Manchester routes on offer are the only flights available to holidaymakers outside London to St Lucia and Antigua and Thomas Cook Airlines is one of only a handful of airlines flying to Barbados.
Commencing Sunday November 10th 2013, the weekly Manchester-St Lucia-Barbados flight will operate on a specifically configured Boeing A330 aircraft, with the additional Manchester-Antigua-Barbados flight operating from Thursday December 19th.
Flights will depart late morning from Manchester, allowing travellers to benefit from a wide range of connections from regional airports across the UK
It's shaping up to be a great year for MAN.
